Yes, you are interpreting that correctly. For whatever reason (longtime AT&T customer?) they have bumped you up. If you didn't qualify, you'd be getting a different, more depressing message that includes the date when you will qualify.
1. If you qualify for the discount, when you go to your account at AT&T Wireless, under Upgrade Options > iPhone Upgrade it should say: As a valued AT&T customer, we can offer you a discounted iPhone upgrade with a new 2-year commitment and an $18 upgrade fee.2. If you don't qualify (yet), it should say (always with a 2011 date for when you will qualify for the full discount -- the date given happens to be my own): As a valued AT&T customer, we can offer you a discounted...
I bought a 3GS on August 1, 2009, and my current upgrade date is January 2, 2011. I don't know how they calculate that date, but it looks like I can't get the new model early at a discount -- if I want it now, I'll have to pay the $200 "early upgrade" premium.
Let's see -- they had the name of the guy who lost it, access to his Facebook account, and the knowledge that he is an Apple employee, but they just couldn't figure out how to return it to him? They made a generic call to Apple instead? I don't think their claim of making a good-faith effort to return it holds much water.
Exactly. Plus, obviously, companies other than Apple are free to build them. Indeed, they already do. I'd be willing to bet a third-party external (Bluetooth?) videoconferencing camera will be sold as an accessory for the iPad from day one.On this question, see Roughly Drafted.
The article doesn't say they plan to do anything like that. You sound like a troll when you repeat that over and over when AT&T hasn't said anything of the sort.They plan to offer "incentives" to get data hogs to change their ways. I'll guess that means free stuff, but whatever -- it certainly doesn't mean breaching contracts.
Hello? Read the article! They are not saying they are going to change existing contracts -- they are saying they will give bandwidth-hogging users incentives to "reduce or modify their usage."I don't know what "incentives" means in this context, but it certainly doesn't mean they intend to break any contracts except by mutual consent between the parties.
See here: Apple iPhone eats up 50% share of all mobile data traffic globally [55% in the U.S., Q3 2009] Verizon has yet to deal with this kind of massive load on their 3G network. As Droid takes off, they will start to feel it, and start having the same kinds of problems AT&T is coping with now. You're dreaming if you think Verizon is going to react any differently -- indeed, if ifail is right (see above, #11), then Verizon already has caps. This is inevitable. But...
Funny you should choose iData to ask about. It is a very long-lived application. Mike Wright and Robin Casady have been around since the late 1980s -- the program was called QuickDEX at first, then InfoGenie, and finally iData in the late 1990s. Mike was an employee who purchased his program from his employer when they went out of business. See here:http://db.tidbits.com/article/7761
There are basically two kinds of people posting here: those who have worked on the insides of computers for a living and those who haven't. While opinions are all over the place amongst those who haven't, everyone with experience repairing computers understands where a policy like this is coming from. I agree with the person who said that this is probably the result of a lawsuit, most likely elsewhere in the industry. After all, technicians have been handling machines...
