“AT&T in a very low-profile move has raised early and exception upgrade pricing for iPhones and other smartphones,” Electronista reports.
“A notice to store staff has warned that, as of Sunday, users are paying $50 more,” Electronista reports. “The move would change the premature upgrade price from $249 for an iPhone 3GS to $299, and up to $449 or $549 for an iPhone 4 before normal eligibility comes up.”
Electronista reports, “A separate memo both confirms the price hikes and showed across-the-board pricing increases. With the exception of the iPhone, pricing will go up sharply for anyone buying a phone contract-free or a shoretened one-year contract. Those without a contract will pay at least $50 more, AndroidCentral saw, while one-year buyers will spend a large $150 more.”
