I have been patiently waiting for the new iPhone 4 to come out - not for me to buy, but so that the 16gb iPhone 3 can drop down to the $49/m plan that I am on. I am now due for a free phone upgrade at no extra cost - our network sent me a letter AND an email alerting me to this fact. They had a heap of other phones available for free, but no iPhone. And when I looked online, it appears that they don't even have ANY other iPhones available except the new iPhone 4's. (This is with my network - I'm not up for changing networks at the moment.)

What gives?

I thought they'd be throwing the old ones at people, trying to get rid of them while simultaneously marketing the hell out of the 4's. (Actually, they are, and just about everyone I know is getting them, waiting for them, or about to get them.)

I don't get it. Maybe I just have to wait longer while they sort it out or something. *sigh* Of course I want a new phone, but I also want to give my old one to my little sister. Her 'teenage ways' are scaring my mother and it would be nice to be able to contact her and know where she is at times!

    Clever! I've been looking at something similar as well....

    In the US, AT&T (who currently has the sole contract with Apple for the iPhone) is being very strict about their iPhones. I guess they make too much money on contracts and rates on them to give any leeway.

    I've also tried looking at unlocked phones on eBay and then coming back to get pre-pay service, but AT&T told me that it's the only phone they will not sell pre-pay minutes to. Very irritating.

    As much as I do love Apple products (and I really do), I'm also very tempted to move away from it. Anyways, good luck!

    gosh that's annoying! we don't have anything like that here thank god. Like you I would very much consider going away from the product if one network had such a hold over it. I'd probably consider a letter of complaint as well Big Grin but that's probably because i like to complain about things haha...

    Here in the US they have iPhone 3G's available at Walmart, etc. It wouldn't be free, but a lot less expensive than an iPhone4. Maybe there's something like that in AU?

    I'd like an iPhone, but I'm not going to pay for it Smile I've never paid any money for a phone before, always had them free with contracts.
