Okay, we’ve now got the skinny on what it will cost you to buy an iPhone 4, regardless of what situation you are in and your existing contract status. Here’s the breakdown:
If your upgrade date is anytime from now through December 31, 2010, you qualify for an early upgrade and get best pricing on the iPhone 4. That means you can buy the 16GB model for $199, or the 32GB model for $299 with new two-year contract.
Now, if your upgrade date is January 1, 2011 or later, then you qualify for an early update price, which is $399 for the 16GB model, and $499 for the 32GB iPhone 4 with new two-year contract.
Lastly, there are those who just don’t want to be tethered to AT&T, and would rather just buy the phone outright with no commitment. That’s fine too. If that’s you, then you’ll pay $599 for the 16GB model, or $699 for the 32GB model.
So there you have it—you’ve got two weeks to decide!
