When I opened a new AT&T account with DSL internet service, I recently added wireless service with a family plan and opted for the new I-Phone 4S (two phones). The new I-Phones were free, just had to pay for shipping of these phones. Can I upgrade to the new I-Phone 5 when it becomes available and what will happen to our existing contract with the I-Phone 4S? Thank You.

When did you get those iPhones? You can buy a new phone at any time, but the question is how much you'll pay for it.

I received the two I-Phone 4s's last May or so when I added wireless service. So if I'm only offered a specific discounted rate for the upgrade, I'll sell both of my I-phones on Ebay to offset the cost of the I-Phone 5. I'm just wondering what will be the discounted rate will be...

If you only had them for 3-4 months than you'll have to pay a full retail price for the new one ($649+ curently). It usually takes 18-20 months to qualify for an upgrade ($199+ curently) or at least 6 months to qualify for an early upgrade ($449+ curently).

CORRECTION! I found an e-mail welcoming me with my I-Phone 4S on January 26 of this year. Why I thought it was May is beyond me... Appreciate your replies greatly!
You are still going to be out of luck! Go to the My Account in the organge bar above and log-in or create an online account. From there you can check you upgrade eligibility and it will give you your dates.
