Upgrade Eligibility Reversal after returning iPhone 5 to Apple.com
I ordered my iPhone 5 on 10/8/2012 at Apple.com. I didn't get the phone until 11/1/2012. The phone shipped on 10/27/2012. My contract at AT&T was renewed from 10/8/2012 to 10/7/2014
Apple.com allows 30 days return from shipped date of 10/27/2012. What date will AT&T use to determine whether the upgrade eligibility can be reversed? (14 days after I got the phone? 30 days after I signed the contract? etc)
I'm going to mail the iPhone back on Monday 11/5/2012 (Apple will probably get it on 11/8/2012 or 11/9/2012). Can my AT&T upgrade eligibility still be reversed since the iPhone will be returned?
I'm confused about the timing especially since I order the phone directly from the Apple Store.
Do I have to do anything after Apple.com processes the return with AT&T?
