I am one of the unlucky people that got stuck with a high early upgrade price (additional $250 + $18 +2yr contract iPhone price) and I have been seeking out methods to get the new iphone 4s without a high cost. Several of my friends have given me input and here are a few, if you have any additional please post them!
-add a line to your current account: you can keep the new line or cancel it for still less then the full price of the new iPhone and your original line will still have its regular expiration date in case you want to change carriers or upgrade phones.
-switch carrier: it does in fact come out cheaper to cancel your service with AT&T, goto a different carrier and pay the lower 2 year contract price of the iPhone 4s, and now other carriers offer unlimited data plans as wel las other perks.
-just wait: it seems some people recieved the lower cost of the upgrade while other did not reguardless of purchase date, account status ect so there might be an announcement or otherwise on AT&T's part
Also if you are interested in leaving AT&T and you are worried about your contract, a simple search on google will show you several completely legitimate ways to cancel your contract at no added cost to yourself (changes to terms of service on our bills for ex) and this might be the cheapest method besides just waiting
I hope this helps!
