Question on upgrade options-from the AT&T site

I have 4 iPhones on my account. 2 lines have 3GS and 2 lines have the 4. We (my husband and I) usually use 2 upgrades a year and get 2 new iPhones and pass along the models we have to our Moms.

 

So I went to the AT&T site to check to see which phone is eligible for the upgrade at the discount rate for a new iPhone. It's not super clear to me what the site is saying.

 

The 1 3GS and the 2 iPhone 4's say this: 'You're eligible for an upgrade at a discounted price.'

 

The other 3GS says: 'As a valued AT&T customer, you're eligible for a discounted iPhone upgrade at a reduced discount, along with a 2-year service commitment.'

 

So what is the difference between the 2 statements? Is the 2nd statement saying that I would get the contract price for a new iPhone like I did in the past with paying $200 for the phone?

 

Thanks

 

**I forgot to add that the last time I was on the AT&T site checking eligibility (about a week ago), I did get a date on each phone for when it could be upgraded. Now all I get is what I put on this post in bold and no date. Is there another place I should be looking to see the date again? Or did AT&T change the site and get more vague so I'm forced to call and ask?

The reduced discount, at least for me, means that you don't get the phone for $199. You have to pay an extra $250 on top of that. That's what it shows for me right now. I'm eligible for the full discount on 11/18.

Ok, I'll have to call and see what's up. I don't understand why I don't see any dates when it was there before. Kind of annoying, ya know?
