iPhone craziness

So this all started Sunday.

I dropped my iPhone and the screen stopped working. Bummer right?
Well then I started thinking, if apple gives me a brand new one, I can sell that one online for more than the price of the new 16GB 3GS model with the 2 year upgrade which would be $199.

So they gave me a new iPhone luckily and I started doing research. Turns out that the early upgrade fee of $18 is not what I thought. After talking with an at&t rep over the phone, I learned that if I do an early upgrade with at&t, the 16GB 3GS model is $299 + a $75 early upgrade fee. So that was a bummer, but I could probably still get $375 for my iphone seeing as they are still retailing at $500.

So I went ahead and listed my iPhone on craigslist and eBay.

Then I saw a news article about at&t allowing some users to be immediately eligible for the 2 year upgrade if blah blah blah... I wasn't going to be eligible for that, but right below the article it said "Or do an early upgrade and get the 16GB 3GS for $399" . $399??! She said $299!!

Great. Now my iPhone is going to sell cheap and I am going to have to pony up $475 to get a new one.

So I called back again, frustrated, and talked to another at&t rep who seemed less knowledgeable than the first one. He apologized about the mix up and confirmed it would be $399. However, after being on hold forever, he told me the early upgrade fee is only $18, not $75. What was the first woman I talked to on??

So as it stands, I need my current iPhone to sell for about $425 for me to be in the clear like I originally thought I was.

Anyone want an iPhone?

When I get back from Peru on the 13th, there are a couple things I will be expecting.

I expect Apple to release the following:
iPhone software 3.0
New iPhones
Snow Leopard
and PLEASE Final Cut Studio 3

I expect the Panasonic "E" series P2 card that I preordered to be at my house.

I expect the Lakers to have won the NBA Finals...come on Kobe!

I expect everyone to have an amazing time at the Coldplay concert...have fun.

This will be quite an event filled week for everyone not leaving the country so enjoy it!

Also please keep me in your prayers for safe travel and that none of my equipment breaks/gets stolen while I am over there.
