    some people on engadget have been claiming that thery are seeing an upgrade price of 150, not 200, my portal show 199, but I cannot complete the pre-order, the page only half loads. I have tried on several computers. but at least they are letting me keep my unlimited data!

    I show $399 after a one hundred dollar discount (I am barely 6 months in on a new contract for the iPhone 4) but it won't let me complete the order either. I thought it was the browser on my iPad so I tried it from a desktop and same thing. Page looks like it only half loads. Bummer. I was thinking about calling them.

    I tried again and it let me go through the whole process of entering card info and all that but at the very end it said it couldn't complete my order. So i called them and ordered over the phone. Ended up signing up for a new contract (really just extending it for 6 months from where i was at) and got it for $333 after tax and next day shipping. Woohoo. Now just need to countdown the days.

    I haven't had a contract with AT&T for 2 years now, as I am still using the Tilt/Tytn II with custom ROMs. When I went through the preorder/upgrade process it offered me the $150.00 price. Once I get the go ahead from the wifey :eek: I will go ahead and order it. I was planning on waiting to see if BestBuy or Amazon could beat the 199.99 pricetag, but it looks like I don't have to worry about that.

    Here is a screenshot that I took of my preorder page for proof:

    I just signed up today, but I have been reading y'alls forum for a few weeks now. I'm pumped about this phone!!

    Another person got theirs for $149.99. Here is his FB post on AT&T's page:

    Scott Duffy I got my Atrix 4G Pre-ordered at a corporate store this morning since the Premier site was acting up. Got to keep my unlimited data and got $50 off for being a loyal customer. Thanks AT&T! Can't wait for this phone to show up at my door!

    Wish I can get one for $150....

    I would just explain to the wife that you can't afford not to get it at that price. :)

    Hey how did you get the upgrade for so cheap. Isn't what you did considered an early upgrade meaning the price would be around $400?

    huh ?

    Dunno. I originally told him i just wanted to buy it off contract but he told me that if i renewed my contract the price would be $299 so i went ahead and did it since i am only 25% percent on anyway.

    It appears you have a question but you will have to elaborate if you require a more thorough explanation of a joke.

    I pre-ordered mine last night for $149.99 (plus $9 tax)! I also got to keep my unlimited data plan!!! :D I was worried about not being able to keep that. I had an iphone 3G, so I was about six months overdue for an upgrade. I think that's why I got the $50 off. I had a $5 200/month texting package and had occasionally gone over and was thinking of going with the $10 1000/month package, but when I was checking out I found I could get a unlimited data plan with *1500* texts for $39.99. I was also kinda waiting to see if BB or Amazon would have it for $149 (and sooner) but since there seemed to be no concrete clues that they would, and then finding out I could get it for $149 from AT&T, I took the plunge. I also thought it might be a better way to manage my plan/features and make sure I got what I wanted at the right price. It took me at least five tries to check out successfully, but it finally worked. I got a confirmation email that said it would arrive in 3-5 business days, but I'm not holding my breath (I am crossing my fingers though). ;) I can't wait til it arrives and I'll be looking around here for any word on delivery dates. Hope this info helps. Now off to shop for accessories... :)

    Wow, how exactly did you manage that? I am in a similar situation as you, and if I could get that deal I would be ecstatic. Seeing as how I am on a family plan and not the primary account holder, I don't think I will have such luck though.

    I didn't ask for anything special. As a matter of fact i was originally asking to just order it off contract but he volunteered the $299 price. I am the primary account holder on a family plan with four lines though if that would make a difference.

    that "upgrade advantage" discount of $50, is that because you have been out of contract for some period of time?

    I ordered mine today at my Local store and got charged $149.99.

    I'm not sure why, I was eligible for an upgrade in December (I think) and I was upgrading from an Iphone 3GS. All my receipt says in regards to a discount is a 2 YR Agreement Savings of $350.00.

    That's the only thing that I can figure. I bought my Tytn II when it first came out, I believe in Nov. of '07.

    My wife is definitely down with the $150 price. The past 2 weeks I have been telling her that there were rumors of Bestbuy and/or Amazon getting this phone for $150, so she wasn't going to let me preorder this from AT&T until we found out the prices from those two places.

    I just went to an AT&T store and they told me that if I were to preorder with them, it would be $200. They couldn't match the $150 price for some reason, so I'm going to preorder it right now!!

    I just called ATT and was told to go to my local store to preorder the phone at $199 and that they couldn't adjust the price for me.

    I think it's a loyalty thing and not so much that I was overdue. I believe it's to do with how long you've been with them and if you're in good standing. Like the longer you've been a customer the quicker/sooner you can get an upgrade discount. It also has something to do with the price of your plan - higher price = more/bigger discounts apparently. I've been with them for 10+ years but I have a lower price plan so I got the discount but have to pay a 1/2 price upgrade/renewal fee ($18) which I believe would be waived if I were on a more expensive plan. There may be other factors but I wasn't questioning it - just grabbing that price and checking out. ;)

    I wonder how long you have to be out of contract for the upgrade advantage. my contract ended on the first of this month. if you just have to be out of contract for more than a month, than I could really work with that.

    i've only been out of contract for 6 months, but been a customer for 11 years. from everything thing i confirmed over the phone, the lady from premier CS said she didn't change anything in my plan (no new contract-kept unlimited data) and sold the phone outright for 149.99 + tax, activation fee waived. I hope this holds true, but even if it doesn't it'll only show up as a 1 yr extension since she said she just upgraded the device. cross fingers and hope for early shipments!

    It looks like it depends on both how long it's been since activation/upgrade and how much you spend on your monthly rate plan/data package. This chart explains it.

    I'm looking at $299 -$100 if I pre-order, on contract, and I just upgrade back in July 2010. Seems like a good offer (it looks like $100 over normal upgrade pricing?)

    I just went to local ATT store on my lunch break. I was able to pre-order the Atrix. Apparently, I have been a customer for so long (I was a Cingular customer in 1996) they only charged me 99.99 + 5.10 tax.

    I am not sure if the discount I get from my company helped or not... but just wanted to give the info.

    P.S. The guy also mentioned that he was going to have the phone shipped to the store so that he could manually screw around with my data plan so I don't lose the UNLIMITED data i currently have. He said it could be done from home... but he wanted to make sure it was done right.

    No complaints.

    ^^ Very cool! I've been on Cingular since 2000 or 2001. I am interested to see what (if any) reward is waiting for me if I preorder this phone. I assume it's best for me to go to the store and shmooze with someone in order to get this?
