Does AT&T offer partially discounted phone upgrades? My wife has an iPhone 4 and wants to get the 4S. Obviously she hasn't had the 4 for two years so a fully discounted upgrade isn't an option, but do they offer partial discounts with a contract extension?

Not usually, but you can call and ask.

If it's been at least a year, they will usually let you upgrade assuming you sign a new 2 yr contract at that point.

That's what I did when I upgraded from the 3G to the 3GS a few years ago.

Yes they do, but I don't know when the early upgrade is allowed. I'm thinking around 12-14 months, maybe 16. Normal upgrade for me has been about every 20 months, not 24. The price on the early upgrades is usually $200 more than the full subsidized, so $399, $499 and $599 for the iPhone instead of $199, $299 and $399.

They will let you do it early but I'm not sure when. When you log into your account and go to upgrade it will tell you the earliest date you will be eligible for discounted upgrades.

I bought my iPhone 4 on 2/26/2011 and it says I'm eligible for a discount on 7/26/2012.

They do, but it's an extra $250 over the regular upgrade fee and you have to sign a new committment. Go yto AT&T website, put in your mobile number, and they will text you the cost to upgrade.

I'm pretty sure the early upgrade some are thinking of is for a family plan/bundle w/e. The main account holder gets upgrades every year while the secondary users have to wait 2 years

Go to a store. Sometimes they will upgrade and just have you renew your contract again.
