Now that you know more than enough about the upcoming iPhone, you’re probably wondering when you’ll be getting it. Well, while we don’t have a definitive shipping date for you quite yet, there are plenty of little hints that all point in the same direction; June 2010.
Indeed, on top of the WWDC being scheduled for June 7th and the surrounding rumors, AT&T is slowly pushing up its early upgrade eligibility dates for iPhone owners. Not everybody gets the same treatment as upgrade eligibility is strongly related to the amounts on your monthly bill. Nevertheless, most users are noticing that they should be eligible for a little iPhone upgrade this June, and some even earlier. If you consider that AT&T’s employees have been asked not to take vacations around the same period, this gives us quite a compelling picture of when will Steve be giving us our next iPhone.
But why is AT&T all of a sudden being so nice? It might be nothing, but there is another rumor circulating today saying that Verizon might be getting the iPhone as well, but only in September. This would explain quite well why AT&T is looking into locking as many users as they can for 2 more years.
Anyway, check your own eligibility date now by dialing *639# from your iPhone and share your results in the comments.
