I've heard from a source inidse' that there will be a price for existing customers to get it the rumoured date of that announcement is July 24th. Expect it to be $200-300 above the price for the phone essentially it's the no contract price except it comes with a contract. AT&T is offering theirs for $499/$599 (8/16gb) but they will still be locked to AT&T.Not sure if even that will be worth it for most people. You'd be better off picking up a 1st gen iPhone and adding the $30/6gb data plan to it. Firmware updates are forthcoming so you'll eventually have access to the App store. My wife is currently using mine because she's not eligible until March 09. At least this way she's got the locked in data plan pricing. Only thing she's missing is visual voicemail.
