Swisscom iPhone upgrade

Hey,

So my contract with Swisscom ends in 3 months (october) and I know now would be the time to announce that I want an upgrade but I have a quick question: I have to tell them by July 15th since my contract gets renewed by October. Can I get the new phone (iPhone 4) before October? Has anyone had any experience with this?

My current iPhone is long overdue for a smashing. It insists on changing time zones every couple of hours and is practically on its own calendar. Not to mention it eats my apps and emails when it feels like it.
AND I'll charge it for hours, it'll act as if it never got plugged in and die and when I restart it, it'll be fully charged.

I've restored it 1000 times, no change. Can't wait for my new phone.

Re: Swisscom iPhone upgrade

when I ordered my new iphone last year ( swisscom / Geneva ) I was told there would be a 4-5 week waiting period.

I had the phone within two weeks.


just had a re.read.. getting the phone before your current contract ends.... I honestly think they don't care so much.. so long as you sign a nice new contract

You're right. I got an iPhone 4 on a Swisscom contract two weeks ago. The previous contract still had a couple of months to run, but by re-committing for a new 24-month period I got the phone over the counter immediately at a discounted price.

usually, you can get a new phone 3 months before the contract rolls over.
However, you might want to think twice about buying an iPhone 4 now, since the next iPhone will be coming out in late September / early October.

Re: Swisscom iPhone upgrade

Well I was thinking I'd renew for a one year plan instead because we all know the charming waiting list that a new iPhone has when it comes out...

Anyone know when Apple has their conference to announce the arrival of new products? I've heard all the september/october rumors but we have yet to hear anything from apple.

The conference is set for September, AFAIK. Typically, it'll be another couple of weeks after that until the new devices hit the stores. And they'll probably be in short supply until before Christmas
