That's basically what we've been hearing all over the place as well. Since we're still a few weeks off till the arrival of the new iPhone I'd not jump to conclusions yet. There's too many unknowns

So what exactly is considered "full-price"? I was expected to pay more than my 1st gen anyways.

Considering that the original source is AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel, I'd consider it pretty authoritative.

I love the titling of this thread. The "HEY EVERYONE" is kinda implied since it's a messageboard, but our poster takes it to that next level by spelling it out. Good stuff.
