iPhone update!

I've decided to get the new iPhone 3GS, and today I changed my mind on waiting to see if AT&T lowers the data plan or not--even if they don't, it's a few bucks cheaper than what I'm paying now, so it makes less sense to wait than I thought at first.

Then I saw this, and started scheming. I think I want it ASAP, rather than waiting until the lines have died down a few weeks from now. However, I want my activation fee ($36!!!!) waived, or a free something or other (case, screen cover or something). I've been a customer of AT&T for almost 10 years at this point, and paying $36 for no reason irritates me. Last time I upgraded my phone, I got a sweet deal, but Apple won't let them discount the phone so I'm going to see what else they can do. Tomorrow when I get out of work, I'm going to duck into an AT&T store and talk to someone in person to see if they can cut me a deal.

If not, I guess I'll probably order online for delivery to my office next Friday. I don't really want to deal with the hordes of people or go wait in line in a store at 7 a.m., but packages usually get to me quickly at work. And if not, I'll get it on Monday the 22nd without having to hate humanity.
