Rogers changes hardware upgrade eligibility to ... 3 months !

After an unprecedented amount of requests for early hardware upgrades for the express purpose of obtaining the iPhone 3G, Rogers has changed the rules for the iPhone 3G only: if an account has been active for three months, you can upgrade to the iPhone 3G for Tier 1 pricing, plus the $35 activation fee.

Enjoy.

Considering that upgrade eligibility is 24 months for most other phones/customers, and was dropped to 12 months for the iPhone 3G, to have it at 3 months now is somewhat remarkable. If you upgraded three months ago or more, there is no reason _not_ to upgrade now.

I believe this is correct, but it's hell for me getting there. I've talked to six CSR, the fifth hung up on me (I think by mistake). It guess I was getting a discount of some sort which made some of them think I was on a corporate plan so I was transfered her/there including to the cable department. Some said I couldn't upgrade and others said I could, but for $249 and $349 + $35 activation. What a mess. So nothing is wrong with my account after a senior level person checked it out. However, I now need to wait 24 hours since they removed this one code that got placed on my account somehow and the change needs to take place. Once that is done I'll have someone call me and go through the whole process again. Weeks later and many people still have no clue what they are doing ...

Yes
I switched in May 08.
CSR just told me I'm eligible as of tomorrow (Aug 9)
Also told me I had the choice to order over phone and have it shipped, or visit a Rogers store to complete the upgrade.
