AT&T is offering customers that purchased an iPhone 3GS in the last month credits to cover the combination iPod and smartphone’s recent price drop. Customers are eligible for a US$50 bill credit if they purchased the 16GB model, or a $100 credit for the 32GB model.
The cell service provider is calling the deal a “one-time Customer Protection” offer, according to ModMyi. Customers that purchased their new iPhone 3GS between May 7 and May 14 have until June 14 to claim their bill credit.
Apple lowered the price of the 16GB iPhone 3GS from $199 to $149, and the 32GB model from $299 to $199 following the introduction of the new iPhone 4 at the company’s annual World Wide Developer Conference on June 7. The updated iPhone model will be available for pre-order on June 15, and will ship on June 24.
For subscribers that would rather have the new iPhone 4 instead of their just purchased iPhone 3G or 3GS, AT&T will let them exchange the phone and the entire purchase price will be applied to the newer model when it ships.
