    How can I get around the Hardware Upgrade Program (HUP)?


    I have only had my phone for about 8 months and was told I am not eligible to upgrade until the 24 month mark or I can pay a early HUP fee of $20 a month for 6 months at the 18 month period.

    Is there any way to get around this so that I can pay $159 for the iphone4 instead of $659? I really want to upgrade the phone but don't want to pay such a high price nor do I want to wait another year and a half!!!

    Thank you for your input.

    I would wait until the iPhone 5 comes out, and see if there are any "exceptions" as there have been in previous years with new iPhones. The alternative is to try to deal with retentions. There's another subforum dedicated to dealing with them but your results may be different. Do your competitive research and crunch your numbers ...
