Here's some amazing news for folks who wanted to upgrade to the iPhone 3G S, but didn't want to pay the full price and sign a new contract: AT&T just announced via its Facebook page that it will be extending its upgrade prices to current AT&T customers who purchased an iPhone 3G last year and aren't yet available for upgrade prices (that would be all of you). And if you've already pre-ordered your iPhone 3G S online, you should expect an email from AT&T alerting you to a nice refund. Even better news? If you purchase a new iPhone 3G S at full cost, you won't have to sign a new contract. That's right baby, "commitment free."

The iPhone 3G S early upgrade prices will be $399 for the 16GB model and $499 for the 32GB. These prices will be posted on AT&T's website tomorrow, June 18. Although full retail prices will remain the same at $599 for 16GB and $699 for the 32GB iPhone 3G S, you'll now be able to buy without a contract. Today's announcement gives iPhone customers who are upgrade eligible in July, August or September 2009 the ability to upgrade for only $199 or $299.
