Apple offering refunds, upgrades to recent iPhone 3GS buyers When Apple finally officially launched the iPhone 4 last week, the older iPhone 3GS had its price cut as a way to clear inventory.
If you purchased the Apple device in recent weeks, the company is now price matching, giving refunds back for the difference between the old price or the new price.

Additionally, users can get an upgrade to the new, improved iPhone 4 instead of the refund.

The policy is in effect for anyone who has bought a 3GS after May 7th.

Owners with a 16GB model will get a $50 credit and 32GB owners will get a $100 credit.

Anyone who purchased the smartphone between May 7 and May 14 are running out of time, however, and will need to put in a request at the store they bought the device by tomorrow, Monday the 14th.

To get an iPhone 4, the device is a straight trade, unless you are moving up in storage capacity (such as 16GB to 32GB models).

accepting the credit instead of the upgrade to the iphone 4 would be crazy. since it is called the closeout price even if you were still in your 30 days and then decided to exchange the 3GS you would not be able to. there is no taking it back.
