I asked at the local corporate store in CT, the early upgrade price for the Galaxy S is $275 (with contract extension for 2 years). I however called up AT&T, got to the "cancellation department"... and was able to get it for $199 being a loyal customer for many years. Shipping soon... can't wait!
Just picked up mine at Walmart for $148, got one for the wife yesterday at COR store for $199, people were getting them at Walmart's website for $229 outright this morning and if you do an upgrade it's free there. Always pays to shop around, but anyway, it's a great phone and you'll love it.
Seems several of the $229 outright orders have been canceled so they may have fixed the glitch and it is now $499 just like AT&T
