Last week, the Apple iPhone 4 was announced, causing AT&T to cut the price of the iPhone 3GS. Those who bought one of Apple’s smartphones in recent weeks can get a refund to the new price, or an upgrade to the new model.

According to a temporary AT&T policy, anyone who purchased an iPhone between May 7 and the day the prices for the iPhone 3GS dropped can get a refund of the difference between what they paid and the new price.

People who bought an iPhone 3GS between May 7 and the day the iPhone 4 was announced have the option of exchanging their current device for an iPhone 4.
