Sometimes I read Source Code for fun. Today I was doing just that on the Rogers iPhone 4 site and came across quite a find.
Here’s what I’ve found:
Button for Upgrade Check;
(This will appear directly above the iOS 4 Button currently on the page)
The Code for the Button, which is currently hidden in <!– / –> tags.
(I’m having issues posting code here, so this is an image – click to see full size)
As far as I can tell, the ‘/web/portlets/consumer/campaign/upgradeEligibility.jsp’ that this calls to either doesn’t function yet, or is empty. (Like I said though, I’m no expert).
What we do know is that there are three results you could get after entering your phone number:
Congratulations! You are eligible.
Sorry! You are NOT eligible.
Sorry! You are NOT eligible until after XXX*
(*Function defined here, I assume it will be # of months).
As of posting this, the code can be easily viewed by “View Source” on the Rogers iPhone 4 Page. As far as I can tell, the code doesn’t give any specifics on what the upgrade policies are, but I’m happy to be proven wrong if a reader has a more keen eye than me.
Rogers has REMOVED the Button Code that I have in the image above (previously it was just hidden).
However, the button itself is still online: http://www.rogers.com/cms/images/en/NewRogers/Wireless/iPhone4G/upgrade_badge.gif
Someone read my post, that’s sweet. Hi Rogers! *waves*
