    I have a basic cell phone at work that they pay for. I never see a bill so I have no idea how much extra money it costs each month for a smart phone.
    I'm debating an iphone if it is announced today and am curious how much extra I can expect to pay each month if my voice and data plan cost roughly $70 a month.

    for me
    Verizon Wireless' and Other Charges & Credits $1.23
    Taxes, Governmental Surcharges & Fees $1.16

    It all depends on your area to. I live in Delaware and they dont charge that much. But I know people that pay up to $15 per line in Maryland.
