    I feel pretty confident that I can keep my anytime usage under 450.(fingers crossed for VOIP) I plan on getting unlimited text cause I text more than I talk. The 3g will be my first iphone and first at&t contract.

    Does the phone or at&t website keep track of my minutes? so that I can keep from going over.

    Do the *646# SMS (also available in the Settings) or you can look at stuff on the AT&T Web site through your account. The star feature is much easier and it's free. It's technically *MIN# (minutes), and you can also do *BAL# (balance) and a couple of others.

    at&t has an app in the app store that allows you to track minutes, data, etc. I use it to keep track of my family plan.

    Edit: Didn't realize this was a zombie thread.

    Bear in mind: if you get the unlimited texting plan, then you can get unlimited calling to any US mobile phone (regardless of network) included at no additional charge. Plus, you'll have 1500 night/weekend minutes.

    I text more than I talk, but I still use about 1,000 minutes a month. Even so, I'm on the 450 minute plan because 90% of my calls are to other cell numbers. So, not only am I still well within the plan, but I'm even backing hundreds of rollover minutes every month.

    Those rollover minutes can come in handy by the way. Once I did have to set up a lengthy conference call for work with 4 other phone lines, and the easiest way to do it ended up being on my iPhone (which on AT&T can conference up to 5 people in a call at once). That month I did blow away my 450 minutes, but I had thousands of rollover minutes that easily covered the overage.

    Neither did ken984 nor scaredpoet. That's what happens with the zombie threads, one post and you're zombiefied.
