    Hello all, I am currently in a 2 yr contract w/ Verizon which I am about to opt out of & already spoke with AT&T about coming over to them ( they are giving me $125 credit for terming my service w/ VW and coming to them which is cool ) anyways...I just called AT&T sales to discuss plans for the iPhone and they said they are not allowed to discuss data plans and that I can go to an AT&T store or 3rd party store to discuss the data plans b/c there are 7-8 different ones. They said that I need the minimum plan which is $30/month. I was totally unaware that there are so many data plans so I was hoping that someone here can advise me on which one I should get and if there is a site that explains them all. Like I said, I never knew that there were so many data plans so any input would be much appreciated!! Thanks for your time.

    Scott

    You can look online at the AT&T site. Personal data plan is $30 though.

    $30 is the data plan that allows me unlimited internet usage correct?

    If you don't mind me asking...

    How'd you talk them into this $125 credit? I've been thinking about doing the same time for quite some time now, just haven't had enough incentive. I think $125 might be just the incentive I need.

    As far as the $125 credit goes, I basically called and spoke to a CSR and explained that I have 1 yr left on my verizon contract and was very intererested in switching to AT&T b/c me & my wife wanted iPhones and I asked if there were any special promotions for new customers who are opt'ing out of their existing contract w/ a competitor so the rep said they didnt think so but put me on hold & spoke with a manager and came back with the news of the $125 credit to my account once I join. I called again this morning and it's noted in the system still. They created a profile for me under my existing verizon # since I am gonna switch my # over to them when I make the move.

    AT&A ain't what it says it is

    You may be better off by staying with Verizon
    I have an Iphone and it is rare that I can make a phone call. The signal strength is terrible.

    On the other hand, I have AT&T and get full signal at my house while my neighbor with Verizon always complains he can't get service on our street.

    i would. economy is ****, and companies will do things to get more customers. esp, if he is going as an individual and not a family plan.

    and honestly, I have enjoyed ATT for about 10 years now. They have waived so many fees for me over the years. I really like them as a company.

    ^ The storm really sucks, no apps or anything yet. The tactile feedback thing is cool, but do you type 24/7 on a phone? If you do, you need a real life.
