    I was hoping that AT&T would announce more competitively prices plans for the new 3GS coming out but I haven't seen anything around, not that I have had much time to look.

    Other carriers now offer great phones with full web capabilities for much lower prices. Does anyone know if AT&T will do the same thing? On my 2G iPhone I pay $15ish less a month then all my friends with 3G iPhones because my plan is older but I still get unlimited data and text. I'm going to upgrade if they plans get cheaper or not but being the broke college student that I am, I'd rather not have to pay the extra money per month.

    It still runs on the 3G network, so prices won't be different.

    Seriously? Every other company dropped prices to get people away from buying the iPhone and I'm shocked AT&T cares that much about selling only iPhones that they won't follow

    Why would they drop the prices if it is a 3G smartphone? iPhone uses a whole lot of data

    I think any price drop from AT&T would surround the iPhone data plan; however, I think you’re going to pay for that price drop by having a cap on your data for a lower monthly price. I know for someone like me or my wife who uses our iPhones all day for surfing, e-mail, etc, having unlimited data pays for itself ten times over.

    Plans are the same. I doubt they're going to change. However, that would be very nice. If they do change, however, you will be able to change as well.

    I wouldn't mind if they drop the data plans by $5

    Were the iPhone to go to another carrier next year (like it hopefully will), then you might finally see a price drop since AT&T will have some competition. Until then, don't expect anything out of AT&T.
