I have been reading up on all the posts and still have some questions. I recently purchased an itouch (32gb) and hubby thought I should just return it and buy an iphone. I was on the fence, but leaning more towards it. I currently have At&T and have been out of contract for years. We are on the 700 min family plan for $69.99 which is way too much (about 500-1k min expire every month). Hubby has an old LG and I have an unbranded Nokia smartphone which still allows me to get the unlimited family data plan ($10 for each phone) and $30 family msg unlimited. If I just get one iphone, what happens to the unlimited family data and unlimited msging plans? I assume I would have to get the iphone data plan, but could hubby just keep his $10 family data plan or does that go away? I have read some complaints about the iphone4 vs iphone 3gs, and my friends say to just get the iphone 3gs. Have the iphone4 issues been resolved or any recs on which one to get? So if I go and get an iphone for just me (I will give hubby the unbranded Nokia), I would like the unlimited plan for iphone but AT&T said although I do have family data unlimited plan it would not be grandfathered to the unlimited for an iphone. So I thought I would just do that trick to get the unlimited plan as outlined in another thread. BUT I dont have an iphone yet, so wouldn't they make me get one of the other plans at that point? Would I still be able to do the trick and get the unlimited after I have the iphone? I will be using the phone for the obvious uses (talk, text, videos for my son) and I would love to be able to use skype to see my husband when he is deployed. Any other things I may not realize once I have an iphone. Is it really worth the additional cost every month and getting into another 2 year contract with AT&T (although I dont mind AT&T, I just hate contracts. lol). Thanks for any advice!
