    I watched Morgan Webb's WebbAlert podcast (http://webbalert.com/2008/06/june-11th.html) from June 11th and she said that existing iPhone customers will continue to pay the $20 a month rate for the new 3G iPhone data plan. I did some more research and found a discussion on the Apple forums in which a couple of people got the same information from AT&T. I have scoured the web and have found no reference to this in any of Apple's nor At&T's press releases. I will try to contact AT&T today and see what they say, but it seems like it depends on the rep you talk to. Anyone have any other information on this??

    G4's always 2-3 days behind in the the news. We've known about this since WWDC or shortly after. :)

    everything i've read online states otherwise. until apple or at&t releases something more official, i wouldn't accept any of these reports to be factual.

    I thought it was existing users keep the $20 data plan for the existing iPhone (the first version). And anyone who buys a first generation iPhone will get to use the $20 data plan. I'm pretty sure that if you upgrade to the iPhone 3G you will need to use the new $30 data plan.

    This would make sense.

    That's exactly what every other source has said so far, including the leaked AT&T internal memo. I think Webb got it wrong. It wouldn't make any sense for AT&T to do that...they are subsidizing the phone, they want you to pay the higher (normal) data plan, not the one Apple forced them into just for the 1st gen.
