    For me, I pay:

    450 minutes: $39.99

    Unlimited Data: $29.99

    200 Text Messages: $4.99

    Best Buy Insurance: $14.99

    On top of that, I have taxes. I pay about $100 a month. Is there anyway I can get more minutes/texts and pay less?

    A friend of mine pays $60 a month and gets unlimited texts and 900 minutes.

    Whatever amount I want, pay as you go.

    Say, couldn't you use the search button? Because I saw this same question as a thread a month ago.

    Sorry, I'm new. Does anyone know where I can get a cheaper and better insurance than the Best Buy one? Or will Apple Care give me a new iPhone if I show them my damage one?

    Are you using an iPhone 3G with the AT&T network Pay As You Go? Because I'm interested in this.

    Anyways, I pay exactly $58.99 a month with 300 minutes, unlimited texting, unlimited data.

    How are you paying that? Is that with AT&T? On the site there's no 300 minutes. The lowest is 450. Wth...

    Family plan with iPhone 3G as the primary.

    $49.99 (primary line) + $30 data plan + $30 Texting on all lines -19% FAN discount and then 3 additional lines at 9.99 each.

    Comes out to just under $140 per month.

    We were paying about $85-88 with no fan and 4 lines before (no iphone;no features).

    If I had one then I'd be on prepay at 25c/minute and 5c/MB. My carrier's current network is CDMA2000 but they're launching WCDMA in June so I might be picking one up then if the "Mid 2009" model is half-decent :)

    $15/mo for insurance. Are you serious??

    AppleCare is a $69 one time fee and covers nearly anything except misuse, of course.

    Over your contract, you'll be spending $600 on the insurance. The phone itself doesn't cost that much!
