    I am looking into switching to an iphone soon and I am thinking it might be cheaper for me in the long run. Right now I would just get the 450 minute plan. After taxes and all the little add ons phone companies throw at you what does an average bill come to? Thanks in advance.

    I have the minimum plan ($59), and after state, local, federal taxes it is about $69-$73 (I'm waiting for a suscription service I had to expire).

    I have the minimum plan of 450 anytime minutes, 5000 nights and weekend minutes and I pay $10 extra for 1,500 text messages a month. My bill comes out to between $78 - $84 bucks a month.

    Hope that helps.

    See I don't even have a smart phone and I am paying that much at Verizon. At this rate I can't afford NOT to have an iphone.

    450 minute plan gets me this...

    [​IMG]

    This was my first regular monthly bill after that ghastly first bill, which was $156.02.

    So, i'm assuming my monthly bill will be around $71.

    I'm on the 450min plan and pay around $66 after taxes.

    I have around 1200 rollover minutes to use when I go over ... so helpful :)

    Most of my minutes are night/weekend or mobile to mobile ....

    500 minutes/month 29.99
    Internet 5.99
    Total month 42.00

    Having a T-Mo logo instead of ATT- Priceless

    So I am ahead 30 or so a month over ATT.

    Thats pretty good... T Mobile is the only major cell carrier I haven't tried but AT&T is the one I've been most satisfied with. I think ~$65/mo for an iPhone is a great deal.

    I much prefer AT&T because everything works on the iPhone. You can't use Visual Voicemail on a phone using T Mobile.

    That's right, every month, worth every penny, in fact I have two active AT&T iPhones. Very happy. I'm not paying anymore than I was with Sprint using a Treo 650.

    I'm looking to get myself an iPhone once the second generation one comes out (whenever that may be), and I was curious if it's easy to start with the basic plan and upgrade your number of text messages later? I don't do that much texting now since it is cumbersome on a normal phone without a keyboard, but with the iPhone I could see myself sending more.

    Also, does anyone know if there is a coverage map anywhere for AT&T? I use Sprint currently and don't know how well-covered my area is for AT&T.

    We pay $85 or somewhere around there depending on how much my wife texts. At times, it's about $88, but it's never gone higher.

    We have the 550 mins anytime w/ Rollover (2800 mins)
    The iPhone bolt on is $20, and I switched my line to the secondary line because of our employer discount. I believe it's 15% on service, but it helps!
