    I've fought buying an iPhone since launch because of the monthly bill. I'm currently still on a family plan with Verizon so it's very cheap each month. IF I bit the bullet, I would only get the 450 minutes plus the text package. For those with this current plan on AT&T, how much is your final bill after taxes?

    On my 2G is is $72 after taxes in Washington, so add about $10 more. Although in other states the taxes are lower.

    Wow, higher than expected. I wonder if my employer has any discount program or deals with AT&T now that it's subsidized like any other phone.

    I would consider you paying the ~$299 and her paying the ~$2400 to make you seem a bit spoiled.

    That's kinda like saying that I bought a $1000 car, but my parents pay for my insurance, gasoline, and maintenance , but I'm not privileged or anything.

    edit: My bill is $125.00 after taxes and discounts. It's for two people, so around $60 for each of us. 1 Blackberry for my brother, and my iPhone 3G on the 700Min W/ Unlimited Text and Data for both phones.

    LI here too. Are taxes that different from state to state that bills are varying by 15-20 bucks?

    I have that same plan - 450 minutes and 200 txts on the 3G iPhone.

    My last bill was $79.10 - I do get a small company discount of $7.50. So without it mine would be about $86.80

    That seems more manageable. Does your company just have a deal in place with AT&T allowing you the discount? Also, what state are you in?

    I'm in NY, Dutchess County.

    I went on the AT&T sight where they had a place to enter your work email address. I did and it noted that my company qualified for a discount, so I signed up for it.

    No problem.

    I think others mentioned they also checked with their companies HR or IT departments to see if they qualified.

    Forgot to state that I have the 450 minute plan with unlimited texts (includes taxes and everything else.)

    I kinda do agree with you that I am a bit spoiled, but meant that I'm not a spoiled brat who takes no responsibility for anything and doesn't care about her belongings.....
