    I was just wondering how much I should actually expect to spend at AT&t when I upgrade from my old iphone. Is it just the 199 plus 11 for the upgrade?

    Are you talking about buying the phone, or the services? I paid $299 + tax, which brought it to $324 in CA. All the rest will be on my first bill. I'm a new customer, though, so I'm not sure if it's different for you.

    Holy Crap!
    You're actually going to get a 3G?
    It cost about $130 a month to get a decent plan.
    So it's way more than you think.
    If you're in the us it would be $199 plus then every month the amount for the plan you get.

    I spent $299 = 16GB 3G Black, $26.16 = Tax, AppleCare = $69, Activation Fee = $18 (Charged to Bill/waived by AT&T next billing cycle) and $10 more per month for Data Plan (also charged to bill). Total was $394.16 OTD. Total was $325.16 w/o AppleCare OTD.

    LOL...it all depends on what your definition of a "decent plan" is...

    I pay $70..about $80 with taxes per month. Considering how much I actually use my phone for calling people...the 450 minute plan is plenty...I mostly use data.

    My phone was about $550 ($499 phone + $18 upgrade fee) after taxes (IL sales tax is 6.25% I think). Net cost to me was all of my Christmas gifts this year.

    Actually you're WRONG. A lot of people worked in companies or studying in colleges that has some sort of deal with AT&T hence able to receive FAN discount (myself included). With the FAN discount, I actually pay the same or cheaper VS the 2g iPhone plan (2G iPhones are ineligible for FAN discount)

    450 Minutes Plan = $56 + $5 for sms + fees after discount VS $59.99 + fees for 2G iPhone ~~ Difference of $1 per month lol
    900 Minutes Plan = $72 + $5 for sms + fees after discount VS $79.99 + fees for 2G iPhone ~~ Cheaper actually
    1350 Minutes Plan = $88 + $5 for sms + fees after discount VS $99.99 + fees for 2G iPhone ~~ Again, CHEAPER!!! With this, you can even add the $8.99 1500 SMS plan with TMS4 code and you basically get 7x more SMS than regular 2G plan for the same price.

    This is actually the main reason why I am getting the 3G iPhone :)

    Well, that's a fan discount.
    I need at least 1000 minutes and I text all the time so i would get the plan with 1350minutes for $110 and extra sms for $20.
    That's without a fan discount.
