    I'm expecting mine to be $149.99 + $30 + $36(activation) + $36(activation), so about $251. Hell, that's alot!! WTH!

    First Bill

    My first bill was also quite expensive. Its the activation charge that makes it that much worse.

    80.00 for 1400 minutes family plan
    2 more lines 19.98
    Unlimited Family Text 30.00
    2 iPhone lines 60.00
    3 Activation fees - 36+26+26=88.00

    Its was 280 plus tax.. so I believe it came to around 300

    :D I pay that almost every month.....The first bill might be even higher, b/c they charge you for the minutes and data for the current month, and then for the next month. they bill in advance for minutes and whatnot.

    Yes, my first bill for just a single line with the 450 minute plan and the $5 text plan was about $200. They made my bill drop date be a few days before I got the phone, so the first bill was almost 2 months of charges. If you have the 149.99 plan, it could be as much as $300 + the activation fees + the taxes, depending on the dates they use. The first bill could be close to $400. I know AT&T sent me a little warning sample bill a few weeks after I got the phone, with a special warning in red text that the first bill could be unexpectedly high like that, lol.

    My first bill was £47.75 (approx $67.00), which included an extra charge of like £3.85 from when I called my wife when she was in Italy, forgetting that it wasn't covered by my regular minutes...

    First bill

    I knew I'd have the top bill...$2,368.85. That is US dollars, folks. After laughing for a half hour, I called AT&T. The data plan had been put on another line in my family plan. The assistant was very helpful corrected the error and my suicide was averted, but I'm keeping that bill forever.

    You can get better deals with a 1 gig data plan with your own voice plan choosing for 50 bucks. Try talking down that Fido Rep.

    My bill with just my iPhone being on an individual plan costed me about $100 the first bill.

    Oh no, I use all of the iPhone features too, but at a low price, 1 gig data plan only for like 10 bucks a month and the rest is prepaid.
