    So, right now im currently thinking about buying the Iphone 3g. Im currently under a family plan, and i looked on the At&t site and it says under family plan that theres a 40 dollar thing for the family plan. Will it really only be 40 bucks? I heard from a couple of my friends that this is possible. So what would it be 30 dollars for the Dataplan and 10 dollars for the shared minutes. Cause i dont wanna pay 70 a month right now.

    This is what I did i added a line to my family plan with 500 minutes. It costs me personally $30 for the data plan $10 for the addition of a line and $5 for 200 messages per month. $45 dollars a month for me personally, but thats added to what the rest of the family plan was.

    If you already have a family plan, and you are upgrading a line or adding a new line it will only be $40 a month. don't look at those, thats only if you have a new iPhone only plan with 2 iPhones

    If you get a regular AT&T family plan then any line can be what you want (iphone, regular phone, PDA, etc) for $9.99 + feature costs.

    He's referring to the cost of adding a iPhone to a existing family plan (IE the $9.99 add a line + $30 for data)

    I did this. Added a line like a normal family plan ($9.99) then added the $30 iPhone plan (well, $35 because I got some text messages too).

    Did this with the 1st iPhone too, as well as several phones before. The subsidy outweighs the EFT (cancellation fee).

    It's not. The $40 is the cost of adding a iphone to a existing family plan. I assume the OP's parents/spouse/girlfriend whatever pay for a family plan and make him pay for his line + his features.

    Cause you are paying as a family not your self... my whole family plan adds up to about $135 a month. so if you are on your own you pay more, but with a family plan its more but split among eachother.

    They are talking about the EXTRA cost for adding an iPhone to a family plan. The TOTAL costs are more than a single phone plan, but the INDIVIDUAL costs are less - basically because you are paying only $10 for the Voice part of the plan.

    The family plans, iphone and non-iphone, assumes that you will have at least two lines, hence famliy otherwise you go with the individual plan. The $9.99 per additional line on the non-iphone family plan is for lines #3 through #5. The $39.99 per additional line on the iphone family plan is for lines #3 through #5.

    Non-iphone family plan option 700 minutes:
    First two lines = $69.99
    Per additional line (up to 3 more non-iphones) = $9.99 each

    Iphone family plan option 700 miutes:
    First two lines = $129.99
    Per additional line (up to 3 more iphones) = $39.99 each

    If you only want one iphone, you go with the non-iphone family plan and just add $30.00 for the single iphone data plan. $69.99 + $30.00 = $99.99.
