    I think you can get them under unity. No reason to though as no discount would apply, i think.

    It would save us from having to get a higher minute plan, since everyone we talk to pretty much has an AT&T landline.

    I'm not sure we have any discounts that would apply to the iPhone plan anyway.

    I thought you meant having a discount for having multiple services with ATT under the unity plan.

    Nah, I'm just wondering about the whole Mobile to Landline thing.

    I have 2 iPhone's on my unity plan, AT&T just charges me for the iPhone data plan as the data portion is separate from the voice. The 3G will not be any different, they'll just take off the 2G data plan and put on the 3G plan. Voice will not change.

    It is my understanding that you have to specifically ask for the Unity plan, otherwise you don't get it. Basically, you have to have an AT&T landline and be in one of the 22 states that offers this option. Choosing a Unity plan basically means they combine your landline and cell bills into one, and in return they give you free calling to AT&T landlines.

    More info: http://www.wireless.att.com/learn/why/unity/more-information.jsp

    In the iPhone advertising of AT&T plans, they don't tend to list the Unity plans as options:

    However, if you go here:

    http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/cell-phone-plans/individual-cell-phone-plans.jsp

    you can see the Unity and non-Unity options.

    I haven't yet purchased my iPhone, but I've been told by an AT&T rep that Unity IS an option for iPhone, even though it isn't in the advertising. Don't know yet if that's true or not. It is also my understanding that one can change one's AT&T plan at anytime without extending one's contract; thus, those who already signed up for a non-Unity plan may be able to change. Seems like a good deal to me, with no downside.
