    I am eligible for upgrade in a few days and I've been thinking about getting an iPhone for a while now. I am a little confused about how the plan works for the phone, though.

    I currently have a FamilyTalk Plan with two lines. I have unlimited messaging which is shared between the two lines for $30. If I upgrade to the iPhone, I understand that the iPhone Data plan is required. Is that also $30? Does the data plan include messaging?

    You have to get the 3G data plan, which does not include messaging for $30 per line.

    if you wanted (and this is what i did), you could get an iPhone 2G on eBay or Craigslist (i did the latter).

    the plan is only 20$/month and that includes 200 texts. i never text, although i do use mail to send SMS - it works fine for me!

    hope this helps
