    Buy the iPhone for 600 or 700 dollars.

    You have to pay at least 99 dollars because it's subsidized. If you pay the full price, choose whatever you want. At least I think that's how it works.

    I am not sure, but you may have to get the more expensive plan and then call AT&T. Those are iPhone voice plans.

    No, I think it's at least 99 dollars no matter where you order from.

    just order through att so you can get the lower price.

    ATT is offering you 550 minutes while apple is offering you 700 minutes at a minimum.

    You don't have to take $99 plan, on ATT website, their lowest is $59.99 family plan include 2 lines, additional line is $10. I have same option in Apple website, so I guess we can only order in at ATT if we want cheaper plan option.

    one includes data the other doesn't

    I'm guessing that Apple's price includes a data plan maybe? Don't be surprised if the ATT quoted plan is fooling you. I'm on a cheap 450 minutes plan and its something like $69, but then you pay another $30 (or so) for data AND another $9.99 for a second phone AND another$30 (or so) for that second data plan.

    So yes, it's $69 (or $59 - can't remember) but then there's more, whilst I remember seeing Apple advertising that gives you a much more truthful total. Apologies for the approx. prices that I remember from when I signed 2 years ago.

    Nope, theres an option for data after it. This seems absurd on apple website because nothing matches up like it does on at&t

    I was going to respond to your pseudo-English babble you posted before you changed it to what's above. I couldn't understand you the first time.
