    So my contract for my Sidekick is ending, and I'm thinking of getting an iPhone. The plan I have right now on my Sidekick is a data plan where I have unlimited internet use, texting, AIM acess, etc. I don't even have a phone plan, I rarely talk on the phone, mostly texting, so I just pay $.20 a minute. Is there a plan like this for iPhones? Any tips for newbies? Thank you.

    You'd have to check the AT&T site for different rates, but it sounds like they'll be more than what you have. The iPhone is worth it though. ;)

    At&t has a FAQ page set up for the iPhone, located here:

    The cheapest plan for the iPhone is $69.99 for 450 minutes (no texting included). To add unlimited texting, it's another $20 per month.

    Is the iPhone worth the increased cost? I think it is.

    Why don't you use your iPhone on T-Mobile? You can use a similar plan with the Tzones internet and unlimited texting. I use my iPhone 3G on T-mobile. I love it.

    Thanks for the responses. I wasn't aware I could use an iPhone with T-mobile?

    Thats because he forgot to mention that you would have to jailbreak the phone before you can use it on t-mobile :D

    Yes you would. Or if it is the 3g iPhone you can insert a Gevey 3G sim card or something similar. With the card you don't even have to jailbreak, but your service will be less reliable. If you buy the 1st gen iPhone you can run quickpwn or pwnagetool and easy unlock it that way. :D
