    I'm almost 100% certain that my parents will buy me an iPhone. My parents and I are currently with T-Mobile and will switch for the iPhone 4G/HD/whatever it's called. But I was browsing around AT&T's site and it seems you need to pay $30 for each iPhone's data plan on a family plan. Basically, if I wanted 3 iPhones in one family plan, then I would have to pay $90 a month for the data plan for all 3. Is this true?

    They are changing the iphone data plans shortly though.
    You will have a choice of a $15 or a $25 data plan for each iphone.
    But either way you will need a data for each phone.
    At least now you have a choice on how much carrier data.

    Yes, it's true.
    But during that time, the $30 plan will not exist for new customers.
    So your max plan for each phone with respect to data will be 3 x $25= $75 in data charges. (Does not include txt messaging!)

    Thanks for the replies! I always had this notion that $30 a month was for the entire plan. This is probably because I never had an iPhone before, so thanks for enlightening me. I guess for some, it's more flexible.

    $30/month total would be awesome. Unfortunately, there is still voice plan fees and other fees and taxes to pay for as well.
