    I just came from a AT&T store and they had iPhone Plans posted.
    Calling plans start at $59.99 for the same 450 minutes that you get now for $39.99!
    The Data Plans are all Unlimited internet but $20. get you 200 text, $30.get you 1500 text and $40. get unlimited texting. So we are looking at minimum
    $80.00! like I said this comes from a posting inside AT&T store.:eek:

    The data plans for the iPhone 3G start @ $30 which is the same for all AT&T smartphones.

    Yeah, I think you were looking at the old plan
    39.99+20 data= 59.99

    No. You're wrong.

    You're going to have to pay $10 more.

    It's $39.99 for 450 minutes and $30 for unlimited data.

    seems to be incorrect info.

    http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/specials/iPhone.jsp

    See the AT&T press release linked from the above iPhone 3G page. It states that 3G data is now $30/month and voice plans start at $40/month.

    It does not say if that $40/month calling plan still contains 450 minutes but AT&T can't be *that* evil and stupid can they? Does 3G allow me to talk on the phone faster too?

    Last time

    I may sure this was not so. $39. + $20. is what I have now so I made sure to ask. The Flyer said Plans for " New " iPhone 3g. Don't shoot the messenger just passing on what the sale person said. ;)

    The salesperson is wrong. AT&T isn't jacking up the voice plans too -- they'd lose way too much business, as they're already near the top in terms of $$/minutes. Plus, there's no justification for it...nothing about the iPhone requires special voice treatment. It's on the same rate plans as every other smartphone.

    he was probably confused, there is a link on the att website that says different

    and the website should have the most current information,

    sorry to be a jerk, but you have no idea what you're talking about. plans still start at $40, and data is $30..... $70 is the cheapest you're going to get it for.

    Ya I know...
    I was really looking forwards to getting an iPhone in the next few months, but somethings are starting to make me think twice.
    I don't know a lot, but I think the iPhone doesn't have picture messaging?
    I send a lot of texts and my current plan has unlimited, so that thirty dollars is for internet, and then another twenty for the texts? That's insane.
