    Potentially switching over to AT&T and was interested in how much I can expect to pay. I'm planning on getting a family plan with 1 iphone and 1 regular phone.

    550 minutes ($59.99)
    1500 texts ($15.00)
    Unlimited data for the iphone ($30.00)

    That comes out to $105.00 before taxes and extra fees. Just curious if anyone has a similar plan and can shed any light on how much higher I can expect that bill to be after those additional fees?

    Thanks for the help.

    It'll stay around your same quoted price (+tax) after your first month.

    Depending on your employer, you may get a discount of 10 - 15%.

    However, you have to sign-up with AT&T Premier service to get that discount.

    Taxes and fees will probably be around $20 a month, so $125 a month would be my best guess.

    God damn!!

    My phone plan is $50 per month, and I get 700 daytime minutes, free after 5 pm, caller ID, All calls to rogers and fido are free

    $30 for unlimited data
    $15 for visual voicemail and 2000 txt msg's per month.

    Mind you I'm on Rogers in Vancouver, but you guys are getting fckued on AT&T,
    plus my tethering works fine.

    My at&t 59.99 plan has 900 minutes, not sure why the 550 one would be the same price.

    Edit: my bad, you said a family plan.

    I'm also in Canada, but the unlimited data plan is just 6gb per month.
    Hard to go over unless you torrent stuff while tethering

    I think that is why Rogers allows tethering, if AT&T did the same, everyone would just tether since it really is unlimited

    Thanks for the help, just wanted to make sure I wouldn't be slapped with a lot of extra hidden fees.
