    Hey guys,

    I'm picking up my 8G iPhone tomorrow finally, but I've got a quick question. My current carrier is AT&T, and I plan to just transfer my current number to my iPhone. However, I'm currently in a family plan. Am I correct in thinking that iTunes will just ask me if I want to transfer an existing number, I'll say I'm a current AT&T customer, and then I'll put in the main phone number for the family plan/choose my phone number to transfer/add the $20 data plan.

    Is this correct? My current number isn't the main one on the account, but I don't know why that would matter.

    Yes, that is correct...it is a very easy process and you should have no problems. Enjoy your new iPhone :)

    except you have to pay for separate internet and text messages on the second phone. like, even if you get unlimited messaging on your iPhone, that doesn't cover txts from any other phones. they have a scam for everything!

    You've always had to have a separate data plan per line - at AT&T anyway.

    Some companies, when you apply "unlimited text" to one line, it applies to all lines. I didn't really get it but I guess it works out. It's not that big of a deal with the iPhone, with free e-mail and meebo. Plus unlimited data for $20/mo. is a steal.
