    Hello!
    I am so sorry if this question has been asked. I am just looking for some quick advise because honestly, all the different plans confuse me. I also feel like the AT&T reps jerk you around!!! I wish I had my beloved cingulair back - they seemed so transparent!
    Anyway!!!

    We currently have a rate plan that includes:
    ONE iphone (husbands) - not this generation but the previous version!
    One smartphone without data plan (GOD I HATE MY TREO! BIGGEST. MISTAKE. EVER!)
    and
    data plan for him
    unlimited texting for both
    and the 1400 minute plan.

    I am eligible for an IPHONE upgrade and want to get the new WHITE 32g model.

    Will we just have to add a data plan? Or is there a better plan for us?

    Also, another question - I know that when hubby got his phone, there was a big deal about going to the ATT store because the APPLE store was charging like 20 bucks more in unneeded fees. Is this still happening? I live near a APPLE store now.

    Since you have no data plan now, you will need to add the iPhone data plan at an additional cost of $30/mo. They also advertise a 1400 minute familytalk iPhone plan for $149.99, but be aware that this does not include any texts. Unlimited texting is $30 more.

    But that base 149.99 would include the data plans for both?


    I thought I saw something come through my ATT bill about two months ago that said you can add a second data plan for 10 bucks a month. Was that a misread on my part? I thought maybe so, because I did come across a few things that said data plans START at 10 bucks a month.
    Thanks!

    I believe additional non-smart phones are $9.99/mo, but I'm not sure.

    The $149.99 FamilyTalk iPhone plan includes 1400 Anytime Minutes, Unlimited Nights & Weekends, Unlimited Mobile to mobile, and Unlimited iPhone Data for two iPhones. Additional iPhone lines are $39.99/mo (up to a total of 5 lines). Unlimited messaging is $30/mo additional for any number of lines (up to a total of 5).

    So to get what you have now on two iPhones would be $179.99/mo plus taxes and fees.
