    At the moment, I fire €10 in every time I run out (every 2 months or so), but when I start back travelling in October it'll cost a lot more. I'm staying on payg until I see what transpires with the iPhone.

    Question to all iPhone owners

    I am going to be returning to the states in January for grad school, anyway, what kind of taxes do you pay on the iPhone? Or is the $59.99 with all taxes included(well, non-state ones anyway....)

    I'm on a pre-paid plan.

    However, around 4 years ago (and using the old CAD --> US conversion rate), I paid around $19 USD per month for 150 Anytime minutes, and unlimited nights (ie: unlimited calling after 8 pm, I think). In fact, I may have had unlimited weekends as well. :)

    Worked well for me, because during high school, most of my calls came at night and on weekends.

    Last month's bill was $116 and change....that's on T-Mobile, for 4 lines sharing 700 minutes, as well as an unlimited data plan, and a few bucks worth of text messages. Not too shabby....we were paying more on suckgular for 3 lines, 800 minutes, and no data plan.

    $30/month ($37 after taxes) for 1000 minutes nights/weekends, 250 minutes peak hours, 500kb/month of GPRS and unlimited text messaging.

    It's decent, but unlimited data is an extra $15/month which is ridiculous.

    $60.00 a month Family talk plan on AT&T (actually $66-67 after all the additional fees they staple on), split $40/20 with a family member (I'm on the primary line). Cheapest family plan they offer. That's 550 Minutes, unlimited M2M, unlimited night/weekend, rollover. I don't use more than half the minutes usually and really wish I could swap unused minutes for the occasional txt message or data transfer. Like they'd ever let you do that. :rolleyes:

    Same plan here. My wife and I never go over either, even when they were the only phones we had. You have to talk A LOT to go over. By the end of the year we usually have 2000+ minutes on rollover.

    Previously w/ Verizon:

    1000 anytime mins.
    NO nights/weekends
    NO mobile to mobile
    250 text messages (+$5)
    $44.98 + taxes/ fees

    Now w/ AT&T (family plan shared between 4 lines):

    700 anytime mins.
    unlimited nights/weekends
    unlimited mobile to mobile
    unlimited data (iPhone +$20)
    unlimited mobile to mobile SMS (+$5)
    $35ish +taxes/ fees


    It's cheaper w/ a ton more benefits for me to now w/ AT&T, but I've experienced pretty awful coverage. :(

    I share a plan with my brother.

    4000 Minutes
    iPhone data ($20 + $30)
    $250/month

    Previously, I was alone on T-Mobile.

    300 Minutes
    Sidekick data
    $50/month

    I don't actually use 4000 minutes, I probably use less than 200 on a normal month, and probably now less because my entire family is now on at&t.
