    Your insurance (auto) carrier doesn't offer roadside? Also, I wonder if AAA is cheaper.

    And you get 1500 texts WITH your $30 plan? I pay $50 alone for data and texts (unlimited).
    My plan:
    Pretty sure I'm being bent over. That's all I have to say.

    Well I have a 1st gen iPhone too. I stuck my SIM in that one, added the $20 + $10 for 1500 text plan and then put it back in my 3G. I get a text at the beginning of each billing cycle saying I'm using the wrong data plan but that's the extent of AT&T's effort.

    Unless you are getting 7PM nights free (most of the time ATT charges $16.99 for 7pm familyplan). I would suggest you save yourself $16.99 and delete the early 7pm add-on.

    You have way too many rollover minutes (9150 minutes). Just cancel the 7pm, save yourself some money, and when your rollover minutes get low, re-add the 7pm option.

    Orange Switzerland

    3G 16 GB phone CHF249,- inc sim

    CHF 44 per mth gives 1GB surf, 50 SMS, 30 minutes talk, 1000minutes Orange wireless hotspots worldwide and 3 favourite numbers for free calls to either or 3 landlines or other Orange mobile.

    Would be great if they could remember having transferred my numbers from my old phone to my iPhone. Looks like this month will see a CHF20 refund again.

    Oh and Swisscom give me internet access and I get 60mins per month use of their wireless hotspots too.

    Optus (SingTel) Australia:

    AUD$39/month, 500MB data. Paid $220 upfront. We don't do minutes in Australia-land, but it's probably about 100 minutes based on the rates /minute. Joined as part of 'fleet' thing with Optus, means you can call anyone in the 'fleet' for free (family mostly).

    From what I heard, SingTel took a bit of a hit to their profits from that cheap plans they offered with the iPhone (I can't complain though :D).

    $59.49 1,100 minute family plan, unlimited nights & weekends, free mobile to mobile, rollover minutes, etc. (that's discounted about $10.50 due to FAN)
    $9.99 third line
    $9.99 fourth line
    $9.99 fifth line
    $30.00 Unlimited texting for all 5 lines
    $30.00 iPhone data plan for my line

    Works out to $24/month per line for voice & unlimited texting plus the $30 data on one line. Seems fair to me.


    Oh yeah, and throw in the usual truckload of taxes on top of that.

    Hm, i think norway is expensive, im going to buy the new iPhone 3G S, next month, when its comes to norway, but i got abit problem with choosing what plan:/

    1. Netcom iConnect Unlimited Data Plan, $55/month
    and then you have to pay for what you call and sms text.

    2. Netcom iTalk Small with 100 mins call time, 100 sms, and 500 mb/month the price is: $63/month

    I think i will buy iConnect since im going to use the data most, i dont call/sms so much, but i dont know how long 500 mb/month will last, any shouts?

    Edit: Both are 12 month Contract.

    ^^ Check out Chess iTouch...

    Norway:

    * 1 year contract expiring July 10th... with the 3GS coming July 9th... :D
    * Netcom iTalk mini: 100 minutes, 100 SMSs, 500 MB data per month
    * NOK 399,- per month (≈ USD 63 ≈ CAD 70 ≈ € 45 ≈ £ 38 with today's exchange rates).

    When the contract expires I'm free to get another subsidised iPhone from either of the three carriers who offers (so far) or - legally - unlock it and (sell it or) get a plan from another carrier, like OneCall who has a plan that - with my current use - would reduce my bill to at least 1/3 (possibly even down to 1/6) of what I spend today.

    I have a EDGE right now, but for my 3GS it'll be:


    700Minutes (I have no idea how much it is)-
    200 Text for 3GS- $5
    200 Text for Brother's line- $5

    Data plan for 3GS- $30
    Data plan for brother's line- $30
    Additional line (Mom)- $10
    Additional line (dad)- $10


    Is the 700 minutes around $50, because we pay around $157 every billing period....hmm?

    EDIT: Forgot, the $157 is on the $20 iPhone plan that includes 200 texts, so the 700 minutes is around $65?


    EDIT2: Crap, didn't add in my brother's line- $10
    and then, I checked the 700 minutes, and it says $60. So yeah.

    But...that equals $160 before taxes...we pay $157 after taxes. Oh yeah. Fan discount :)
