    I'm still on the fence on this one, but leaning towards passing it up. I wish they still had the EDGE iphones available with the old cheaper plans. Those with the 2.0 software would make me happy.

    AT&T is far from being greedy on the iPhone. Subsidizing the phone plus providing a rapidly growing 3G network they've been working on in preparation for the iPhone.

    Really it does make sense to pay some bit more for faster speeds plus to fund the rapid growth of the AT&T 3G network and to continue to.

    Really $10 more for 3G is peanuts plus the future growth of 3G and beyond.

    I don't see what the big deal is paying $10 extra a month, you spend that on 2 gallons of gas. I do think at&t should offer a edge only plan for the people without 3G access

    I highly doubt they will INSIST that you pay for the 3G plan. You can still pay for the Edge at $20. Furthermore, much cheaper than other carriers!

    Who thinks that 90% of the people complaining about this just don't understand what is going on?

    Who thinks that 90% of the people complaining about this don't understand that all of At&t's other PDA/Smartphone data plans are also $30 a month and don't include any texts?

    Who thinks that 90% of the people complaining about this don't understand that the iPhone has officially changed categories, and has just been bumped up to a new tier of data plan because of it?

    Who thinks that 90% of the people complaining about this don't understand that the $30 charge is not specifically for the 3G speed. All of At&t's PDA/Smartphone plans have been $30 for nothing more than unlimited internet for a quite some time now, and have been REGARDLESS of connection speed.

    Who thinks 90% of the people complaining about this fit into each and every estimation made above?

    There isn't a single 3G BlackBerry currently released on the At&t network, yet I have been paying $30 a month for my EDGE BlackBerry data plan for a long time...

    I think that would make a far better poll personally.

    Which cost $200 more which is, gee, very similar to the price difference for the contract over 2 years.

    I'm not sure how to answer your poll. I'm probably not buying an iPhone because it's too much money each month, but nothing has changed since the EDGE phone. It works out about the same over 2 years. I didn't have that much money yesterday for the EDGE phone and I don't have that much today for the 3G phone.

    So 'yes' to the "too expensive" part, but 'no' to the "do you think it costs too much now" part.
