I mean, how many people did he trick. I new it was an amazing price, but I figured it was a deal with AT&T they worked out. Only now, 20 something days later, after all the publicity they got over that new low price, we finally get confirmation that twice the speed and half the price is not so true. And worse, now they are forcing people to get the data plan! Which is more expensive. That will pretty much kill the deal even for people that are eligible to get the $199 price. As I bet many only wanted to do Wifi, especially if only in an Edge area. Or you get it, but find out a few months later you hardly use the data plan, but you are stuck with it. So much for it being affordable for everyone. It's less affordable than ever with a minimum $70 per month 2 year contract. Before it was a near wash for those wanting data, the extra $10 a month and the new low price. But now many of us ineligible will be paying full price like before, but this round an extra $240 over 2 years thanks to the $10 increase, or again, even more if you never wanted a data plan. Seems like a horrible thing to force on everyone when the device has wifi and so many hotspots around. What's the next step, forced text plans? EDIT: Just to clarify one thing. I'm no upset about the 3G data price, it's the same as any smart phone. But no other smart phone forces you to choose a data plan. This is a real problem for those not even in a 3G area and planned to live with only wifi, but now ATT will force them to pay $30 more a month for something nearly useless. Kind of an odd indecision with as much as people are cutting back due to gas and food prices. Also, no way could Steve of had all that info, but they make the iPhone, and they claimed that as the price, and not one hint of it having to do with qualification with your carrier.
