    The current least expensive plan for iPhone is $40 voice + $30 data = $70/mo

    Now with $99 iPhone, shouldn't AT&T offer something like $30 voice + $20 data = $50/mo plan?

    $30 for 300 min and $20 for limited data


    I know AT&T may be more likely to maximize their profit just as is, but I'd like to see a $50 monthly plan. Anyone else?

    I feel the EXACT same way! I was hesitating to leave my family plan because the plans were soo expensive. But thanks to Macrumors and my love for reading and researching, I found out that my school has a FAN account with AT&T!! ...So now I will be receiving 20% off of my phone bill

    They won't, but I agree. To me, the price of the phone isn't the problem, it's the price of the service. I'm fine spending $300 on a phone, but it sucks to have to pay a minimum of $89.99 a month.

    they should make it $20, $30 for data and I barley used 1 gig a month on a phone where the battery sucks

    I think they would get a lot more customers with it at $20

    or at least give us unlimited txting or some kind of txting with the $30

    When I purchased my first cell phone back in '98, the cheapest plan AT&T had was $99+tax for 500 mins a month. Prices have come down somewhat but I also believe that the data plan should go back to $20/mnth.

    So if someone can't afford one, don't get one. AT&T isn't losing sleep at night.

    It would be nice, but I don't see them doing that.
