    Hey everyone,
    I am new to the forum, but i've been lurking since before the iPhone 4 launch.

    I got my iPhone's on release day (24th) and just got my first bill and all I can say is WOW, the taxes seem outrageous.

    I live in PA and it seems like minus the activation fees and pro-rated charges, I am paying $28.05 in taxes on a family plan for two phones. I have the $70 voice plan, $25 2GB data plan, $15 for 200MB data plan, and $10 for 2 200 messaging add-ons. So total I am paying $120 on the base monthly fee.

    I had a similar plan with T-Mobile that was only $95 on the base monthly fee, but it was only $12 a month in taxes.

    Anyone else think the taxes seem a bit outrageous?

    I do get an employee discount on my plan through my work (I work at Best Buy). Hopefully once that kicks in I will see some kind of noticeable decrease in my bill.
