I am planning on getting the iPhone 3G for my birthday as a gift to myself :) I am already an AT&T costumer, I have unlimited texting and I know I will have to get internet access on the iPhone, how much monthly will this cost?


And tell me how you like the iPhone so far?

Thanks in advance!

The data plan for the 3G is $30/mo. So you bill would be the voice plan+txt msg.plan+$30 data plan+any taxes.
I have had the V1 and now the 3G. For me,it is the best phone there is. It does have a few shortcomings for some. Such as no MMS or copy/paste, but I still think it is the best.

Thanks for the advice. I see no problem with the no MMS or copy/paste. I am mostly getting it for the internet and texting features, I rarely talk on the phone unless it is a family member that has yet to learn how to text. Any advice on covers? I really like the jellies but do they work?

i think this is the best silicone case out there

i have two of them so far.... the voila (purple) one and crimson (red) one... they don't stretch out as most silicone cases do and they are very attractive... the colors aren't washed out... they are vibrant... i've had mine for a few months now and still no stretch

There is no $30 plan for the iPhone3G (if u circumvent the corresponding data for the iPhone AT&T will ask you to purchase the correct plan, or they may turn off your data which will lead to large expenses.)

This is the plan i have.

450minutes/5000 N&W/unlimited data= $69.99
Unlimited text = $20.00

Add the taxes and the monthly bill would be around $105-$110.

My monthly bill is exactly $105.67 a month.

If your job offers corporate discounts you can lower the cost of the monthly bill.

Nothing about Apple is cheap lolz.

You may want to see if you can maintain an iPhone before you buy one. They arent cheap.

I'm a $9.99 add on line so my total is $9.99 + $30 data for a total of about $40 a month. This of course adds to the voice plan my family uses in addition to the family unlimited texting. i think we are at about $300 a month for service for 5 lines, one of which is an iPhone 3G.

I actually forgot something. AT&T somehow has made a mistake and took OFF my 3G data plan on put on a $20 iPhone data plan. So my data is only $20 a month and AT&T tells me that I am eligible for an upgrade with discount pricing, despite the fact I used it on my 3G.
