Just found this on BGR. It also looks like Apple and At&t are counting on FedEx to deliver the goods on time.

No, we're not kidding. Although iPlan might simply be used internally to refer to the Apple iPhone data plan, this streak of info came from a pretty high up source of ours, and it looks to be accurate. The iPhone data plan will be around $34.99-$44.99 and feature unlimited data, and either 2000 text messages, or unlimited text messages (we still have not confirmed which, but unlimited text messages would be awesome). For anyone trying to snuff the FedEx driver on his way in to deliver the iPhones, be prepared, because all FedEx drivers are said to be assigned, and delivering to stores in teams. Well, what if we raid the stockroom the night before, we'll end up with a bunch of iPhones right? Wrong. Apple's cleverness was revealed when they announced the 6:00PM release time to make sure stores would have just got shipments, and couldn't sell them earlier. Are we putting all our faith in FedEx? Everything appears so as FedEx will be shipped the iPhones on Tuesday, or Wednesday, and the iPhones will sit in FedEx local sort facilities and hubs until Friday, where they will then be delivered.

thanks it was posted. Unlimited texts sounds good except that everyone on verizon and other carriers HATE you because they gotta pay for their texts you send them.

If we can pull them off the PARIS WATCH then we might get some room on the National News.
Wonder if Paris will get an iPhone as her welcome home gift from mama Hilton..?
It's the least they could do after making a complete balls up of a Network Interview with Babs. (Greed is Ugly)

Larry King voice...
"Mango from Sherman Oaks California, what would you like to say to Paris ?"

We love you Larry..but why...?

We'll see how much of that pans out. BGR hasn't been very reliable so far... release date anyone? Pre-Paid plans?

$35 seems a little high, seeing as you can get unlimited internet for $20 and unlimited texts m2m ($10 - assuming your friends are on AT&T too) for $30 now.

Well that's true. BGR does seem to jump the gun a little. Hopefully we'll know soon enough.

the $20 unlimited internet is only available for WM smartphones with no touchscreen interface. This is because the internet on those phones is difficult to use, so you tend to use it less.

The more accurate comparisons here would be the PDA plans, which are available for phones operating WM5 or 6 Professional. These are touchscreen interface phones, with the most expensive tier of plans for those phones with 3G. I wouldn't expect to see unlimited data and 2000 texts for anything less than $40 right now, right in line with the PDA plans for phones without 3G.
