[/B][B]iPhone to get unlimited data "iPlan?"...
The iPhone will launch this week with a special data plan attached to it, according to high-placed source with access to AT&T. The contacts claim that the provider has decided to create a custom plan for the device, known internally as the "iPlan," that will enable all its features without requiring a premium. Current details reportedly call for a price between $35-45 per month that would offer unlimited Internet access over EDGE as well as a minimum of 2,000 SMS messages. The plan may even grow to include unlimited texting, the source says.
Such a plan would be unique compared to those for other smartphones served by AT&T's network. Its closest equal would be AT&T's PDA Personal Max plan, which is intended for high-end smartphones and typically precludes the use of Wi-Fi without a more expensive plan. Other service options are also more specialized and include plans for BlackBerry messaging or PC data cards.[/B]

How can wifi be limited by your data plan?

Doesn't wifi bypass the EDGE network?

Don't get confused. The data plan that At&t sells is for tethering other wireless devices to your phone so they'll also have internet access. The iPhone could do this, but it's not the same thing as the WIFI capabilities that the iPhone possesses. This is not the data plan that you would need unless you want to tether a laptop to your phone.

$40 for unlimited data and text? I'll take it
