you guys are trippin.......

Ok. everyone needs to calm down. I am most likely sure that it will be $19.99. I am here sitting looking at the data plans with cingular/att on the website and this is what it states.

Plan Name Monthly Cost Included Data
SmartPhone Connect Unlimited w/Xpress Mail $19.99 Unlimited View Details



I also have a Treo 650 with them and pay $19.99 for the unlimited internet data. I just don't see why you characters are all worried. The att reps are full of crap.

My text (450) and data (1mb) is 9.99 a month. I could definatly do the 19.99 data plan.

$40 is a typical price for data plans and is actually $5 cheaper then I am paying now... This really shouldn't be a huge issue if you already run with a PDA phone.... However if you don't, get ready for the $100 a month cell phone bill....

I agree. I expect to see a bit lower of a price available for iPhone data plans, but a $40 plan wouldn't surprise me or scare me away from the iPhone.

Less then 10 txt msgs/month?

Karnak says: You're over 35 years old and/or married....

on a dif thread, some guy said it was 2 plans -text and data in 1 price ($39..). maybe we will have the option for no text msging. i text less than 10 msgs per mo IF THAT! so it sucks for me. if i do have to pay it, i will. i was expecting $40 data (looking at cing. current rates for unlimited) anyway. if i have 1500 text msgs per mo....i wonder if they roll over? hehehe by the end of the yr i'll have over 17,000 left.:p

Son of a BLEEP BLEEP. They are BLEEP stupid for doing dat. Dat means the monthly is gonna be like $150+ for me because hav to pay for the lady too. BLEEP!
Yup. I'm in the same boat. Ain't gonna happen. If that's the case, I'll get my wife one on the 29th, and I'll just use my old cell and borrow hers as often as I can! Then I'll consider buying an iPhone 2.0 in 2008 when, hopefully, ATT sees how ridiculous $80/mo is for data in one household, and lowers the price.

I'm really torn about this. $40 is pretty steep, IMO. Especially since I can't imagine needing to use the data plan. I'm in wi-fi hotspots all the time, have wireless in my home and really, I won't be using the online functions all that much. Then again, once I have the capacity to do it I'll probably become an addict.

I suppose now that The Sopranos is over I can cancel my HBO and make up for it. Ha.

Every time I call AT&T, they tell me that information hasn't been released yet. Hopefully what ppl are being told is just speculation or guessing.

I think i would pay 40 but it better have unlimited texts as well as data. I would also need to drop my existing text package.

I am ok with $40. I currently pay $30 for my Blackberry plan, so it is not that big of a deal

for you slipperypete
it might not be much. you are going to compare that $10 more a month is $120 a year,$240 for the two years or contract's end, unless an upgrade is requested, and the contract is extended. (not including the taxes incurred from your final bill each month, added into the total for the year's total) taxes would aprrox. be 15% so that means $240(15%)=$36

$$$$276 for internet only in a difference of your blackberry's.



for those who don't have a clue as to what it should be roughly.
lets find the total price for internet for the iPhone according to the rumor..


$40 for a year= $480
2 years (contract's lifeterm) = $960
taxes for the two years= approx 15%
$960(15%)= $144
total for internet only? = $1104


nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
the phone bill? perhaps 1.5 that amount.
if you get a decent one. ($60 approx)
1yr $60= $720
2yr = $1440
tax (15%)= $216
total= $1656


phone+internet+tax= $2760 approx for two years

don't unlimited texts and the great activation fee.
and asurion insurance ;] a must have. [and tax on that too.]

Well the AT&T stores here will have a 3 hour meeting on the 26th that will cover all unanswered package questions.

I will hold my breathe until then.
