    Default Who has an iPhone?

    How much does the unlimited data plan add to your monthly bill? I tried calling but they want all kinds of validation info and the acct isnt in my name.

    On AT&T btw.

    Every provider has a ton of fees and taxes. I have 2 phones on my plan, a blackberry pearl with a data plan and a regular cell and it's about $130-140/month.

    Assuming you want a voice/talk plan the cheapest individual plan is 40 bucks and thats without unlimited nights and weekends and only 450 anytime minutes. So theres another 40+ dollars.

    The iPhone data plan doesn't have a text messaging plan built in it so thats another 20 bucks a month if you go with the unlimited.

    And then if you want the GPS or insurance on it or other features that would add up too.

    I'm guessing these are the "fees" that Killuminati was talking about.

    This is also why I don't have an iPhone.

    I already have a plan, this iPhone will be an upgrade. We already have unlimited texts and a shit load of minutes. The data plan will be added on.

    I'm approximately 100% sure that iPhone comes with unlimited texting as part of the data plan just like every other fucking smartphone on the planet.

    Well I have to get something. My current phone started getting black lines in the screen, and now its a huge black bar like half an inch wide.

    And I can get an 8GB refurb for $50.

    Negative.

    Note the separation of the text message plan and data plan while building your package.

    http://www.google.com/search?q=Are+t...hone+data+plan

    This is the "downside" of the iphone and a reason why people believe its huge ripoff. You're paying 30 bucks for hundreds and thousands of MB of data to be transferred while browsing the web, but it doesn't include text messaging which would be a few KB at the biggest for 160 character text message.

    I've had $5 unlimited text messaging since 2001 it doesn't affect me one way or the other, but good work on AT&T's part. Milk the fanboys for all they are worth.

    I mean, granted the other person would also have to have an IM service (if you were going to use AIM, for example), but doesn't everyone have one? My phone is 112 years old and holds 20 text messages total (including outgoing), but even I can text using AIM. Of course, I have unlimited texting myself, but it wouldn't cost the iPhone user a penny - it'd just be data.

    The point is - there are tons of websites that let you send texts to mobile phones for free. It does seem outrageous that you have to pay anything at all to text when you have unlimited data transfer, but hey. Just stick it to the man and go around it, right? Considering how most of us circumvent a point of sale to acquire our media these days, it seems like no big deal to add one more thing to the list.

    The only phone gay enough to not include unlimited texting with unlimited data is the iphone. The real question is why anyone who wants a smartphone buys an iphone.

    well, is any smartphone nearly as flexible with as many third-party applications as the iPhone?

    No not with as many 3rd party applications but you don't need access to 50,000 apps to get everything you need. Iphones can't multi task, they overprice their plan, reject apps based on their own greed, limit customization greatly and spread out standard features over multiple versions of a phone just to milk people for as much as they can. Get an android phone.

    yes, this is probably a good idea, especially considering that it will probably be years until i get a smartphone.

    The nice thing about android phones is that even if you get one with cupcake any updates or newer versions of android they post will most likely work with your phone. G1's were able to upgrade to cupcake with no problem and an entirely new version is just one flash away.
