Ka-ching! This part would peeve me off..are they saying w/o AT&T you cannot use the iPod feature?! So muc for unlocked iPhones (software lock it seems, or tied in to the SIM)
"Minimum new 2-year wireless service plan and activation fee required to activate iPhone features, including iPod; plans are subject to AT&T credit approval."

Anyway I guess once more we'll be partioned into the haves and have-nots whether we want it o not lol! I doubt that offering the iPhones w/o visual voicemail for $700 and $800 would've hurt Apple and they certainly would've sold more than the millions they're projecting (ppl buy P900 fo the sme rpice all the time).
I still think Apple should've never started this locked in to ANY network..but I think the control freak side of Jobs menat he wanted as much powerover the device as anything and ATT wer te ones willing to make the deal.

You can get Sprint Treo WX plan, unlimited data (3G) and equivalent minutes for $30-40 a month; if you have more than one phone, it gets even cheaper.
I think the bigger point is that with the iPhone, price is no object. People will pay whatever is shown to them.

I'm surprised at these rates. The voice plan part is identical to all current voice plans. And the data plan portion is identical pricing to Media Max, the cheapest category of data plans.
Add on for current users:
iPhone 200 $20 = Media Max 200 ($20
iPhone 1500 $30 = Media Max 1500 ($30)
iPhone unlimited $40 = Media Max Unlimited ($40)
Just add those to the standard $40 and $60 voice plans and you have your packages.
Nice. I was convinced they were going to go with PDA data pricing.

If BUSINESS phones are 40/month for data, why 20 for the iPhone? Must be one of two reasons:
-Looking at this as a CONSUMER device, not a BUSINESS device
-No 3G, makes that pill a little easier to swallow.
I guess number two, since that is the biggest gripe people have w/the phone

- AT&T is not subsidizing the phone, so they have no costs to recoup in data plans. Much better dealings. I for one am actually able to acknowledge and thank Apple for this new methodology.
Anyway, this correct option is the one I stated back in late February or early March I believe. Remember?
