New gen iPhone. Will data raise or add something extra?
The first gen iPhone's data was $20 w/ 200 text.
The current gen is $30 no text.
Do you think the new gen's data will raise? Or add a little something extra?
Let me know what you think in the comments below!

They can't really raise the rate since it's still 3G, but they could if they get the speed bumped from 3.0 to 7.2 or whatever. Although, I usually only get 1.5 so if they charged me more for 7.2 and I only got 3.0 I would be pretty pissed off.

I do not believe that the rates will go up for a couple of reasons:
1) Price competitiveness
2) AT&T will not charge more for txt/mms for the iPhone than they will for other phones they have; that would not be fair to their customers.
Because of these two reasons, I feel that we can sit relatively comfortably with AT&Ts pricing. That is not to say, of course, they AT&T could restructure their pricing at any time.

You will more than likely end up seeing cheaper prices with different iPhone data plans as well as the normal $30 unlimited. At least that would be the smart thing to do and I heard rumblings about that happening. We shall see.

Although, Apple having the upper hand in the relationship could put pressure on ATT to make the iPhone more available. It's possible ATT would do this in exchange for extending their exclusive for another year or 2.

For example, $30 data for a Blackberry Pearl? Data prices (on some devices) need to go down a bit.

As for minutes, I have a big pet peeve about phone calls exceeding a few minutes. I can't stand gabbing. Say what you have to say and end it. I could easily manage a hundred calls per month with only 300 minutes.
