    I am still on my parents family plan with AT&T and we have the unlimited $30 family texting plan included. I was wondering how much will the data cost for an iPhone (I am planning on purchasing one in June, the new one if one comes out, the 3Gs if not). Is the data plan $30 or can I use the unlimited family data plan for $10 or the other data plan which costs $15? Also, what are the chances of a new iPhone in June?

    It's past June. If you're talking about next June 2011, I would bet there will be another one. For the last four years there have been one.

    Data can't be shared. It will cost you an additional $25 for 2GB a month or $20 for 200MB a month. There is no option for unlimited data now.

    Does that help?

    I have the iPhone on a family plan and I spend approx 45 a month.

    10 bucks for the line,
    10 for unlimited texting (30 bucks of unlimited split between three of us)
    25 for 2gb data plan.

    I usually end up using 400-500gb of data a month - and I'm a light user, so I wouldn't recommend the 200mb data plan. But if you're on the family plan like I am, I spend 45ish a month for the iPhone. Hope this helps.

    Your best and most accurate answer will come from the horses mouth. Give AT&T a call they are very helpful.

    Curently I pay about 145 a month but I have two iPhones on my plan

    The minimum it would be, for a single non-family line plan, is $55. $40 for the plan (450 minutes) and $15 for the cheapest data plan. If you on a family line, and you are the main line, the cheapest it would be is $75. If you are an added line (for $10) the cheapest it could be is $25.

    Once you start adding extras - texting, more data, etc - the plans will go up in price.

    In terms of data only, each phone needs its own data plan (no sharing). The plans available are $15 for 200MB, $25 for 2GB, or $45 for 2GB with tethering.

    Don't get me started on charging for tethering on a capped data plan. Easily one of my biggest pet peeves for AT&T EVER!

    One million dollars.




    Actually I <3 my T-Mob account, worlds cheaper than AT&T, and still unlimited data, yes I know it's only EDGE, but I beat the crap out of it. My family plan is $40 for two lines, $15 ulimited texts (whole family plan), $25 unlimited data.
