    ok, i got my iphone a few days ago and i have using the internet and downloading apps like crazy and then i received this msg;

    Your data charges are very high. to minimize a costly bill & service interruption cal att blah blah blah

    why is that?
    thought data plan would cover that only thing i could think of is that i do not have the data plan but int is a mandatory thing w/ the iphone?

    I think this is just a weird mistake and AT&T should take care of you.

    Technically, you are limited to 5gb a month of data usage from the phone itself. It's advertised as unlimited, but if you read your terms of service it states that activites that cause undue network stress will be considered a violation and will be charged as such.

    That being said, I find it incredibly tough to believe that you would actually be charged for those overages, much less for $700.

    Call the billing department and double check that the iPhone data package is on there. Lately we've been having a problem when we upgrade 3g users to the 3gs, the data plan falls off on it's own. This is more than likely what happened. Call ATT, they'll fix it.
