    Sprint, 450 mins, unlimited text, unlimited data = $80

    You do realize what he posted is what was noted on MacWorld?

    I seriously don't get why everyone is SO hostile against Sprint!

    I'm actually going to go through all three carries to see what an individual line with the least and most data costs. Unlimited text is a requirement too.

    I don't have anything against any of them - which is why I went through the process at all three of them. I don't use texting, so I pay per text.

    Since I'm a current subscriber at AT&T, I did not go through their sign up process as a new subscriber - because I wanted to know what my price would be, not someone else's.

    Actually went through Sprint's sign up again this morning - looks like they fixed their plan option page since Saturday morning. At that time there was only a single option. The $70 option is back - and then requires a $10 "Premium Data" add-on to bring it to $80.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    Since I don't trust online websites to show accurate prices, I actually called Sprint to see what my monthly bill would be if I went with the base minutes package. Total price is based off of what I currently have from ATT, and what I would look for in the next plan.

    Here's what it comes up to from Sprint on a single iPhone plan:
    Monthly price- $79.99($86.19 after tax)
    Include 450 minutes,
    Unlimited text
    Unlimited Data

    Note, I don't talk a lot on the phone, and rarely ever go past 300 minutes a month.

    I will do the rest when I get back from a visit.

    It's always best to call or visit with the carrier to find out what the pricing will be rather than sign up on line.

    I wasn't disputing that. He accused us of lying about their prices when all we did was to provide the link which showed them. Not good etiquette.

    Oh, sorry, I though you were since you posted the link again.


    Just got off the phone with ATT.
    This is how I would have to setup a new iPhone contract with them:
    $104.99 a month($113.16 after tax).
    Again, this is keeping a level playing field of what I currently have on my plan, and is based on the ONLY way I would sign a new 2 year contract.
    Includes:
    450 minutes
    4gb data
    Unlimited text

    Coming up, Verizon!

    Here's the Verizon deal:
    $109.99 per month($118.51 after tax)
    Includes:
    -450 minutes
    -4gb data+ Mobile Hotspot(Apparently, there's no data plan for JUST data, it's bundled with either personal email, or mobile hotspot. So, you could get 5gb's of data + personal email, or you can get 4gb's of data with mobile hotspot, either for the same price.)
    -Unlimited text.

    Here's my conclusion:

    If you want an iPhone and actually use it, Sprint has the best deal.
    If you want an iPhone so you can say you have an iPhone, Att has the lowest price(, 450 minutes, 200mb of data, and no text) at around $60 for pretty much nothing but email abilities and talk time.

    Sprint only has unlimited for texts, while Verizon goes down to 2gb for $30, and Att goes down to $15 for 200mb's to help people in debates of which is cheaper.

    Sprint has the most expensive up-front talking plan, but it also includes texting, and free mobile-to-any mobile talking. This is only $10 more than the next closest from Verizon's $59.99, which also includes texting.


    To me, it's pretty clear. If I had an individual plan, and was looking for a new contract to full utilize the capabilities of my iPhone, I would go to Sprint. However, I'm on a 4-phone family plan. Sprint is an expensive alternative for family plans, as is Verizon. Att is clearly the cheapest in this category.

    Yep, it pays to shop around. Actually, none of the carriers are giving us a great deal though. AT&T works best for me because they also give a 15% discount to certain groups and union members.
