Wow, that's a pleasant surprise. The 450 min. plan is only $20 more than the regular voice plan. Not as painful as I had expected. I'll still hold out for contract discounts and 3G.

Not only that, but they include Unlimited Data. Unlimited Data at Verizon is $45 a month!

Yeah, Cingular always had a good price on data. Their MediaNet unlimited data plan was $20 a month. then a couple/few weeks ago it jumped to $40, which made me think either AT&T was getting greedy or they were pricing up for the iPhone. This disproves the latter, unless it turns out to just be promotional pricing.

Thanks! I'm curious to see what they'll do for 3G pricing, whether it will be more or the same.

wow, i'm pleasantly surprised. those are pretty reasonable rates.

that's only about 2k for that two year contract including the lower iPhone and lowest available plan. doesn't include taxes though

From a G4 400MHz to an Intel Mac Mini to iMac Core Duo to a Macbook Pro 2.6GHz.............gotta love Apple!

Currently they don't charge any differently for 3G with any other device, so they shouldn't do so with the iPhone either.

Wow, the pricing is exactly the same as the current offerings. I pay $60 a month for 450 minutes and unlimited data on my 8525, and that's the same price for the iPhone. This is just great news!!
