$36 activation fee
minimum of $59.99 a month for 24 months

So assuming you don't go over your limit and incur charges there for extra calls, texts, etc, you're looking at around $2075 for an 8 gig and $100 less for the 4 gig.

With taxes etc it might end up being a little higher but that's the ballpark.

Activation: $36

First month: ~$65 for a 450 min. plan plus taxes and fees

Total: ~$624.95 - 729.95 for the first month, ~$65 thereafter

Data is unlimited, texting is 200 messages per month inclusive.

You should really check out Apple's or AT&T's site.

All of this is spelled out.

email and web are included in the $20 per month data plan which is part of the total bill. For example, the cheapeast plan is $59.99 which is $39.99 for the phone and $20 for the unlimited data plan.

Ok thanks. I'm in the market for a new phone, have been for a while. I'm ok with the iPhone price tag plus activation. I was worried that the data would be extra but since it is unlimited I'd say that $59.99 for the cheap plan is fair. Thats more than I would ever need.
