    Hey.

    I wanted to know, since I'm going to purchase an iphone soon, is the internet connection from AT&T is included in the package monthly payment? or I need to pay-per-minute while I surf?

    Thank you

    When activating the iPhone, you are required to add a data plan. Yes, it is included in the monthly package which starts @ $30.

    Wow, so $39.99 monthly voice package that includes data plan?
    Sounds fair enough.

    No, that $39.99 is the base plan with voice, add about $30 on top of that for a total of $69.99. That doesn't include any text messages, so you would have to add between $5 to $20 for 200 to unlimited text messages.

    I saw a way to go pre-paid, is it more affordable? what's the price range for this?

    Oh there is another thing I forgot to ask.
    Lets assume I purchased the iPhone with the $69.99 plan.

    Am I able to connect the iPhone (via bluetooth / wire) to the macbook and and get it online using the iPhone's data plan?

    Thanks =]

    No iPhones cannot be used for tethering, or using it as a modem for your laptop

    Than the iphone really doesn't worth a penny.
    It's just a shiny toy, not more than that, and that's really bad

    I mean, $70 a month? that's insane, I can get a brand new Mac Pro for $70 a month!

    Then get a Mac Pro.

    $70 is not that bad since it is with a voice plan. It is totally up to you.

    Also, yes it is a shiny toy, but any other phone you get with unlimited internet will cost the same. Except they wont look as sexy as an iphone.

    Once again sacrifice something else and cough up $70/month. You really wont regret it....

    .....I pay $120 just for my line and im only 16...

    But I don't need the unlimited internet, that's the reason, I got WiFi in every hole I go to, that's not fair that I HAVE to purchase the data plan.
    And since it won't tether with my laptop it's even more useless, I still don't understand why make a restriction like that.

    Sounds like the iPhone doesn't fit your needs. Time to move on with your life.
