    If I want to buy a new iPhone what are my total costs going to be? Phone cost of course but what else?

    Specs:
    IPhone
    $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.

    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.

    Data and unlimited texting is only an additional $40/month.
