Do you think at&t and apple deserve a class action lawsuit? Both apple and att advertise this new iphone 3g as "twice as fast, half the price". Flat out lie! to buy the phone you must activate a 24 month contract through att, the old iphone coast an additional $20.00 and included 200 text messages per month.

I don't know about apple. They have no power over the plan at all. On their end, they are selling it for half price. Its ATT that is subsidising the phone for $200 then charging you $360 more for it.
