Topday AT&T formally announced details regarding the iPhone, including customer eligibility and different pricing plans. The 8GB 3G iPhone will cost $199, and the 16GB iPhone will cost $299. These prices will be available to customers who purchased an iPhone before July 11; to new customers; and to any customer who is eligible for an upgrade discount. Customers who are not eligible for a discount may pay $399 for the 8GB model or $499 for the 16GB model. Either way, a new two-year agreement is required. At some point in the future, AT&T will offer no-contract availability of the 3G iPhone at the full retail price of $599 and $699 price for the 8GB and 16GB models, respectively. The iPhone will require one of four plans, which bundle voice minutes with unlimited data for web and email use. The unlimited minutes and data plan will cost $130 per month, the 1350-minute plan will cost $110, the 900-minute plan will cost $90 and the 450-minute plan will cost $70. Separate family plans are also available. Messaging is not included in any of these plans and must be added separately. $20 buys unlimited messaging, $15 buys 1500 messages, and $5 buys 200 messages per month. As noted previously, any iPhone customer seeking corporate email support will need a $45 business data plan.

come on iphone step it up, so called perfect phone
The camera - there's still no flash and no video recording on the device. I'll add the camera resolution: We're going to see 8 megapixel cell phone cameras in the U.S. this year, and the iPhone is still stuck with a puny 2MP model? Many early rumors also had expected the iPhone 3G to include a forward-facing camera for videoconferencing use. Naturally that didn't happen either.
The battery - Not replaceable. Again. On the other hand, this shouldn't be a surprise con...
WTF I RATHER GO WITH.....
The Instinct with Sprint 30 $$$ Cheaper...
You know how you can tell the iPhone is an undustry changer?
AT&T has it and thats that, get over it! There is NO SUCH THING as a perfect phone! The Nokia N95 has always been considered one of the best all around phones in our industry and even it has its downfalls. Learn to love what you have and what you sell!! You'll make a whole lot more money that way I guarantee it.
THe iphone is ...
And I just sold my iPhone and switched to Verizon.
I was one of those people who fell the Apple hype. I thought hey, I have a Macbook pro so the iPhone can't be that bad....I was wrong.
I had horrible reception at AT&T, and...

I've never seen any device cause so many haters from everyone that doesn't have AT&T! Even Verizon's CEO is getting into the Apple hater mode! So sad! Every time a new post is made on this site about the iPhone there
If I purchase an iPhone today...
this phone sucks, just wait for the Blackberry Thunder from VZW
A Blackberry with a touchscreen is just a blackberry with a touch screen. LG, HTC, and Samsung have all tried and failed to duplicate anything remotely as user friendly as the iPhone's touch interface. So all I am thinking that ...
that is all.
Yeah I read that about the DAre.....LOL
The N95 is the best phone to do everything. Maybe not as slick or touchy feely but it does everything the iphad does and far more.
Separate Fee for Messaging is Lame
I guess I am not buying an iPhone then. Or at least not any time soon.
This nickel and diming is EXACTLY what you'd expect them to do.

I'm mad at AT&T, but will get around the texting fees, and this is how I'll do it. I think if enough people complain,...
If I purchased an iPhone on 9/07 but it's not on my account now?
And still, no corporate discounts on rate plans
I have an iphone in my plan, and I get my discount.
don't make any assumptions..
2G iPhone plans (not handsets)get corp discount on voice only
3G iPhone plans (not handsets)get discount on voice and data plan.
Now I may reconsider this phone...
Stop talking about iphone clones.
just a heads up =)
The things people do for an iphone
BUT if i had to choose a plan and I had a PDA/Blackberry/Smartphone and wanted to take advantage of all its features... Sprints Everything plan blows everything away.
Voice/Turn by turn NAV GPS, Sprint Music, Sprint TV, Unlimited data, Unlimited Blackberry Internet service, oh yeah and TXT/VIDEO MSG is also included.
450 - 70.00
900 - 90.00
Unlimited - 100.00 🙂
I guess thats the price you pay to own an iphone. But im sure apple fans do not mind paying that much. to each is own.
And yeah yeah blah blah.. sprint customer service sucks... sprint is going to collapse...
1) out of the three years i've h...
$599/$699 and LOCKED?
Wow..I'll keep my N95's..Thank You
$70 a month for 450 minutes with Internet and no text? Would that be $120 for a shared line?
Yikes. Im paying $89 a month for 2 shared N95s with UL data on both phones!!
