Iam interested in getting the new 3g apple iphone on july 11th. I will be a new at&t customer and I’am wondering how much per month I will have to pay for just the minium amount of minutes, which I believe is 450 minutes for $39.99, and the data plan for the iphone to work. Any info will be helpful. Thanks!
I read that AT&T is no longer going to treat the iPhone as if it were special. Thus, no more special plans.
If the plan you want is $39.99, then you also have to add-on the data plan. AT&T’s data plan for the iPhone is the data plan for all PDAs/smartphones, which is $30.00 per month. If you want texting, you will have to get that package as well. Two-hundred text messages are $5.00 a month, 1,500 text messages are $15.00 a month, and unlimited text messages are $20.00 a month.
Your subtotal will probably come out to be $74.99-$89.99 a month. You have to add-on taxes and other stuff that may be charged monthly to you (probably about $10.00-$15.00 a month). Your total for the month can be around $84.99-$104.99.
You also have to remember that you will pay an activation fee, a security deposit if you have bad or no credit, and a reconnection fee if you fail to pay your bill and your service is disrupted.
In all, I wish you luck!
