Ok, so last week I was guilty of spreading a little FUD after talking to an AT&T rep. I apologize. I’m very, VERY glad to have been wrong. Apple and AT&T announced the pricing plans for the iPhone today, and they are both fair and awesome at the same time.
I have to say I am officially beyond sold. I’m going to be moving from a crappy two year old flip phone with only the basic data plan and txting, to the iPhone with the (mostly..still no flash..argh) “real Internet” and my bill is going to go up $5 bucks a month.
Here’s how my standard bill plays out now:
$39.99 (for 450 minutes) + $9.99 (for 5mb of basic Internet) + $4.99 (200 txt messages a month) = $54.97
So, the same plan for the iPhone, but with UNLIMITED Internet and email is only going to cost me $59.99
You can break it down all the way up the scale, adding $20 to move up to 900 minutes and so on, and what it breaks down to is your unlimited Internet and email is actually costing around $15 bucks a month, and your 200 text messages about $5.
That’s a helluva deal. Very competitive, in my opinion.
What do you think? Did this put it over the top for you, or are you unhappy?
