Now that the release of the iPhone has been slated for June 29th 2007, we can only start to speculate about the new rate plans that AT&T (Cingular) will be offering for the hottest cell phone to ever hit the market. I’d expect AT&T to try to make a killing off of the newest release from Apple, but it looks like their rate plans will be somewhat reasonable:
$39.99 a month for 450 minutes, unlimited mobile to mobile calling, and 5,000 night and weekend minutes. The data plans will start at $4.99 a month for 200 messages OR a $19.99 a month data plan for 200 messages plus unlimited Internet and Visual Voicemail.
Looks like you’ll be spending $60/month minimum in order to get yourself rolling on the iPhone with a sweet data plan and a little bit of calling capability. $20/month for an unlimited data plan would be great… I think that’s currently what people are paying for data usage on the Blackberry.
