Oh Boy! Apple and AT&T (Cingular) publicize iPhone Data plan prices

Apple and Cingular came out with a press release early this morning with the iPhone data plan prices. All I can say is WOW that’s cheap!

Briefly, here’s the breakdown.

  • $60/month for 450 minutes, unlimited data, 200 text messages
  • $80/month for 80 minutes, all the rest as above.
  • $100/month for 135o minutes, all the rest as above
  • a family plan for $80/month

Man! Now I really want an iPhone! For minutes plus data on Verizon Wireless, who I have now as my carrier, it would be $80 for me alone – not counting my wife’s phone! Verizon is such a rip off and Cingular is raising the bar in terms of expectations on data plan prices.

I’m excited for anyone who takes advantage of this mobile data package.

Hello Verizon Wireless are you listening!? Probably not.

Here is more detail

    I am all over this! The one thing that is lame is the family plan is for one phone, which is great for all those one person families out there (um, what). It cost an additional $29 for the second phone.

    However, I guess that this is not too bad. My current family plan includes 2 phones and shares 800 minutes, no data, and no text messages for $70 before taxes. So with the iphones I could get the 1 person family plan with extra line and 700 minutes, with unlimited data, and 200 text messages for $110, an increase of $40 bucks per month or $480 per year.

    To have more Apple in my life I am sure there is something else I can trade out to make up for the cost difference.

    Now it all makes sense why the iphone is not 3G.
