I'm hoping there will be some options for iPhone data rate plans. Currently AT&T has specific plans for blackberry but most other smartphone/pda plans vary from $9.99 to $44.99.
I've read the rumors on a $30 data plan for iPhone but that starts making it pretty expensive for a 2 year contract. If they are going to limit the data plan options I hope they'll at least offer a rebate like they do with most other smartphone/data plan bundles.

I'm quite certain it will have its own rateplan, they're outfitting stores with wifi for the launch, they'll probably have a dedicated data plan, but I bet it'll be compatible with mediamax like the Blackjack and 8525. probably 19.99 no text slightly higher that a smartphone max if it doesn't have its own it'll be 19.99 with 1500 texts like the smartphone max

I'm curious about this myself. I already have a PDA data plan that came with my Samsung Blackjack and if they come up with a cheaper plan for the iphone I may try to switch to that plan.

I've heard rumors of a $40/mo + data plan. I hope the rumors are not true, that's double what I pay now for unlimited data

Hmm. An EiP user received this email from AT&T:
..."You will need a data rate plan. At launch we will have more
information on the compatible plans for the iPhone as well as
accessories that will be sold separately. At this time We would
recommend that you visit us online at

honestly I don't see the point to any plan besides unlimited
06-09-2007, 02:51 PM #15
Yah, true. And it IS going to be a very "connected" device. So unlimited makes the most sense.

go like 6mb over on their plans and its like $400
unlimited $40 hmmm 1/10 the price

Wow, $400 for 6MB overage... is that true? I don't have any data plan (or any need for one) currently. I guess unlimited would be the only way to be sure you could actually 'use' the phone at any given time when away from WiFi if the data is so integrated into iPhone's operation.
