how will the new data plans affect the new iphone

from what I can tell attws is going to screw the enduser now that the new iphone is coming out.

especially with video chat now a 2gb cap is going to hurt it bad.

i wonder if attws is doing this to get back at apple, since it seems the plans are vindictive agaianst apple users

Well anyone who's smart will unlock it and use it on Tmobile, I agree ATT is just not the right network for this thing.

Re: how will the new data plans affect the new iphone

ATT charges thru the roof. $40 minutes plan + $30 data plan with a new data cap I think 2 gigs or something, that doesn't include any texting or anything.

Tmobile no contract price is unlimted text, unlimited data, 500 any time minutes (free if you call anyone on tmobile) for $59.99 a month, can't beat it.

Re: how will the new data plans affect the new iphone

The data cap won't have any effect on video conferencing because Apple already stated that this would be capable over WiFi ONLY. In AT&T's reports, 95% of users are below 2Gb/month and 60% are below 200Mb/month. The way I see it, this will actually save most AT&T customers money while screwing those that use more than 2Gb/month.

On another note, the new iPhone looks pretty sweet. I am not a huge fan of the OS overall and wouldn't buy another one, but damn is the hardware nice.

Its not much different nor much more feature rich then 3.1.X. Sure, multitasking will work better than the jailbroken versions, but its still the same OS at the base which I am not crazy about.... It's a great phone, and an idiot proof OS, but just not for me. I did give it a go though.

On another note, I am amazed by how small a 3.5 in screen looks and feels after just 3 days with the EVO. I don't think I could go back to a smaller screen
