  1. Strangely, if they price “unlimited” talk low enough, alot of people will upgrade even if they don’t need it. The end results is that carrier revenues go up, as enough people upgrade that offsets the lower cost to existing users.

  2. So where are the lower priced voice and data packages? What if I want 6 hrs of talk time and can settle for a limited data plan? Since I got my iPhone in July, my total sent and receive data totals less than 1 GB.

  3. Looks like $120 for unlimited everything for one iPhone (texting is not included in the $100 deal (I refuse to write 99 cent prices; in this day and age, is anyone really making a decision on 100 vs. 99.99 ?!)

    @Thelonious, what does ‘not eligible’ mean?

  4. My wife and I never use the minutes we have anyway, so it may as well be unlimited.

    Nearly every one I know has ATT, and those calls don’t count against you.

  5. I have a 1400 minute family plan with me (iphone), my wife (iphone) and her mom. Using about 1000 or mins a month.Then they came out with a-list and have been using about 200/month. Now i have about 8-9000 rollover mins .. too bad you can’t gift them to friends or something ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”raspberry” style=”border:0;” />
