BREAKING DOWN AT&T’S NEW IPHONE 3G PRICING PLANS
With all of the media related hoopla surrounding the new iPhone’s release ($199 for the 8GB & $299 for the 16GB), we’ve been thinking about possibly switching from our Sprint enabled Blackberry’s to Apple iPhone’s given that the new version will be operating on the 3G network and all. So after going on AT&T’s site in search of pricing plans to compare and finding it all a bit vague, we decided to do a Google search and here’s an excellent pricing breakdown we found courtesy of the folks over at Apple Insider. It succintly compares the costs of the original iPhone to the new 3G one including monthly SMS charges. Click on the chart below for a larger view.
AT&T is also requiring that all current iPhone subscribers pay an additional $18 to upgrade to an iPhone 3G account.
Lastly don’t forget to factor in miscellaneous usage charges, taxes and fees that added on to wireless bills each month. According to Apple Insider, "these charges added nearly $20 in June to an individual AT&T account in New York that was subscribed to the $109/1350 minute iPhone plan."
For now, I think we’ll stick to our Blackberry.
