Apple and AT&T have finally unveiled their three monthly subscription plans for the iPhone:
- $59.99 for 450 minutes
- $79.99 for 900 minutes
- $99.99 for 1350 minutes
These plans all include unlimited data transfer (web and mail), video messaging, 200 SMS messages and unlimited calls between mobile devices. Basically, what this means is that you can pretty much do anything you want with your phone, as long as you do not go over your monthly time limit.
Naturally, subscribers will have to go through iTunes to activate their iPhone plan. They will also have to pay a one-time activation fee of $36.
Now let’s calculate how much an iPhone will cost you over the first year using the 450 minutes plan:
8GB iPhone: $600
Activation fee: $36
Monthly fee: 59.99 X 12: $719.88
And this price doesn’t even include taxes.
Now that you know this dear readers, let me ask you a question: Are you still interested in getting an iPhone?
