iPhone Service Plan Revisited

iPhone Service Plan Revisited

AT&T; has announced the available service plans for the I-can’t-wait-for-this-thing-to-be-released-so-we-can-all-discuss-something-else iPhone. You can find the details on every Apple-related website, but here’s the run-down as given on Daring Fireball:

$60: 450 minutes, 5000 night and weekend minutes $80: 900 minutes, unlimited nights and weekends $100: 1350 minutes, unlimited nights and weekends

The $60 plan, combined with the $499 iPhone, will ultimately cost you $1,939, exclusive of activation fees and taxes. The entry level for a family package starts at $80 per month with an added kick of $30 per additional iPhone. Assuming a family of two (2), that brings the total cost to $3,638 (again, excluding activation fees and taxes). This is close to the costs I estimated back in January, minus the $30 charge per extra iPhone. I hope I’m wrong about the $30 per additional iPhone and that it’s a one-time rather than monthly charge.

Update: That $30 (technically $29.99) per iPhone is monthly, so the $3,638 is accurate.
