iPhones kick ass. I just wish I could convince myself that they kick ass enough to drop the $$$ for the plan they come with. Full disclosure: I have a $20 per month cell phone plan through my work that Verizon is going to let me renew indefinitely as long as I keep upgrading my phone. I upgraded to a new 2MP camera phone for $20 about a month ago.
Well, my current plan is $39.99 a month plus $15 for unlimited texting. I actually don't think I am going to add the data plan because I will be at school or home 95% of the day where I will have free wireless internet access. Anyone know if you HAVE to get the data plan? If so, I might rethink buying it because I'm not up for an extra $30 on top of the $55...
I just looked at my account online to see if there was any way to cheapen my bill. Looking at the plans, I found this ominous little gem from AT&T about the iPhone data plan:
AT&T Overlords wrote:Please note: AT&T is Apple's exclusive carrier partner for iPhone in the United States. An eligible data plan for iPhone is required. This data plan covers data usage in the United States and does not cover international data usage and charges. If AT&T determines that you are using an iPhone on your account without an eligible data plan, AT&T reserves the right to add an eligible data plan to your account and bill you the appropriate monthly fee.
