iPhones will go on sale at all Apple Stores and AT&T stores at 8AM local time on July 11th.
The initial prices are as expected with a $10 increase in data plans which means that the minimum you will have to shell out will be $69.99. The monthly plans will not include free SMS, you will have to shell out $5 for 200 messages and $20 if you want to make use of unlimited messages.

Well that more than gives you a pretty good idea of how much you will be spending with your 2 year contract with ATT and a option to go for a non-contract model.
