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.

Detailed Plans for Voice, Data and Text Messaging

  • AT&T Nation Unlimited: Includes unlimited Anytime Minutes for $129.99 a month.
  • AT&T Nation 1350: Includes 1350 Anytime Minutes and unlimited Night & Weekend Minutes for $109.99 a month.
  • AT&T Nation 900: Includes 900 Anytime Minutes and unlimited Night & Weekend Minutes for $89.99 a month.

AT&T will offer FamilyTalk plans, with bundled voice and unlimited data, starting as low as $129.99 a month for two iPhone 3G lines. Up to three additional iPhone lines can be added for $39.99 each.

Unlimited text messaging can be added for an additional $20 ($30 for FamilyTalk plans of up to five lines); $15 (1,500 messages), or $5 (200 messages).

In addition to this AT&T will also be offering no-contract-required iPhones at $599 for 8GB and $699 for the 16GB models.

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.

How many of you are going to actually buy the new iPhone or go for a upgrade with a contract? Would you rather buy a no-contract-required iPhone? Let us know through your comments.

    That $$$ makes it Expensive in India…

    Yes, I actually plan on buying the no-contract iPhone, preferable from the US, since the prices are the same there as here in France, only that your prices are in USD, and here they are in Euro. Example: iPod Shuffle $49 – 49 euro. Since 1 USD = 0.69 euro there’s a lot to gain.

    Plus, I don’t even think they’ll sell them without a contract in France, and I don’t want to be tied to a specific phone company.

      Britt I have been having second thoughts on buying the iPhone now and will wait for a no-contract iPhone too.
