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 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.
