Apple and AT&T Finally Announce iPhone Plans

If you haven’t heard yet, Apple and AT&T have FINALLY announced the phone and data plans that will be available to iPhone users on Friday. And true to Apple form, they have convinced AT&T to offer plans the “Apple Way.” The available plans are:

  • $59.99 for 450 minutes
  • $79.99 for 900 minutes
  • $99.99 for 1,350 minutes

What? $59.99 is a little steep for 450 minutes? I guess I forgot to mention that each plan comes with:

  • Unlimited data
  • Visual voicemail
  • 200 SMS text messages
  • Roll-over minutes
  • Unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling

Now, with data plans like that, I can buy an iPhone. And now that I’m switching carriers I guess it doesn’t matter much, but I sure hope other carriers wake up and smell the iPhone and offer similar simple plans with unlimited data plans built in.
