iPhone plans to start at an actually affordable price of $59.99

Posted by Helper Monkey

Apple and AT&T today announced three reasonably affordable service plans for iPhone, the lowest starting at just $59.99 per month. All three plans include unlimited data, Visual Voicemail, 200 SMS text messages, roll-over minutes and unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling. All iPhone monthly service plans are available for individuals and families and are based on a new two-year service agreement with AT&T. Individual plans are priced at $59.99 for 450 minutes, $79.99 for 900 minutes and $99.99 for 1,350 minutes. All plans include unlimited data (email and web), Visual Voicemail, 200 SMS text messages, roll over minutes and unlimited mobile-to-mobile and a one-time activation fee of $36. Family plans are also available.

Apple also announced that iPhone users will be able to activate their iPhones via iTunes. It had been rumored that iPhone users would need to create an itunes account in order to sync the device.

“Users will be able to activate their new iPhone in the comfort and privacy of their own home or office, without having to wait in a store while their phone is activated,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “There are tens of millions of people in the US who already know how to sync their iPods with iTunes, and syncing their new iPhone with iTunes works the same way.”

“iPhone’s user-driven activation is another example of how AT&T and Apple have partnered to bring innovative new features to our customers,” said Randall Stephenson, chairman and CEO, AT&T. “iPhone’s innovative activation and sync is just one example of how this is going to be a real industry game-changer.”

    What makes getting an iPhone in Canada so pointless, is not he technology of the phone. its how the cell phone companies make having a iPhone just to expensive because data plans here in Canada makes it cheaper just to have a land line phone and pay the 35¢ for the pay phone if you need to get in touch with someone.
