    In the past and current, ATT employees set up the iphone with the media package which cost 20.00. Now the iphone will cost less, about 199, but the iphone will be on the PDA plan, which is 30.00. See http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,365347,00.html

    I think that now it will be hard to get an ATT employee to give Treo owners the media package for 20.00 since the iphone will no longer be using the plan, and they will no longer feel guilty for charging more to Treo owners.

I wish more people would tell carriers to "go fly a kite" when it comes to contracts and switch to prepaid. Now if we can just get them to bring their per minute rates down some. MVNO carriers like PagePlus and Virgin Mobile have per minute rates as low as 5 cents per minute but no reasonable data plans for smartphones.
    It was a good sounding suggestion, but GoPhone, PagePlus, and Virgin Mobile would save virtually no money over a $50/month voice contract for 900 minutes. Disappointing, a total rip off, but it's not like I have a lot of options. Oh, well.
