If you browse any site beyond HFBoards, view any youtubes, download any songs....yeah, its not much at all

iPhone 3GS will cost $99. iPhone HD will cost $199/$299

Put that in the "98% postiive" category.

Both of these are prices with contracts, of course.


Based on what I read, people who have the unlimited data plans will be able to keep what they've got... it's mainly just for new customers/new data plan users that these are the two options available.

Either way, 95% of smart phone users use way less than 200MB a month anyway.

edit: yep

- Original iPhone users still on 2G plans are unaffected by the new plan changes, although AT&T has indicated on its Facebook page that those customers will continue to be able to upgrade to the current $30 unlimited data plan even after it is officially discontinued and the new plans are rolled out.
