The speculation is over and the iPhone service plans are on the table. There are three specifically for the iPhone:
• $59.99 for 450 minutes with 5,000 night-and-weekend minutes
• $79.99 for 900 minutes with unlimited night-and-weekend calling
• $99.99 for 1,350 minutes with unlimited night-and-weekend calling
The key here is that all plans include unlimited data for email and Web surfing, the Visual Voicemail you've heard so much about, 200 SMS text messages (only 200?), plus unlimited mobile-to-mobile.
Activation will cost $36, and yes, you will have to sign up for two years of AT&T service.
You'll notice that none are called the iPlan. And none are totally unlimited, although $100 for 1,350 minutes plus free nights and weekends is pretty damn close to my dream plan. Close, but the meter isn't quite tossed out the window.
