From AT&T, where?
From employees. I can see you are gonna be one of those that needs written proof everytime. I used to be one of those until I realized not everyone can discuss where they get their facts from.


And I know you don't like BGR please stop with the bashing or we will be right back where we started. There is alot of folks here that hold BG in high regards and are on his staff as writers. One of them is Jibi and I hold him in very very high regard as a knowledgeable BB person

It is a certainty that the cost of supporting a 3G device will increase over that of an EDGE device with respect to throughput. I don't know that I'd necessarily balk at such an increase if I were an iPhone user.

My curiosity is simply when/where/how the details of the available plans were released before the device, and the credibility of said source.

First off, I didn't bash them. Second off, it was my opinion. Frankly I am entitled to my opinion and if it upsets others, then oh well. I try to not offend others, but if I do that is life. BGR is a great site and I respect them and what they do, but they are not perfect and neither is any site. That is my opinion and it will stay that way good sir. If you or others take offense, then frankly you want to start things. I am just talking, nothing more. Lets drop it ok?

I don't' need it in writing or stone, but to say "I got it from Employees" is just not good enough, especially when we all are behind keyboard on a pc/mac/smartphone etc. I don't know you and you don't know me. *shrugs* Anybody can say ANYTHING on the net and fake alot of things. Facts will prevail when rumors only add to confusion.

If I may be the Devil's advocate for a moment.... if we can all keep our comments neutral and generic, we may spare some feelings. "You guys" is not very accurate and will only promote further lashing out. "I" try to do just that, though I'm sure a few "yous guys" slip now and then

iPhone 2 = $200
Data plan increase = $10/mo for 2 years = $240
Total iPhone 2 cost = $440
Steve Jobs marketing schemes = Priceless
