Haha, it's very tempting, but I just cannot justify spending about $70 a month for it. I rather use that money elsewhere like Tren-D at DTD.

Data plan is $30/month, plus your regular voice plan.

If you want texting, add the $5 for 200 messages plan and get the TextFree app. Textfree allows you to send texts without the text charges. Essentially out going texts are send to your receipient like a regular text. Your incoming texts can be dumped into an email inbox. I set up a Yahoo inbox specially for texting. Yahoo uses push technology which will push emails directly to your phone when they are received. So, when you get a text from someone, textfree will send you an email to your yahoo account, which Yahoo will imediately push to your phone as an email, or in this case a text. All you have to do then is open the TextFree app and carry on your conversation much like you usually would. There is Textfree Lite which give you a 15 message/day limit (to try it out) and there is TextFree unlimited for $5.99 which gives you unlimited messages.

It sound complicated, but its not, and it saves me from paying for a more expensive text plan.

My bill reflects a 16% discount. It is my personal phone, but they give me a discount that is available to my employer.

Yep. DH works for a subsidiary of Wachovia, so he gets an 18% discount.

When I first got my iPhone people couldn't get a discount so I lost what discount I wasn't getting on my AT&T plan. Has that now changed? I'd love to save some money! I have a family plan with 4 lines on it and only one iPhone (mine).

I have a feeling this thread is going to get me in trouble with the DH. He is already saying that he is going to take my iPhone away if I download one more app or song without his permission.
So far my favorite apps are:
Koi pond
Arcade bowl
Bejeweled 2
Lightsaber
Bubblepop
Pockey piano
iBubbleWrap! (DS10's favorite)
Cylon dectect (another of DS's favs)
Whitenoise
Whitenoise storm
WoWRealmS
Chest (a WoW app)
WoWTalent
Characters (a WoW app)
MK, DTD, AK, DHS maps
WDW Dining

DH just asked about it when we signed up w/ AT&T (which is when we got our iPhones, too) and they added the discount to our account. He had to show his company ID. It probably wouldn't hurt to stop by the AT&T store to see if you can use yours.

We have two iPhones and one other phone for the bratty teenager. My discount with my employer (State Farm) is better than DH's discount with our local government. When I signed DD15 up for her line the salesperson asked me where I worked and signed me up for the discount available to me. It is worth asking - every little bit counts!

I emailed AT&T about a discount. Now I know why I don't get a discount (yet).

After reviewing your account, unfortunately there are no discounts
available on 2G iPhones at this time. This offer is only available for
3G iPhones which is a result of a mutual agreement between AT&T and
Apple.


I'm trying to hold out on getting another iPhone until they come out with a new one - whenever that may be. Mine 4gig works great so far.

I know this is a fun and upbeat thread, but I have to say that my iPhone is kinda/sorta pissing me off.

It drops calls all the flippin time. That is my big problem.

Whatever the millions of other things a phone does, the ONE thing a phone should do is allow you to talk to and hear another person. If it fails at that, it just isn't a great phone.

I was all excited about it, but it is very disappointing.

Thanks for allowing me to speak my little piece.

Hmmm, I have the problem on occasion but usually it's because all of a sudden my bars go from 3 to flatline.
