Finally we know what an iPhone plan will cost: rate plans. It ain't cheap (starting at $60), but includes unlimited data traffic (well, email and web). That makes the fact that 3rd-party applications have to be web apps running in Safari a bit more feasible.

There's also a pretty extensive iPhone FAQ at Macintouch.

The rate plans really aren't different from non iPhone rate plans with the data exception. Problem for me is the phone still cost $500+.

Won't there be bundling? Who pays full retail for a phone?

Exactly. As I said in another post in MD, I'm going to wait until August when my contract expires and see if I can get a deal then to renew.

Hello All,

As one of those who will be waiting in line tomorrow, arriving before 6, I will give you my review if I am able to get one.

Are you now a proud innovator? What's the word?

Hello All,

Yes, I am the proud owner of a new IPhone. I stood inline for 4 hours, starting at 3:20 pm on June 29th. It would not have been to bad, but it was a cool and very windy day in Milpitas.

I am very happy with my purchase. It does a few quirks though. Most headphones do not work with it. The headphone jack is recessed. At present, few headphones work with it. It does have bluetooth, but bluetooth only works with bluetooth headphones.

All in all though, it is very slick. The screen is easy to see. It is much easier use the keypad that my old cellphone. And the contacts setup and use is very easy. Web and email works fine. The ATT Edge network can be a bit slow, but it is OK. Wifi connecting is easy and is usually faster, if you can get it.

As for developing programs for it, maybe when I retire in 2 years. My day job just won't give me enough time to do it properly.

Elton

I got to play with one of these for a few minutes on Friday. Sweet!

The screen has amazing clarity, and the on-screen keyboard was much easier to use than I would have thought; even for a fat-fingered sloppy fumbler like me.

I immediately started coming up with rationalizations for getting one, even though I don't really need this type of on-the-go connectivity (I'm either at work plopped in front of a computer, or at home plopped in front of a computer -- sigh).

When I get some free time to devote to exploration at some point inthe future, figuring out how to write Ajax apps for the device could be a good reason to get one -- obviously the browser event model has some unique aspects.

Yeah, I've had several weak moments of "Okay, I'll just get one." But so far, I've held out. Maybe that will change when I actually see one in person.

I hope the rumors of an iPhone Nano later this year pan out. That would probably suit me better.
 
Are you okay? You look a little big. Maybe this tiny ad will help:
