They haven’t been released yet. The phone itself will cost $199 (8GB) and $299 (16GB).

How much will it really cost me over 2 years?. That depends on how many minutes you use and how many text messages you want to sign up for, but at AT&T’s lowest plan price of $39 a month for 450 minutes, plus a mandatory $30 data charge and $5 for 200 text messages, you’re looking at $1975 over the course of two years. Before tax and other fees. Here’s how it stacks up against the old iPhone and against other 3G smartphones on Verizon and Sprint.

Well does that $39 include the Existing AT&T customers plan?

It’s the same talk plans as before (starting at $39.95), but the unlimited wireless data plan has increased from $20 p/m to $30 p/m.

I imagine this has to do with AT&T expecting people to use more bandwidth with the 3G phones.

So you’re looking at, at least $70 p/m + taxes and fees ($80-ish?).

The data plan didn’t change from $20 to $30, there is just a new data plan that is 3G and costs $30. Anybody with a 2G iPhone can still use the $20 data plan.

but you most likely won’t be able to get away with paying 2G rates on the 3G phone; in the end you’re going to be spending well over $1,000 a year to keep the iphone 3G.

I found a place that will be selling the 3G iPhones unlocked (can’t find the source, I think it was a european store though), either way just to give everyone an idea, the real price of the new iPhone is $699 and $799; rather than what the Apple spread around with the 2 year AT&T contract of $199 and $299

it isn’t cheap.
