AT&T and Verizon iPhone plans compared

well ... at least me, for one
If I'm going to text, I'll just send an email.
I've never caught on to "texting" - I don't get it personally (just me - I have nothing against it - I'd just rather phone or email depending on urgency, etc.)
Just about the only texts I was getting were spams and they'd end up costing me, which I thought was ridiculous.
So, I turned off texting and saved the five per month.

They couldn't tell me what existing customers would pay for the iPhones since (and I quote) "we don't yet sell the iPhone." I explained that I would want to continue using my DSL, internet, and email service and that should qualify me for some type of discount on the monthly "data package" but they could not give me any information.

It's not really comparable in most cases since CDMA, what Verizon uses, is not nearly as supported internationally as GSM is, which AT&T uses.

I would hazard that unless it says that plan is "for the iPhone" you'll be told it's not.

I agree that considering rollover minutes is an important factor. It regularly pays for my vacation overuse.

Out of the 720 average hours per month
Usually, you'll be (in average):
Sleeping 240 hours
Commuting 45 hours
Eating 30 hours
Visiting the WC 5 hours
Working 240 hours
More or less you'll have 560 hours accumulated, which gives you 160 hours per month or basically close to 5 hours per day that we could use for ourselves, visit friends, family.
And according to these plans, give you an average of 2-3 hours per day of talking on the phone, sending Text Messages and consuming data online. Plus the average of 1-2 hours of daily TV consumption.
We deduct that on average Americans spend 0-1 hour per day of 'live' social life.

Do either AT&T or Verizon sell the iPhone 4 without a contract?
