The lowest nation price plan for ATT is 39.99 for 450 rollover minutes/5,000 knights and weekends/ and unlimited mobile to mobile. The data plan is 30.00/ and text messaging is 200 messages for 5.00, 1,500 for 15.00 and unlimited for 20.

So if you hade the 39.99 plan plus unlimited testing and the data plan you would be looking at 89.99 for your monthly service charges not including taxes.

you cannot buy it without a contract. and you can't buy a go phone just to get the sim card. you cannot open the iphone there is no sim card that you can take in and out.

I do believe you could use it as a prepaid but only with the ATT Go Phone service. You would probably have to buy one of the $10 cheap Go Phones to get started and get a Sim card. I know the Go Phones work with the Full ATT Plan b/c that's what I have done for my mother and mother-in-law because they wanted simple phones. I don't see why it should not work in reverse order.

To answer your question two-fold:

A. It costs around $549 to buy it outright at your local Walmart, and

B. You cannot make it into a "prepaid"-type phone, as Apple and AT&T have locked the iPhone's availability to be used on a different carrier's network.

Currently the Iphone's are exclusive to AT&T. Their lowest reat plan is 39.99 for 450 rollover minutes/5,000 knights and weekends and unlimited mobile to mobile. The Iphone is a smartphone so it does require the 30.00 smartphone data plan.

Yes. You can find prepaid sim cards in other countries that will work with the iPhone and be cheaper than getting an international plan from AT&T. International roaming and cell use can be enormously expensive. Do your research first, before leaving.

The iphone is quad band so yes you can use it internationally but you need to have an international plan to be able to use it.

1). Yes you can use the Iphone internationally. Since the Iphone has 3G capabilities it is one of the only phones that can actually be used while traveling in Japan and N. Korea ( due to the frequencies they use).

2.) That is also pretty much answered by question 1. However international rates will apply ( will differ per country)

3.) Uh yea the Iphone is a phone..so you will have no issue calling another united states phone number with this phone

No. iPhone requires a two-year AT&T wireless service contract. When you go to activate a new iPhone with iTunes, you would be required to contract with AT&T if you haven't done so, before proceeding.

The answer is yes, and then some. I have an iPhone 3G (16mb). I have AT&T service, but not under any contract or data plan, just cheap voice. My iPhone syncs my music and does all iPod functions, runs a ton of apps including GPS, photo editing, lots of games, bartender mixing program, lots of music programs, lots of calc, math and measurement programs, an indexed copy of the Bill of Rights plus a ton of legal advice, night time sky program, pocket CPR program, readers for my computer files including Acrobat and Zip files, sync with my Outlook address, calendar and notes (plus e-mail if I wanted). I have e-mail, web browsing and remote control of my home computer at any wifi hotspot. I just don't have those last three features anywhere I choose. That would require a data plan, and for what that would cost me per year, I find I can do without it and enjoy the savings.

Yes, though your carrier will have be compatible with the iPhone. Does your carrier carry the iPhone? if it does you could probably just buy an iPhone outright from them cheaper. The $97.00 is for a iPhone with new AT&T contract.

I'm afraid that you will only be able to use the iPhone on AT&T's network only. No one can (legally) use the iPhone outside of the AT&T network in the US, and the Oxygen network in the UK. Sorry!
