The iPhone will never tempt me now because of the "iPlan". My plan with Sprint costs half as much as the iPhone's cheapest $60/month plan, and offers more minutes, faster unlimited data, unlimited texting (iPlan, it costs extra).
I guess AT&T has to make up their profits somewhere after paying through the nose to get the Apple "exclusivity."
I am not even remotely convinced the iPhone innovates enough to warrant being the "end all be all" of PDA Phone Media Player Gadget. It may be in a slick package, but deep down, it's pretty shallow.
The stripped down Safari browser, for example. No Flash? C'mon. How is that any different than any other stripped down browser on other PDA Phones? Auto rotation and zooming aside, without Flash support, it just doesn't cut the mustard. I would've at least thought Apple would've included full flash support, there are so many websites that have flash nowadays. So no way the iPhone will give a FULL web experience.
Only way would be to use the iPhone as a modem and "tether" to a laptop on the o to get FULL internet browsing capabilities.
Oh wait, you can't do that with the iPhone with the current plans...
I can do that with my phone, right now, in fact.
