it will require a data plan. if you dont want a data plan just get an ipod touch. i don't see how someone can not get a data plan with a phone that is so interlocked with the internet.

It's such a ripoff. It seems cheap right now, but the iPhone is essentially useless without a data plan and knowing AT&T they'll probably have slapped a whole crap ton of hidden fees and whatnot in them. So you'll still pay a lot in the end...it just doesn't seem like it.

Well, I would be content to just use the WiFi service. I want to get a decent touch screen phone for about $200. If I find out around July 11th that I NEED a data plan, I will probably just get the Vu.

If they do... I am all over it then, lol.

Upon a little research, it looks like the original Iphone does have wifi. I think I might get the original iphone, unless a data plan isnt required with the new one.

Sweet, I think I am going to get one off of craigslist. I can find one in the Chicago area for less then $200 I think. I only foun two tilts on there, and they were $275, and $300, and I cant convince my mom to let me spend that much on a phone. Need to save for college.
