OK I know I am being REALLY lazy here but I wondered if anyone who has done the leg work would be kind enough to share their knowledge with me....

I move to the US in just under 3 weeks and want to get the new iphone 4. I will need a price plan that gives me minutes, text and data. We will be living either NY state or Connecticut. can anyone advise me on the best company to use in terms of coverage and price.... At the moment I have about 300 mins and 500 text and I never go over plus I will be moving there and the only person I know is my husband so no long calls to friends as I don't have any !!

Also, how long is the norm contract if the phone company throws the phone in at a discount / free.... ??

in the UK it was 2 years but here in Singapore they tie you in to 3 years.....

ooh and whilst I am typing - who should I be looking at for home telephone / internet ?? AT&T come up on all my googling... do they give good service?

here you go for the plans for the iphone..

data pro for the iphone with trething-x-2.gb plan is $.45.oo

data pro for the iphone without trething -x-2.gb plan is $.25.oo

data pro for the iphone without trething -x-250.mb plan is $.15.oo
plus you have to keep the data pro plan as long as you on the service with AT&T for use with the iphone model ..so that the part i did not like


national wide talk plans..

ind talk unlimited is $.69.99.
rollover 900 mins is $.59.99
rollover 450 mins is $.39.99

messageing plans

unlimited messageing is $.20.oo
messageing 1500 texts is $.15.oo
messageing 200 texs is $.5,00

this is the basic plans for the iphone that they have listed on there website here in the states..

plus you have to add state taxs also to the bill after getting the bill ..hope this helps..


part two of this

AT&T is the only cell phone company that has the iphone there is no other companys allowed to carry it ..

as far the bundles shop around for the local sat tv or cable company rates in the area you live in

my cable bill is about $.190.oo dollars a month without taxs but here is the reason why

standard internet speeds for what i need to do ..the cable internet fee for the month with modem-x-$.46.oo dollars

tv with dvr and all the channels and hbo-showtime-starz-encore-etc-with the packages i have all put together the cable fee is $.130.oo dollars a month

so i basic can record the shows i watch to view them at a later time..

so you can pick and chose a package but as far the phone part of the bundle i never used one or need one and i cut out the landline for over 10 years now ..so it up to you on that one..
