Owning an iPhone 3G will Cost More Than iPhone 2G

For the original iPhone 2G, for the majority of those who paid $399 for an 8 GB model, the monthly plan for 450 minutes was US$39.99/mo for the voice service and $20/mo for the unlimited data plan That also included 200 text messages. The total outlay, not including taxes, has been: $59.99. Over 24 months, that’s about US$1,476, including the $36 activation fee you paid.

For the iPhone 3G, on the same 450 minutes plan, the bundled price of voice and unlimited data rises to US$69.99. However to get those 200 text messages back will cost an extra $5/month. The total outlay is $74.99 over 24 months, or just under $1800.00.

Adding the prices of the phones in gives US$399 + $1,476 for the iPhone 2G resulting in an outlay of US$1,875.

For the iPhone 3G, (8GB) over the next 24 months, you’ll pay US$199 + $1,800 + $18 activation fee or US$2,017 (before taxes).

Customers will end up paying more for the luxury of that alluring looking $199 (8 GB) iPhone 3G, but for some, the increased data rates, if they’re in a 3G capable area, may well be worth it.
