More rumblings of AT&T iPhone exclusivity ending...

Apple to End AT&T iPhone Exclusivity Within a Year? | John Paczkowski | Digital Daily | AllThingsD.

I love the first comment:

I’d pay to end my AT&T contract, and I’m only two months into it.

I get a small discount on my AT&T/iPhone service w/ unlimited text messages, and I'm looking at a bill for one month that's around $89. In order to get my wife on a plan:

  • 700 minutes - $69.99
  • 2 x $30 iPhone data plan - $60
  • 2 x $20 unlimited texting - $40 (I realize that 1500 messages are only $15 each, but if you run over by 100 msgs, that's $20)

That's $170 per month before all the taxes and fees. If another carrier were to offer service, I'd definitely pay the early termination fee as well, and like the commenter, I'm only about 2 months into the contract.
