Contractual obligations make new $200 iPhone more expensive than old one
runs the numbers of the new iPhone's Total Cost of Ownership. It does not come out good.
The iPhone itself may be cheaper, but the required flat-rate data plan now costs $30 per month, a $10 increase. Over the mandatory two-year contract, that works out to an extra $240. AT&T also now charges $5 per month for 200 text messages, which used to be free. That adds up to another $120. ... The new iPhone is not more affordable. Anyone deceived by Apple's lower price point is going to get a nasty wake-up call when they read their first bill.
I can almost hear Daffy sputtering at the 60-page sheaf sent to him by AT&T at the end of the month. Detheived!
