    Ok well i have a jailbroken ipod touch and its fun but i have the itch to get an iphone,
    but i want to know what the unlimted data plan for 30$ comes with,


    or about how much will unlimited internet and 100 minutes cost?
    thanks

    im 14 and if i want one i have to convince my mom its worth getting but i do not know how exactly to find out the prices

    also if i have unlimitwed internet anywher does that mean if i use a texting plan like freedom sms it will be free?

    The unlimited internet is just that, unlimited. No one that I know of has found a cap to it yet. The iPhone data plan includes the Internet, and visual voicemail. Check AT&T's website for voice plans, I think the minimum is the 450 minutes, and its 39.99 a month

    because if i have unlimited internet and anywhere you can buy texting apps so you can text using im or email, and you can also get apps so you can call people for free

    The voice and data plan are completely separate. Using the internet on the phone does not use minutes at all.

    When you get the iPhone, you will have to have the iPhone data plan (Covers all your internet usage) and the voice plan (covers your talk time). I would recommend a texting plan as well, but its not required. So to recap what you will need :
    1. iPhone (of course)
    2. iPhone Data Plan (If you don't opt for this at first, AT&T will add it on anyhow when they find you using the iPhone) This covers all internet usage when not on WIFI. It is unlimited.
    3. Voice Plan
    4. Text messaging plan (Optional, but worth it if you plan to text)

    Right. Pretty much everything you do on the phone uses the internet somehow (Minus phone calls) Downloading apps, email, etc.
