p2pnet.net news:- Anyone who still wants an iPhone after learning they’ll be forced to open an iTunes account to get rolling, and pay AT&T $175 if they change their minds, may also want to think about signing up for something else – a bank overdraft.
“We want to make choosing a service plan simple and easy, so every plan includes unlimited data with direct Internet access,” says Steve Jobs, according to CBTech, which goes on:
“Each plan includes the following: unlimited data and email, unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling, 200 (really?) SMS text messages, and roll-over minutes. You can upgrade to more text messaging, but it’s a bit disconcerting that even the $99 plan doesn’t include at least an increase of 100 SMS text messages. As for plan choices, here they are – finally!! -: $59.99 gets you 450 minutes of talk time; $79.99 results in 900 minutes; and $99.99 will net you 1,350 minutes.”
You’ll also have to pay a $36 activation fee.
iPhones cost $500 or $600, depending on capacity.

Tired of being treated like a criminal? They depend on you, not the other way around. Don’t buy their ‘product’. Do bug your local politicians. Use emails, snail-mail, phone calls, faxes, IM, stop them in the street, blog. And if you’re into organizing, organize petitions, organize demonstrations and then turn up on your local political rep’s doorstep, making sure you’ve contacted your local tv/radio station/newspaper in advance. Don’t just complain. Do something!
