AT&T iPhone vs. BlackBerry Comparison: Data Rates

When we took the time earlier in the week to compare Rogers’ iPhone and BlackBerry voice and data rates, we were surprised at how well the iPhone 3G fared. Comparing AT&T’s iPhone and BlackBerry plans, however, we’re surprised by the similarities: unless you need visual voicemail, there is absolutely no difference between AT&T’s plans. This is actually bad news for 3G iPhone buyers, because it means that AT&T is now charging an extra $20 dollars for unlimited SMS when they offered 200 free SMS with iPhone 1.0. Sometimes parity isn’t so wonderful.

Why don’t we focus on the good, like my impressive photoshopped main image?

Hank: Looks like Doug corrected the mistake. I really blame his sources for misleading him.

Other than that - I think that the iPhone 3G draw will suck at the BlackBerry users rather than the Everyday Consumers, since it’s an easy switch for a BlackBerry user regarding price (i.e. no extra charge) whereas if you’re an everyday user, you have to pay MORE to get it!
