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.
