Cingular iPhone Ad Leaked: Rate Plans Revealed


Feb 16, 200715022Views44Comments

Update: AT&T has now announced the iPhone rate plans.

Be the first to see this not-yet-released Cingular iPhone ad, revealed by a reliable source in a private iPhone consumer survey from Pinecone Research.

It appears the iPhone rate plans from Cingular may be the same as Cingular’s current plan options: $39.99 a month for 450 minutes, unlimited mobile to mobile calling, and 5,000 night and weekend minutes. The data plans will start at $4.99 a month for 200 messages OR a $19.99 a month data plan for 200 messages plus unlimited Internet and Visual Voicemail.

EDIT: In addition, the Cingular iPhone ad lists iPhone prices as $299 for the 4GB model and $399 for the 8GB model.

Sounds good to me. Click the ad to see a larger version of the image:

You saw it here first. 😉

  1. the ad is fake. the prices officially released were in the Cingular MSD from back in September. “No carrier subsidies” is also in the MSD. i guess i can say that now that apple has officially activated an iphone via the cingular activation process.

  2. The rate scale is very simple, folks.

    The iPhone will cost: $1 less than the most you would ever imagine paying.

    AT&T is going to charge: Twice what seems humanly reasonable.

    Extra features from AT&T will cost: Four times what seems humanly reasonable.

    It is all carefully calculated.

  3. Sorry, hit return too fast…That is SEPARATE from their text messaging plan that starts at $4.99 a month for 200 messages, etc.

    I can’t see AT&T offering the data plan for only $19.99.

  4. “The data plans will start at $4.99 a month for 200 messages OR a $19.99 a month data plan for 200 messages plus unlimited Internet and Visual Voicemail.”

    Not likely. Cingular/AT&T currently charges $39.99 per month for unlimited data on their PDA plans. That is SEPARATE

  5. This can’t be a true thing bc if they are trying to test consumer’s reaction towards the price’s product. It SHOULD talk about the product. Does it say anything about the iPhone’s feature which are its strongest points as an innovative product… You are paying $299 for the PHONE, whatever is described in this fake ad is about the subscription to Cingular…
