Report indicates that iPhone coming to AT&T GoPhone

Finally, it appears that we’ll get a true AT&T GoPhone version of the iPhone. Last month we heard that Apple was considering a lower-priced iPhone that would fit with AT&T’s prepaid lineup, and now we’ve heard even stronger word. Boy Genius Report reports that when Apple announces the next version of the iPhone, it will also announce a mid-tier model for prepaid. In fact, that mid-tier model might be the iPhone 3GS. It would cost “no more than $350″ and would obviously not require a contract. The only drawback is that GoPhone offers terribly restrictive data plan tiers: $5 for 10MB, $15 for 100MB, and $25 for 500MB. Maybe they’ll announce better data plans along with the iPhone. In any case, it should be here in time for the fall. Will you get one, or willy you stick with cheaper prepaid options?

    Not worth it. Virgin Mobile, Boost, and Cricket offer smartphones for half the price of AT&T. AT&T is too expensive; i dont care what kind of phones they have.

    Personally, I don’t think you’ll easily find a prepaid option that offers both iphone, and a good rate for data and calling/texting. I agree with Nova-AT&T is too expensive. I’d rather stick to my StraightTalk(tracfone) Nokia E71, which may be steps behind the iphone, but at least I know it won’t cost me more than $45 for unlimited everything, and still gives me AT&T coverage. That said, if iphone ever came to Tracfone, I would fork out the extra on the phone happily-best of both worlds!
