    The iPhone it self is not expensive being the same price as an iPod Touch 2.5G (or whatever you call the new one.) What is expensive is the plan.

    Right now I have a Samsung Impression with AT&T. I have unlimited text & internet. However, to get an iPhone I would have to pay $30 for a data plan on top of this?

    Is there anyway make it more affordable?

    I had a LG VU with AT&T. I unlocked it, disabled EDGE and 3G and didn't have to pay for the data plan. It cost like 290 bucks to get an iPhone 3G from eBay, but I'm sure you can get one cheaper at your school

    So wait if I unlock the iPhone, I can keep my plan how it is and have an iPhone instead of my current phone? Will I be able to use 3G?

    If you want to use 3G, you'll have to buy the iPhone data like I did, which is $30 a month. If you don't, unlock it, and disable EDGE and 3G.
