What about the rest of the iPhone faithful and early adopters? The report states that, "If you signed a 2-year contract with AT&T when the iPhone came out (which you pretty much had to), you'll have to sign another new 2-year contract to score a new iPhone 3G.
Here's the real zinger though, AT&T announced that their data plan for standard users will now cost $30 per month raising the stakes $10 per month over existing plans. Unlimited data service for businesses will cost $45 per month. This means that cult of iPhone members will be giving up more cash by the end of a two-year contract compared to the previous deal.
