AT&T announces iPhone business plans

AT&T has announced details of its iPhone business plans, and is now offering the handset to business customers. In addition to an eligible voice plan, business customers wanting to add an iPhone to their account must also sign-up for a 2-year service agreement or a renewed 2-year agreement and must add one of three Enterprise Data Plans for iPhone to their account. Enterprise Data Plans for iPhone include unlimited data, Visual Voicemail, and either 200 ($45), 1500 ($55), or Unlimited ($65) SMS text messages a month. In addition, two separate Global Data Plans are available — 20MB for $25 a month, or 50MB for $60 — for business users who travel internationally. In addition, qualified Corporate Responsibility Users and other corporate-liable users who activate an Enterprise Data Plan for iPhone by March 31, 2008 may be eligible to receive a service credit in the amount of $25 per month through December 31, 2008.

...don’t forget that service credit.

also…how do voice minutes work into this system?  are they included in the 45/55/65 plans, or is that extra?

Voice plans are extra, and required. The $45 is just for 200 SMS and unlimited data. Business customers are likely to be using a lot more than the 450 minutes included with the standard personal plan.

So maybe I misunderstand this but why would someone do the Enterprise Data Plan for iPhone 200 for $45?  If that is only data, isn’t the standard $20 data plan for non-business customers the same thing but $25 cheaper.  What am I missing?

I love how the original post is all knowing, and then the 3rd post offers an answer to the first posters question, however when the last poster asks an absolutley awesome question there are no further comments to be made.  The last poster is absolutley right, why does a consumer account get an iphone data plan for 20 bucks and a small business customer has to shell out 45 for the exact same thing?  I used to work for a Cingular/AT&T;Wireless call center and I was able to call in and get the consumer account rates for all my user’s Iphone data plans
