According to AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel, a report today that AT&T will wait until the day of iPhone’s launch to disclose rate plans for the device is inaccurate. “We will disclose before the 29th,” said Siegel, noting that customers will be able to show up at stores that day knowing how much they will be charged for both the Apple-developed hardware and AT&T’s cellular service plans. “It’s not going to be anything exotic,” Siegel told iLounge, confirming that there will be separate voice and data services components to its iPhone service plans, rather than the one-size-fits-all plans some had expected. As previously stated by both companies, and re-confirmed by Siegel, a two-year service commitment will still be required.

I am a current AT&T subscriber under a 2-year agreement that’ll end in Aug 2008, and AT&T has told me that I am “not eligible” for an iPhone!! They suggest that I get a new line (and a new phone number) with another 2-year agreement to get an Phone.  Ridiculous! They won’t even unlock my current cellphone even upon repeated requests, forget letting me upgrade to an Phone.  It’s so strange: here is a company that is not at all concerned about helping its current customers and is looking for new ones…it’s a foolish strategy, I think.
