Glenn Laurie, president of national distribution for AT&T, is saying that an unlimited package is in the works for AT&T customers who want to purchase the iPhone. Makes sense due to all the rich features that use the Internet on the iPhone, right? On the issue of web browsing, Laurie says:
“I think it will be great for us, and here’s why. One of the things with this device — people are going to be asked to have an unlimited package — people are going to have to have a package with us to browse.”
Basically, it’s like AT&T’s version of the Sidekick plan that T-Mobile offers. I think AT&T will have to strongly market this “unlimited” plan they speak of to all iPhone customers. The problem is price. Do you really feel like shelling out an extra $20-40 a month after paying $500 for a cellphone? Probably not.
