AT&T has just posted a whole bunch of official iPhone 3G info on its site this morning as it prepares for the hoards of people waiting to snag the new Apple handset on July 11. First and foremost is the announcement that the iPhone 3G will be available for sale at 8:00 am next Friday. Wait, where have we heard that before? We’re guessing there are going to be some pretty early lines forming this year. Next comes the official plan pricing which goes as follows:

AT&T Nation (unlimited data included)

  • $69.99 – 450 anytime minutes, 45¢ each addtl minute, 5,000 night / weekend minutes
  • $89.99 – 900 anytime minutes, 40¢ each addtl minute, unlimited night / weekend minutes
  • $109.99 – 1,350 anytime minutes, 35¢ each addtl minute, unlimited night / weekend minutes
  • $129.99 – Unlimited minutes

AT&T FamilyTalk (includes 2 lines, unlimited data & night / weekend minutes, $39.99 each additional line)

  • $129.99 – 700 anytime minutes, 45¢ each addtl minute
  • $149.99 – 1,400 anytime minutes, 40¢ each addtl minute
  • $169.99 – 2,100 anytime minutes, 35¢ each addtl minute
  • $209.99 – 3,000 anytime minutes, 25¢ each addtl minute
  • $259.99 – 4,000 anytime minutes, 20¢ each addtl minute
  • $359.99 – 6,000 anytime minutes, 20¢ each addtl minute
  • $259.99 – Unlimited minutes ($129.99 each additional line)

Add Text Plan

  • $5 – 200 messages per month (individual plan)
  • $15 – 1,500 messages per month (individual plan)
  • $20 – Unlimited messages (individual plan)
  • $30 – Unlimited messages (FamilyTalk plan)
  • 20¢ per message if no plan is selected

Beyond all that, the contract price points were announced by Stevo at WWDC so there’s no news there. AT&T customers who aren’t eligible for an upgrade will pay a $200 premium ($399.99 for the 8 GB and $499 for the 16 GB) so the $200 subsidy rumor was indeed spot on. There is also an interesting note found on the site: “Coming soon, AT&T will offer a no-commitment option of $599 for 8GB and $699 for 16GB.” Re-he-healy?
