With those prices, I will not be getting an iPhone. Look's like it's an iPod Touch for me.

Caller ID is an option? This is so 20th century mentality...
Anyway, I suppose the iPhone address book lookup on incoming calls will reduce the need for it.... or will it? With no Caller ID option will the phone still get the incoming number?

$60 is a bit high considering I don't use my phone a lot. What really blows is that data is mandatory. Looks like I'll either be buying a touch or a 1.0 iPhone. Anyone selling one cheap?

I pay 50 as it is for 100 minutes plus a MEG data. So the 60 for 150 plus 400 megs seems nice to me. I still plan on getting one.
