    It is the best solution. That's what I thought when I read about the AT&T $200 rumors. I think Apple can avoid many problems by selling the iPhone at say $600 and AT&T will give you back $200 credit when you activate your iPhone. This way Apple will get almost the equivalent of the revenues sharing in advance and everyone is happy. The only downside is that buyers have to pay initial higher price but at the end it is the same.

    AT&T 3G data plan is $35. Maybe AT&T will still keep the same $20 price instead of the $200? But what if I don't have 3G available in my area?

    We will see in 4 weeks

    In Denmark we have 98% 3G coverage, WiMaxx in all major towns and cities. In Sweeden they have superfast broadband, Denmark is one of the worlds leading IT nations. So check your facts before being boastful, as far as i know 3G is hard to come by in the states.
