iPhone plan pricing is the real story

$60 a month? For unlimited data? Not just for the data, but for a bunch of minutes and SMS, and the data?

Apple/AT+T just destroyed the pricing plans of Verizon. The initial price of the iPhone is now irrelevant. The service is so much cheaper than comparable offerings that it doesn't matter.

I'm trying to figure out some clever scheme to get an iPhone without waiting in line. Hopefully one that doesn't involve breaking the law.

Update: it turns out you can just buy one on the Apple online store. Assuming they have any left in stock. Waiting in line is for chumps.
