    is that for data plans and every cost besides buying the phone itself?

    You can get phone plans for MUCH less than that, but you'd have to cover the cost of the iPhone yourself which, if it's a new model, would be several hundred out of pocket. Though, you'll have to choose: Steam Machine or iPhone.

    I pay $67 a month for 3GB of LTE on T-Mobile (and unlimited 2G after that), on a post-paid plan, for my Android phone. iPhone should be subject to the same plan prices.

    Speaking of, that reminded me to downgrade to the 2GB of LTE for free, rather than $10 for 3GB. Thanks GBAtemp. (So now my service will be about $55 a month)

    Well, maybe if you went with AT&T ;) I kid, I kid, but seriously, they do charge a lot.
