I Hoped Apple Would Do It Right

So it seems the iPhone will require a new two-year contract with AT&T which really sucks. Come on Steve, why couldn't you have done this right? I was prepared to go and drop $600 + tax at an Apple store Friday and then pop in my existing Congular SIM from work. Quite honestly, I don't trust AT&T's incompetence to deal with number portability from Verizon for my personal phone.

Existing AT&T Customers
"If you’re already an AT&T customer and want to keep your current voice plan, you can just add an iPhone Data Plan with unlimited data (email and web) and Visual Voicemail for just $20 per month."

Re: Existing AT&T Customers
Great link, thanks! Now the question is what would it take to make my work account "iPhone enabled"? I already have unlimited data, or so it seems, so not sure and doubt I'll get an easy answer.

Friended you due to your work with OpenID.

Having to do a new contract just to get a new phone is BS. There must be a limited supply, or something.
