An Open Letter to Apple Regarding the iPhone

Since Day 1, I have always wanted an iPhone. However, I never wanted to be bogged down with a service contract so I never gave in. The wife and I are already on AT&T but I never wanted to pay for the monthly data plan, since most of the time I am in a wifi network. The only time that I want to have a data plan is when I travel or when the wife and I want to watch a movie and we weren't able to check the movie schedule before leaving the house, among others.

So, to cure my hunger for an iPhone, I am now on my second iPod Touch (the first one's with the wife). Combined with my Nokia E63, I am a happy camper - I only use data when I want to. But I sorely want to bring only one thing!

So, my plea is this Apple folks, Sir Steve Jobs, Sir: since you have already gone "Prepaid" with the iPad, can you also release an iPhone that, at the least, we can put in our AT&T chip (SIM card) and only pay for the data plan only on those times that we use it? Constantly paying $30 for something I won't use everyday would be such a waste, not to mention that a lot of people are getting angry with the AT&T 3G service in major cities. And I haven't even mentioned the new price for the early-termination-fee.

I said this before and I say it again: if only Apple released an unlocked iPhone, I would already be in my second or third iPhone by now...
