Other basic price plans such as the ‘Blue Plan’ (12 in total) and the ‘Orange Plan’ (10 in total) will also be offered in order to enable customers to subscribe to their preferred price plan.

A new service - ‘Packet Flat-rate Full’ (5,985 yen/month) - enabling customers full access to web browsing, video and map services regardless of the communication charges will be introduced. In addition to the basic price plan iPhone 3G users will be required to subscribe to ‘Packet Flat-rate Full’ and ‘S! Basic Pack’ (315 yen/month).

In summary, a white plan subscriber will have to pay 980 yen (White Plan Basic) + 5,985 yen (Packet Flat-rate Full) + 315 yen (Basic Pack), which is a total of 7,280 yen (67 USD) a month. Doesn’t sound cheap at all!
