The catch (you knew there was one) is that iPhone contracts come with mandatory data plans and phones that can never be unlocked (barring an Act of Congress - which is not impossible in this case).
So you'll be getting your kid a data plan whether you want to or not. It really only makes sense if you want to do that, and if you're going to give them a data plan phone (like an old iPhone). You'll also be making it harder to quite AT&T, which they are quite in favor of.
I am still mad at ATT for changing my ability to have unlimited data, as needed, on my less than 2 month old iPad 3G. I expected to use it a few times a year when traveling and not much else.
I am hoping for Verizon by early 2011.Verizon always let you use any member's update and switch it to other family members. To my knowledge ATT did too.
I love the iPhone (we have 3), but we all complain about dropped calls daily with ATT.
