My iPhone 4 cost me £560 ($900), and I've now had it for 2 and a half years - 30 months. So my monthly costs have been 900/30 + 35 = $65/month. Not too dissimilar to yours.
I would actually save $10 if I took data with 1G unlimited and then band width restrictions. Funny that the costs was so similar.
