Let us know, this is pretty important post you wrote (thanks)
Dunno if I'd go that route... it can be a slippery slope, and be the difference between pissed off IAP purchasers and happy customers.

If you lower the price of everything, people who purchased coins via IAP before then could get upset at the fact that they essentially wasted money, money that they didn't NEED to spend, but did thinking that they were helping to support you.

If anything, I'd say maybe up the amount of coins you could win for taking part in Team Battles (not much, but maybe 1,500 per battle), and maybe up the amount of coins you get per game if you are taking part in Team Battles as well (again, not by much, but say you get 150 for each game you contribute to, up that to 200) - you could also make it so that battles don't last as long, which would really help out. Upping the amount of coins that you earn in-game as well, even if just making it 1.5 coins per passenger instead of 1 would make a noticeable difference.

This way, everyone, whether they've purchased extra currency or not, gets the same increase, and doesn't feel that any previously purchased coins were a waste.

It also wouldn't hurt to throw in a coin doubler for $1.99/$2.99 or something - doubling all coins earned and gained - that way it doesn't feel like SUCH a grind to those of us who are willing to toss you guys a couple extra $$. This could also win over some players who are willing to do this, but have held back because of the consumable nature of the IAP currency.

Just some thoughts...

But you should definitely keep in mind the people that have purchased currency before now as well as gamers that have spent hours upon hours playing just to earn those couple of great games, and I think lowering all of the in-store prices would have a negative effect on your 5 star reviews and all the great support you've gotten from gamers thus far.
