Can I get an iPhone 4 w/ no data plan on ATT? ...
I've got a 4S with data on AT&T. The rest of the family is on a family plan with Sprint, all feature phones with no data.
I'm considering switching my daughter to AT&T with me on a family plan there. I see Best Buy is offering the iPhone 4 for free w/ a 2 year activation. I really don't want to spend the money on a data plan for her now.
Is it possible to get her the iPhone 4 on AT&T, via Best Buy, and not get a data plan? Then I could just turn off cell data from within the phone, and it would still work for data within a WiFi area? And of course work as a phone on the AT&T network?
Thanks VERY much in advance,

To Clarify: If you get the subsidized 2-year price, you'll have to sign up for a regular post-paid plan where you'd need a minimum of $15 for your data plan.
You can purchase an UNLOCKED (or maybe a regular AT&T one out of contract works, but I'm not sure) iPhone - either a 3GS, or a 4, or a 4S depending on your budget, and put a MicroSIM into it for the AT&T Go Phone pre-paid plan.
With the prepaid plan you wouldn't have any data unless you chose to allocate your balance on the account towards the purchase of a data pack.
Here's the link for what Applejuiced was talking about:
