    I just read that AT&T now are scanning networks and can find who use iPhones and charge them for data due to the new release of iPhone 4. Has anyone been detected by AT&T and charged?

    I know someone who did about a month ago or so.
    Data plan was added automaticly.
    I also know another person with 5 iphones on a family plan with no data and still nothing.
    Hit or miss I guess.
    I dont think its cause of the release of iPhone 4. They could have done that at any time they wanted due to the user agreement policy for all AT&T subscribers.

    A lot of people have been sent a text from AT&T that they r now chrging them for data. So can people still use gophone sims in iPhones without getting charged?
  5. macrumors Nehalem


    Yes, with gophones obviously they cannot charge you since its prepaid:D

    Will they be able to detect my iPhone 3gs 3.1.3 using a regular AT&T sim?

    Yeah. They have been doing this for a very long time. I wouldn't worry though. I have three iPhones on our family plan, one has no data plan and two are running the iPhone 2g $20/unlimited (though I have iPhone 3gS). Every since I've had my phones, AT&T has sent me emails on a monthly basis that they have changed my plan to the correct one but they have never actually done anything. :cool:

    And are you sure that someday down the road you will NOT receive a collection agency letter or call?

    Do u use the iPhone 3gs without data? What firmware is the iPhone without data on and how long have u been doing this?
