    I have an original 2G iPhone. Of course I have the $20 data plan with 200 text messages. Where I am located we have no 3G service, and I rarely use the edge data. I do however use the text message feature. Is there any way I can stay on this data plan and upgrade to the new 3GS phone? It would be crazy for me to pay an extra $15 a month for features I can't receive in my area, or I don't use.
    Any insight would be helpful.

    You know you cant. If you do not want to pay extra, then stay with the 2g iphone.

    From a pure technical point of view it will work just fine. AT&T will know the device you are using, since it self-reports it's IMEI everytime it connects.

    There is a sticky thread at the top of the forum that may be of interest to you.

    Obviously $15 extra per month isn't worth it if you can't take advantage of 3G, so stick with your 1st gen for the time being.

    Yes, but you have to pay full price for the phone.
