    I heard we can get unlimited data plan by activate an iPhone 2g. However, I only can borrow my friend's iPhone 3G. Can I get the unlimited data plan by activate the iPhone 3G on my line?


    Thanks a lot

    No, 3Gs can only get the $15/$25 plans.

    New unlimited plans were phased out first week on June.

    I BELIEVE you can still get the unlimited plan if you activate a first generation iPhone on your line. I may be wrong however.

    You need a first gen. My brother just did it and it worked perfectly.

    I can't find a first gen iPhone... Btw, I am in LA. More than grateful if someone let me borrow their first gen iPhone for 10min lol :)

    Yes, this is the only way you can still get unlimited.

    So, all I need to do is plugging in the iPhone 2g to my computer and using itune activate, choosing the unlimited plan and then replugging my iPhone 4?

    Thanks

    I have no idea if it works, my thought process says no, it will not.

    But I could rent my mint condition iPhone to you...for a price. ;)

    The 2G had worse reception at launch than iPhone4, a software update fixed the 2G a few weeks after launch.
