    I don't believe that AT&T will allow you to cancel the plan.. but you would probably have to turn off data COMPLETELY. That's my guess.

    if anything, the data functions better than the phone itself.

    i spend most of day in school, office, and my room where wi-fi is available, so i dont want to pay extra 30 bucks for data plan which i dont really need.

    AT&T let me cancel my 3G data plan. Text messaging still works, and voicemail works by dialing instead of visually.

    actually yes, you can. I told them that I switched my phone and they just took it off. Mind you, I did eventually sell my iPhone on ebay a few days later (USED FOR 465 !! WOOT) only for profit, but I would just be careful, you dont want to rack up internet charges. they didnt even charge me for a half months internet use. my bill I got on the 19th was 58.85 and I have 450 mins (39.99) plus ulim messaging (19.99).

    If you do cancel your data plan, make sure to have the carrier completely block data connection. Otherwise you could rack up a huge bill if you think you're using wifi, but the wifi connection got dropped or broken.
