    I was just considering the following.

    Say if i were to get a cheap pay as you go phone from att. can i take the sim from that and put it in your iphone and will it work. without hacking just swaping sim cards

    if thats possible i might consider that and make it a pay as you go iPhone:D

    No, you can't use a non iPhone sim in an iPhone. But you can do pay-as-you-go for an iPhone without hacking. Forum search and Google are your friends...this has been posted about tons.

    Yes, you have to jailbreak the iPhone (which some people consider hacking). I don't think pay as you go phone has internet.

    Has this method stopped working? It's jailbreak free. But yes, pay as you go data sucks with the iPhone.

    all you do is fail the credit check(on purpose) by entering in social security # 999-99-999, then att gives you the pay as you go option. its what i use :)

    i bought a 4 gb i phone from a friend with no sim card,cause he needed it for his blackberry. and i bought a go phone 20$ from walmart ,activated it and took out the sim card and put in th i phone and for some reason it worked!
    it is not the i touch so i take it it is the old one! i don't know if the phone was hacked but it works! go figure!

    Yes because your iPhone is ALREADY activated.

    iPhones that are not activated cannot use any sim card unless you
    - Activate through iTunes
    - Activate through hacks
