Hi. I understand that you're suppose to have a data plan for you iPhone. But I have scoured the internet and have found ways of getting around this requirement by switching the iPhone's sim card to an old phone, then call Cingular and say my iPhone is broken or something and request to cancel the data plan all together and disabling any data transfers, leaving the sim card with just the calling. I then use a method which I found on the internet to not allow any internet data usage on my iPhone to be sent or received, then place the sim back card in from the old phone to the iPhone. Would this method leave me with an iPhone with no data? Since my iPhone can no longer broadcast any data, I won't be charged on it. I have read that they send emails or texts stating that I need to switch. That doesn't really bother me. I have read that many people have been off the data for months. But maybe things have updated. I have read that some people are forced a regular $30 plan if they are using an incorrect data plan. But I am not using an incorrect data plan, I'm using no plan. I haven't heard of anybody who has been forced the $30 plan after performing this methord. How many of you guys have heard of people performing my method and then still being forced the data plan? As for my upgrade question. I have a family plan. I am the main user and they're charging me $50. I have 2 other users under me each are $10 each. How straight forward would my upgrade be after I disable the data from my iPhone? Would I still be paying around $50? Note: I have also read quite a lot of argument over "get an iTouch if you don't want data." Let me explain to you why a no data planned iPhone is so much better for me than an iTouch: 1. What do I do with an iPhone with no data. I will download all the apps I want via wifi, then when I go to a place with no wifi, I can play all the apps I want all day long. 2. If I had an iTouch, I won't be playing with it outside my home because I really don't find myself in a situation where I have nothing to do when I'm outside. It goes the same for my PSP, I love it, I bring it to the mall, I never take it out. There is no incentive for me to bring my iTouch outside. 3. But won't I also not bring my iPhone you say? No. An iPhone is also a phone, the iTouch is not. I will always bring my iPhone outside to call people. Then on the rare occasion I do get bored, I can use the apps. 4. Bringing an iTouch outside would mean an extra gadget in my pocket. I then would have a regular phone on one side, an iTouch one the other. And also a wallet. That is too much to carry. 5. Having a dual utility item like the iPhone is much better than just the iTouch. Even though the iPhone with data has more utility, one with no data plan is better than just an iTouch. 6. For a two year contract it is $199 for a 16GB 3gs. For $199 iTouch 8GB 3g is exactly like a 2g, while the iTouch 36GB 3g is $299. So for about the same price, why would I want just an iTouch. I want to call people with it also. There are the reason why I don't just want an iTouch. Thank you for your time. Please answer my question.
