    I am out of ideas, every month the bill for my iPhone goes up. I know you can get rid of the data plan, but then that defeats the purpose of the phone. That is why I need to return it. The problem is, Apple does not allow you to return the iPhone for money. I was wondering how I could get rid of the iPhone and get some dough while doing so. Any ideas??

    I'm confused. You're getting rid of the iPhone after 14 days, but your bill goes up every month? 14 days isn't even half a month.

    The return period is 14 days.

    The OP has apparently gone past this.

    So he/she's asking now they are out of the 14 days grace period what can they do to get rid of their iPhone.

    Odd. My bill has been a very consistent $66.05.

    The only think that will make it go up is:

    Going over minutes

    Sending/Receiving more than 200 SMS a month.

    Your first month is pro-rated. Your second month should have stabilized the pro-rate and been lower than normal possibly. Third, fourth, fifth, etc.. those should all be the same.

    I'd sort out what's going on with your billing from your provider first. Sounds odd to me that your bills would be going up and up.

    If you still want to get rid of it, I'm sure there are lots of members here that would take it off your hands for a reasonable price... or throw it up on eBay.

    Mine's $66 and change every month, as well. A lot cheaper than my Verizon contract with twice the phone I had before.

    The OP has had the phone for more than 14 days, and that's why he wants to know how to get rid of it.

    Yes, I agree with this. OP, find out why your charges are fluctuating every month. This really is more of an ATT problem than an iPhone problem.

    I don't understand how the charge can fluctuate from month to month. Are you going over your minutes/texts at different rates? Other than this, I can't think of a reason why you would see such variations in your bill.

    No matter what phone you get if your bill is going up because of your usage than it is going to go up. Why did you buy the iPhone if you couldn't afford the data plan?

    Well, I also need the money... Also, I need to switch over to Verizon for other reasons. I want to sell on eBay, bu t I don't know how to deactivate it so I can sell it.
