Hey guys!

I currently have unlimited data with my iPhone 4S

I recently sold my iPhone 4S and am switching to an origonal iPhone until the iPhone 5 comes out. I know that the only plan that comes with the origonal iPhone is the unlimited data plan. Will switching to the 2G iPhone affect my ability to get my unlimited data back if ATT happens to allow it to be carried over to the 5?

I fail to see why downgrading or even changing phones for that matter would remove your unlimited data plan, but the best person to call would be your AT&T rep.

Just switch the SIM cards and don't say anything to AT&T... Original iPhone is still an iPhone and came with unlimited data. You're not changing your plan in anyway

I just was not sure because the 2G iPhone kind of has a plan of its own. People used to do the trick to get unlimited data back by switching to the original iPhone than back to a 4 or 4S and they would have unlimited again but I know they fixed that loophole.

1.) He is using a microsim in his 4S, the original one used a regular sized SIM.
2.) The 4S actually has a "4S data plan" where as the 4 and lower have a "data plan".

Seems like no difference but in AT&T's system it is.
