    My Contract is up with Verizon this weekend Yay:) and i wanna switch out quickly to att, my problem is though I wanna wait to see whats gonna come out after wwdc in terms of the 4th gen iPhone. That said I've been using a 2G iPhone as a iPod for almost a year now and I was wondering what i need to set up with a Go Phone can I buy any type of Sim card then setup as a Go Phone or do I need a Specific Go Phone Sim card? and anything else I should know would greatly be appreciated.

    I think a reliable solution is to call AT&T and find out.

    yeah you will need a pick ur plan go phone account, a regular go phone refill card wont work without burning thru ur balance, just get a unlimited data with go phone $10 cheaper than iphone data plan and change the carrier settings for data to work

    They have discontinued unlimited data over a year ago because too many iPhone users were using it instead if real iPhone plans. I too still have a GoPhone plan in which I was lucky enough to still have a unlimited data plan but it expires in April if I don't refill it. I haven't refilled it since January.

    They only offer 1MB for $4.99 or 100MB for $19.99 now.

    I have been using a iPhone Gen1 with the att pick your plan goPhone plan since 08. with the $20 unlimited data.

    Said Gen1 iPhone finally died on me this past weekend. The question is can I move my already active iphone gophone account to the iPhone 4. If so. What do I need to do.
