    I was thinking of buying a 2nd gen jailbroken iphone from a friend...
    I have at&t. I don't want to pay the $20 data charge every month.
    Will at&t recognize my iphone and start charging me the monthly rate if it's jailbroken!?!?!?!?!?!

    No, they wont.
    AT&T doesnt even require the data plan on 2G iphones anyway.
    Just block carrier data if you dont want to pay per use/kb and only use the internet on wifi.

    at&t may or may not recognize the iPhone. If they do, they may contact you regarding it. They do require the $20 data plan for the 2G iPhones, but some people have had luck getting around it. You should look to see if your employer has an at&t FAN account, that can reduce the cost of your monthly plan.

    AT&T will let you remove the iphone data from 2G iphones, its not mandatory any more like the 3G and 3GS models.

    No, I meant that AT&T doesnt care any more wether you have a data plan on your 2G iphone or not.
    They will not bug you like they do at times with 3G and 3GS iphones.
    All you gotta do is go to this site with your iphone
    unlockit.co.nz and install the fake apn file.
    The FakeAPN sets the APN to a random value. As (most) phone carriers need a valid APN set on your phone for it to access data, setting it to a random value should make it fail in connecting (so your data is disabled on the phone)
    It will still work on wifi only.
