    i am buying a iphone 3g off my brother and would like to activate it with a data plan without the 2 year contract.

    is it possible?

    Your brother's contract will continue with his SIM card.

    You're free to get another AT&T SIM Card, no-contract and use it with the iPhone.

    The only time you ever sign a contract is when you buy a discounted phone from AT&T. Since you bought the phone off someone else, you don't have to have a contract. Only if you bought the phone brand new.
