    Hi,

    I currently have the old generation iPhone and placed an order for the new iPhone 4 yesterday and I have a question about my old iPhone.

    Yesterday I called AT&T to place an order for the new iPhone 4 and everything went good, after making the upgrade I asked if I could use my old iPhone without a data plan basically use it as a regular phone by swapping the SIM card from my Samsung (second line) and they said NO. They said that I could swap SIM cards but as soon as the system recognizes that what I’m using for that line is an iPhone a data plan will be assigned automatically.

    My question is, is there a way to use my iPhone as a regular phone to at least have the WI-FI advantage?

    I know this is the last option but… by jail breaking it would that work?

    Can someone give me some ideas as to how I can continue using my old iPhone.

    Thanks

    honestly, I used an iphone on ATT for two years w/o them every knowing it or 'adding' a data plan - all I did was block all the data using a spoofed APN/ARN (sp?) address.

    not sure if that's still applicable, I haven't done it that was in about 1.5 years.

    goodluck.

    You can stick your simcard in and use it without data but like they told you if/when they detect you're using an iphone without a data plan on your account they can and will automaticly add a data plan.
    They started doing that to many people latelly.
