    so a friend of mine was not happy with AT&T so he wanted to move over to T-Mobile but there was only one problem... iPhone 3G cant be unlocked yet....

    he offered to trade me for my phone if i unlocked my 2G iphone...

    so we traded and i just swapped the sim and i am using the phone as is no contract or no change in contract just using the old iPhone plan...

    i still get 3G and GPS.... any word with this sort of situation? anyone with experience out there?

    thanks in advance...

    BTW i dont want the... "well you are going to get a huge bill or blah blah" if you dont know what you are talking about... if you say something thats opinion please state so :)

    Yea, its been done. All data plans work for 3g too, its just a matter of if the phone supports it or not. In theory AT&T could find out your using an iPhone 3G on an edge plan. The contract says that AT&T has permission to add an authorized data plan to your account without your approval if you aren't signed up for one. If they will do this in the future remains to be seen.

    Agreed. I've down this for my wife's iphone 3g by reactivating my old iphone 2g so she's now on the iphone $20 (medianet + 200) plan. I'm on the $30 iphone data plan.

    Worse thing that could happen is that we pay an extra $15 if ATT decides to automatically move her the legal iphone data plan.

    I would pay the lower data plan as long as you can and risk it with ATT auditing your account.

    now if they adjusted my account to change the data rate... that would not increase my contract length right?
