    i believe if u buy it thorough att and use a subsidized price then yes you will need a data plan. but if you buy the phone off ebay or a full priced phone from att then no new plan is needed.

    No it won't use your iphones data plan. You will pay per MB if you don't buy another data plan.

    If you want to use them simultaneously you'll need another data plan. If you're just moving a SIM back and forth I don't think you will.

    Yeah this is what i'm talking about.

    I dont want to break my iphone while going snowboarding etc. I am going to take the sim out of my iphone and stick it in another phone (Say a sidekick). Will i need to pay per mb to use data or will it come off my dataplus plan

    Maybe you should call your provider and ask them.
