    Would I be able to get a regular phone, cancel data and get a cheaper text plan and keep the same number?

    yeah, you will probably have to buy a regular phone at full price. You can get rid of data, but text plans are the same no matter what phone you have, so i'm not sure what you're asking there. You can downgrade to whatever plan you want, but the price points are still $5 for 200 texts, $15 for 1500 texts, and $20 for unlimited

    Word, i have a spare phone already. what if i didn't sell my iphone and switched the sim back, but never used the data part of the phone. just to use it as a phone with text + mms and my ipod.

    I think ATT makes you have a data plan.. if you have an iPhone.. I would not reconmend doing that becuase any data that does happen will be charged

    I don't think that you need a data plan but I could be wrong. However, without data, you will not have a voicemail.

    you can do this, and it will work...but there's a catch


    att does periodic plan checks, and if they see that you have an iphone without a data plan, they have the right to add the plan on without notifying you

    who knows how long it would take for them to catch you...whether or not to take the risk is up to you

    edit: forgot to mention that visual voicemail won't work, and any data you DO use over the network will either ring up quite a large bill, or won't work at all...i'm not sure

    I have been using my iPhone 3g without data since December. There is no risk involved. Just make sure you call ATT and have them place a data block on your line.
