AT&T says that as of Sept 9, 2009, all Smartphones require a data plan. I have been with AT&T since 2007 (don't think I signed their 2009 Smartphone contract) and have never had a data plan or texting, just basic $39.99/ month service. I would like to get an iphone (actually my brother would like to give me one of his old ones - he has a 2G and 3G he wants to rid of) but I don't want AT&T to tack on the data plan. - Can either of these phones still be used as a phone without the data plan by jailbreaking and disabling Edge? - Can I still use it via wi-fi? - And is the 2G or 3G easier or better to do this with? - Is there a way to keep AT&T from detecting the iphone on my plan and how do I activate the phone without going through AT&T? thanks in advance!
