I gave a buddy of mine my old 2g phone. It isn't under contract or anything. He wants to give it to his son, but they don't need/want the data plan. AT&T told him he has to pay the extra $20 a month, but it seems in searching that might be just a frontline line of bull. He did have them block the data to that sim, but they said once you activate the phone thru itunes it will override the block and turn data back on. So I thought I would come on here and get a definitive answer from the real experts.... Can he use the 2g iphone without having to pay for the Data plan? If so, what does he need to do to make sure he doesn't have data coming in to it?
