    I want to set my daughter up with my old 3. AT&T told me I could add the line for $9.99. One of the guys said it will automatically charge me for a data plan.

    Is this true?
    Can I avoid it?
    I just want her to be able to make an occasional call.

    Thanks in advanced for sharing your knowledge.

    No way to avoid it. AT&T will soon figure out you have an iPhone on your plan with no data service and automatically at it to your bill.

    As far as I know, if an iPhone is active on a line it must have a data plan to accompany it. No way around this that I know of.

    Yes, like others said.
    Its been like that snce 2008 when the iphone 3G came out.
    It needs a proper data plan on they will add one for you on post paid accounts.
    If you're using prepaid you will be fine.
    If you're on monthly plan they will detect it.
