    Hey everyone, I just bought an iphone 3g off ebay and I wanted to make sure it would work...Ok I have an account with at&t...Right now Im using a blackjack(no data, just voice and unlimited texting).
    ok so what I was thinking was when I get the iphone 3g I would Hackactivate and jailbreak it through pwnage tool and just pop in my sim card....then block 3g and edge through one of those downloads...Is that good? Will I be able to use the iphone 3g normally, make calls, text, and use wifi for all the apps...Let me know
    thanks everyone!

    Yes, yes, yes

    No need for a utility to disable data, just create a configuration profile using Apple's iPhone Configuration Utility that sets the APN=null. Or, use the one I created:
    http://patrickvanzandt.com/com.pvz.disableCellularData.mobileconfig
    (just visit this link with Safari on your iPhone, or download to your PC and e-mail to your iPhone)

    "Will I be able to use the iphone 3g normally,"
    Yes, except cellular data (since you said you don't subscribe to this) and Visual Voicemail

    "make calls"
    Yes

    "text"
    Yes

    "use wifi for all the apps"

    And yes again

    Known caveats: you will receive a stream of SMS messages and e-mails from AT&T stating "you are using an iPhone on an unapproved plan. blah blah blah".
