    I know this has been posted before, but my question is a little different than you might think...

    When the Iphone 3G came out, AT&T allowed the Iphone 2G to be used
    without a data plan.

    I just preordered the Iphone #3G S to replace my iphone 3G and would
    like to give my Iphone 3G to my wife but only if I don't have to shell
    out an extra $30 bucks a month for the data plan.

    Does anyone know now that the Iphone 3G S is out if AT&T will allow the
    iphone 3G without a data plan, just as a phone. I know you can use
    a blackberry without the data plan, just as a regular phone.

    Doubt it, considering they are still actively selling the 3g. However, I wonder something.

    I know you can use the iPhone 3g without a data plan and AT&T can add it at any time, but has anybody actually had it added to their account? I've never heard a case of them actually doing anything about it. Anybody know?

    I have used my 3G without the data plan. When I came back from a 5 month trip, and had my phone reactivated, it did not have data for awhile. The only problem without having data is that you will NOT and I repeat, will NOT have voicemail. They are two in one. Voicemail and data are paired together. So no data=no voicemail. Don't ask me why.

    If your wife has a normal phone she can just put her sim card into the iPhone, transfer sim contacts and just use it to call and text.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You can do it.
    Just make sure you block data so you dont get crazy charges.
