    They can tell you're using an iPhone and will just change your bill to the $30 a month plan. It won't happen instantly, but it will happen eventually.

    Isn't there like some Fake APN setting he can use to trick at&t into thinking he is NOT using the iphone?

    I didn't think that switching data plans required that a new contract be signed. My roommates iPhone 3G died, so he re-activated his original iPhone (which switched him to the $20/month data plan), and when he got his 3G back a few days later (fixed), he switched back to the $30/month data plan. It didn't mess with his contract dates at all.

    I wanted to know the reverse. If I pick up a blackberry and switch the SIM am I going to get screwed?

    Call and remove the iPhone plan.
