    If you bought it 2 days ago, you can return the phone and pay only for the minutes and data you used on the AT&T network.

    Sounds like you need to return the iPhone and rebuy an unlocked phone. Then you're free to use T-Mobile's network without contract. It will be several hundred dollars more expensive, but that's really your only option.

    That's bs.
    There is no unlocking software if you just bought an AT&T iPhone 4.
    The only way to unlock is by using a gevey turbo SIM.

    If you stop paying your AT&T bill, they'll send it to a collection agency who will harass you non stop to pay it and your credit report will be ruined.

    You signed a contract - you can either return the phone within the 30 day return period, or pay the early termination fee, which I think is close to $400. Your choice.

    You're on a contract for an iPhone. You CANNOT cancel the data plan, no matter what sim you use. If you want to use a prepaid sim, then you need to cancel your contract while you still can and buy an unlocked iPhone.

    You don't even know how this works, do you?

    You pay a certain amount of money each month for your service. If you don't pay it, your service is shut off, your account handed over to a collections agency, your credit gets ruined, and you will have difficulty getting new service with another carrier, credit cards, car loans, mortgages, or any other type of loan in the future.

    The OP can cancel the data plan by putting his SIM card into a dumb phone for the remainder of his contract.

    This isn't a prepaid service. You get the bill, and then you pay it afterwards (as you would with your water or electricity bill).

    And you can, but you either have to continue paying your AT&T bill or pay the massive early termination fee.

    Can at&t or apple do anything to my iphone if i just stop paying for my cell phone bi

    Can at&t or apple do anything to my iphone if i just stop paying for my cell phone bills?
    Will they be able to lock my iphone or something if i just stop paying or cancel my service and not pay any of the fees? and yes i know its bad for for credit and collections agencies and everything. Would jailbreaking and unlocking it make a difference if they do end up locking my phone somehow?

    To answer your question directly: yes, if it is actually unlocked you can just not pay them, and use another sim. It's not like Verizon that can have your esn blacklisted. I own Verizon, so I'm not 100% sure, but I'm like 98% sure. Now, with that said, you have been warned. I assure you that when the recovery agency gets your info and calls your T-Mo iPhone so much that you can't even make a call, you will regret this. Also, when u try to get an actual post paid phone on contract from now on, and they won't approve you, or make you pay some rediculous deposit ahead of the contract, u will again regret this. So if u got an iPhone 5, on contract(just an examPle, bc if u do this, I assure u that u won't get iPhone 5 on contract) instead of paying $299 for 32gb, you would pay $299 for the phone plus a minimum of $100, all the way to like$500 of deposit. So, yes u can screw them, but in the long run, its you who will be taking the screwing.

    It's an AT&T iPhone and not unlocked.
    If he ships it to another country it won't accept any other carriers sims but AT&T's.
    Unless they want to use a gevey turbo sim but that won't work either on anything 5.0 and higher.

    He is either using Gevey sim or I'm calling BS but presuming TS did what he said your best bet is to call at&t. they will expect you to keep paying them till you do.

    You took out a contract for the phone at a reduced/subsidized price and want to stop paying for it. You're basically steeling the phone from at&t to use it with another service provider.

    Sounds like the op is foreign. So if hes going to leave the country and somehow was able to buy an iphone on contract without putting down a deposit or something, he could theoretically just stop paying the bill. But mostlikely someone helped him buy it because att doesnt just let people buy subsidised phones without a reliable creditors info. So if thats the case whoever helped him buy the phones credit will get hit. Either way it doesnt seem like he really understands the whole process so he can eithee walk away and ruin his own or someone elses credit with att, or return the phone.

    Return the AT&T subsidized iPhone and get the *factory* unlocked, contract free iPhone if you want. I know you are trying to figure out a way to pay the subsidized price and not have to pay a monthly bill to AT&T but there is no way to do this.

    Honestly, I don't know why you'd get an iPhone at all right now since the new one is coming out soon.
