    hey guys i was wondering if i currently have an iphone 3g, and plan on switching to att, could i just get a att voice plan with internet on a regular phone and then put that sim in the iphone?? Would that work the internet work on the iPhone? I understand it wont be at 3g speeds but would i have internet service?

    No, you'd need a data plan, otherwise your bill would be sky high.

    yea i mean if i bought a data plan for like a phone thats not an iphone, would the internet work on the iphone?

    Another question:
    Say i bought a tmobile plan with a data plan. If i used an unlocked iphone, would i be able to use the data plan on the iphone?
    Any idea about tethering using 3.0 with tmobile? Att usually charges 30 bux but i hear tmobile is free?

    People say that you need a data plan, but I did a sim swap when I first got the phone. The process went like this.
    Get iPhone 3G.
    Call AT & T 2 days later saying that I lost my iPhone, would like to switch the data plan to a regular phones medianet for $15 a month. They said sure, and I needed to give them a regular (non-smart) phone IMEI. I gave them some LG flip phone's IMEI, and everything was fine. They still had me listed as an iPhone 3G so I kept getting an email once a month saying my data plan was wrong, but I checked all the data usages (once even 22mb downloaded at once from Cydia) and it said, 22mb, $0.00 on the bill. Paying $15 a month, happy as a clam.
    They don't really audit phones, so it's not a real problem.
