    Two ways to do this:

    Old iPhone, activate it via iTunes and insure you fail the credit check. You will be offered the GoPhone plans.

    or

    Buy a Cheap GoPhone and activate it. Take any iPhone including 3G and make sure it is activated. Place the GoPhone sim in the iPhone and now you have a GoPhone iPhone. If you have the 3G iPhone, the 3G service will work perfectly since all that is required to get 3G service is a 3G phone.

    It would be very expensive and eat up all your minutes in a matter of seconds. Loading one webpage could cost $5+ depending on how many graphics are on the page, several dollars just to load a Google map. Keep doing that and you won't have any account balance for phone calls.
