    Hey folks.. here's my question:

    I currently carry two phones. A normal, plain jane flip phone that my employer provides on AT&T and an iPhone on a personal plan. If I put my non-iPhone / non-data plan SIM card into my iPhone.. will I be able to do everything with the exception of data? (unless on wifi)

    I'm thinking voice and text should still work? Anybody tried it?

    Text and voice will work.
    Data might also work unless that account has a block on data. If it doesnt data will go thru and then you will be charged per KB used.

    Hey I just called ATT and they said a data plan would automatically be charged to the account of the new SIM card.. can anybody confirm or deny that?

    That's false. They will not add a data plan without your consent.

    They will send you a text message asking you to call them once you start using enough data to catch their eye. I used a non iphone sim for a few days and never got one. But I've heard of people getting one within a few hours.
