    Buy any iPhone 3G and you can use it on AT&T prepaid. Just don't buy it from Apple or AT&T because they'll make you enter a contract

    I'm using my iPhone 3G as a pre-paid phone right now.

    You have to buy it from a person (like on eBay, etc.) to not have to enter a contract. It will be much more than the $99, $199, $299 (depending on model) than you will pay AT&T/Apple, but you won't be in a contract.

    Also, if you buy a GoPhone and activate it then use the sim in the iPhone, you may have to wait six months before you can use that sim in any other phone other than the GoPhone.

    In September, AT&T began using sims which are locked to the activated GoPhone for no less than six months.

    Read THIS thread for more on this. You can buy the correct sim through ebay and the link to do that is also in the thread.
