    If one sells there first gen iPhone and places the SIM in another phone in the meantime, can that phone use the iPhone plans 200 text messages? I understand to not get online with this POS phone because it's not the same as the iPhone data plan, but how about text messages.....? Same or different? Can I text without penalty from AT&T....?

    you're not meant to use the sim in another phone

    its highly unlikely AT&T will do anything

    if i were you i'd use the data and texts

    but there is a minute chance they will charge u

    Um, are you certain of this dude? A SIM is a SIM? AT&T doesn't know if you put it in an iPhone or a Blackberry or a GoPhone.....

    The only reason I ask about the texts is because I think AT&T DOES have a different texting system set up for the iPhone as opposed to other phones since it can't receive MMS's......So yea...Does anyone have a definite answer to my question?
