Hi everyone! I finally was able to purchase a used 1st gen iPhone last week. I am really excited but I have a question. I do now want the data plan. So i'm guessing that when I activate it thru itunes I will have to choose a data plan. Any way around this? Will ATT still remove the old iphone data plan? I know I can unlock it and might just do that, but I kind of want my phone to be legit and under warranty. Any thoughts?

unlock it... when you need the warranty...activate it the legit way. If you get your replacement or whatever wait for a week, call AT&T and said you lost your iPhone and get on a normal plan and unlock your iPhone all over again.

you have quite a few convoluted questions...

if you want the iphone data plan just do it through itunes, or you can call AT&T.

if you want to take the iphone plan off, i have no experience in this dept., but if you move the sim card to another phone and then call them to remove the plan.
