    I am wondering if it would be possible to purchase a legally unlocked iPhone 3G in Belgium and then use it in the US, say on AT&T, without the iPhone data plan. If so, would there be any restrictions in usability?

    I thought that AT&T would call people with iPhones on non-iPhone plans and force them to switch.

    Any rep with access to Snooper can see the IMEI of your phone, and the TAC would give it away.

    If that's the case, they're extremely slow. Heck, I've even called their support line where they told me that I was using an iPhone on my GoPhone account and they didn't seem to care.
