    Heres a video gavargas and I made showing how I used a GoPhone SIM card on my 3G iPhone for making/receiving calls, plus using the 3G network for internet browsing with the GoPhone pre-paid service. This was done without doing any hacks to the 3G ver of the iPhone.


    +iPhone EDGE ver - has been jailbreak with pwned, uses GoPhone pre-paid service

    +iPhone 3G ver - has no hacks, it's activated with AT&T, runs ver 2.0 (5A345)

    Contrary to what AT&T says you can use any of their pre-paid services for both calls and data without doing any hacks.

    Interesting, I've always wondered if that would be possible. It makes the iPhone a heck of a lot cheaper if you're just looking for cellular data access and a little bit of talking.

    Somehow I would be surprised if it lasted though, considering the price spread on the Go-Phone data packages. The $15 package is less than 100MB, so the $20 unlimited package is a big step up and $10 too cheap for 3G. AT&T will want to nip that in the bud.
