    Now that the iphone has been out for almost 2 years, what happens to the iphones that arn't being used anymore...

    Say someone leaves at&t and goes with a different phone and service.


    Will the iphone be left unusable seeing as how it has a cancelled service or can it still be used as a ipod (without jailbreaking it)

    the iphone will require activation if you want to use it. You can bypass this activation if you jailbreak the phone. Allowing you to use the ipod features when you, and the wifi.

    Well, until Apple/at&t setup a legal means of unlocking the phone (which should be next year) there won't be a problem. But for now, you are SOL, unless you come back to at&t.

    I guess your right it is kinda the same. But i wasnt even asking about the one i have. I was just wondering if by default. Once your contract is up and you no longer use the phone if it will permantly go to an ipod automatically intill another sim card is put in
