    I use my iPad Mini for data primarily? Can I pick a used iPhone and just use it for voice?

    As far as I know you can't. Cause just like a blackberry the iPhone is always looking to push or fetch something; so the cell providers don't even offer a voice only for any smartphone no matter what kind

    What's a good touchscreen no data AT&T gophone? Looking for something basic, but not a flip phone.

    Check what they call a "messaging or multimedia" phone I'm not sure in the wording.

    Those should have optional data packages

    Can I use my LTE iPad Mini's associated phone # to upgrade another non upgrade eligible line on my account?

    I've used my 3GS for years as a Go Phone, and an iPod when in a WiFi area. Just turn off cellular data.

    No data plan. WiFi only. Otherwise it is just a phone.
