hey guys if my friend gets me an iPhone 3g or v1 brand new off ebay w/o a contract....how will I transfer my number to that phone.....Im under a 2 year family plan with unlimited msg through att.......would I just call att and add the $30 data charges?
If you already have AT&T all that is required is that you sign a new 2-year contract. If you get a v1 iPhone, this could be done through iTunes and I don't know about the 3G version since they are only activating it at the stores.
No. It doesn't work like other phones. If you get an unlocked first gen iPhone you can just slip in your sim card. If it is not unlocked then you'll need to go by AT&T to get a new sim card. You want get a 3G off eBay because anyone that has one just signed a new two year contract.
