no... wi fi is not charged... hence ipod touch has wifi.. how will they get charged for it ...
wi fi is FREE.... just make sure that you are always connected to it... otherwise it will charge for data per kb...

just wondering.. don't yo have to have the internet plan to have the iPhone?

I don't understand...I pay $20 for 200 texts + unlimited data. How are you paying for each KB? You must have been set up by an unexperienced and uninformed customer service rep. Recommend you call AT&T ASAP. Good luck :D

No. One of my iPhones has a GoPhone pick your plan. I have only 200 minutes and 200 SMS for about $36 a month. No data plan on this phone since I have another iPhone. If I forget and update the weather or something, it takes about .03 cents off my funds available for those 200 phone calls.

I activated it through iTunes this way, I simply made sure I failed the credit check on this iPhone.

@hexonxonx

if you go in the internet by accident then it will eat all the min/$ amount that you payed for right?
Yes of course.I keep WiFi on while I am at home so that this doesn't happen and I only use my regular data plan iPhone while away from home. I mostly use this GoPhone iPhone for texting and for special people who only need to get hold of me such as girl friend.

yes that is why i just stick to att i don't like to deal with all the BS.... i have had them for 6 yrs and i have not had anything bad to say bout them... noting that i didn't bring on myself... like over texting and going on the internet with phones that had no internet plan..
