Hello everyone. I just bought an 8GB iPhone. It has version 1.0.2 on it. I have an AT&T sim already. Do i just put in or do i need to do anything. I heard if i do that they will automatically upgrade my plan for another 2 years. Is there a way to just use my old sim? I do not need the data plan.

I'm almost sure that the only sim you can use is the one that came with it, if you plan not to hack it. You could also if you want to go through the whole hacking thing, use the AnySim program. If you use the phone on AT&T the 20.00 data plan is mandatory. You didn't specify if you were going to unlock and go to T-Mobile...M

Just use the SIM that came with the phone. iTunes will walk you through porting your phone number to that SIM.

Don't bother with any hacking.

Some say that the all the features may not work correctly if unlocked. I also think, since AT&T also details all your data usage. AT&T will see what you are doing. Also, the iPhone accesses data constantly on it's own to update certain features. Your best bet is, just bite the bullet (if you plan to use AT&T) and pay the 20.00 for data. With no data plan and the phone constantly accessing data. You are going to get a SUPER SIZED, bill. You will be paying by the KB at a premium rate, instead of unlimited for 20.00 which also includes 200 TXT Msgs...M

It's fairly simple. Unless you plan to unlock your phone using one of the various methods available (which btw will void your warranty and cause all sorts of headaches with the future updates) you will have to activate your phone through AT&T using the SIM card that came with the phone. You will have to add the iPhone data plan and extend your contract for 2 years.

Good luck on you search, and hey, if you don't find it. You at least have the memories. Did you ever think back then, you would see technology such as the iPhone? Time is moving, quickly...M
