Ok so I want an iPhone but I don't want it for the phone. Is there a way I can use the iPhone without having to pay for a service?

No the phone has to be activated to use. There has been threads where you used to just put 9's into ssn to get month to month then stop. But I just read that that was stopped by AT&T.

There are hacks you can do to unlock, activate, whatever you want. IT CAN BE DONE. Check out the wiki's at mmi....

I know I've been "promoting" mmi a lot lately, no affiliation, just find a lot of useful info there.

Eh what do you mean Ramesh? I am confused... Is it or isn't it possible. Its not even like I want to pick my own service or anything, I just want the iPhone for the everything else besides the phone. Music, camera, apps, wi fi, ect. I can't afford to pay a bill for any phone so I would like to have an iPhone just to entertain me.

Don't know what I said to confuse you... IT CAN BE DONE. Check out our (EIC) modding section, or go to MMi and check out their wiki's or jailbreaking section. You'll be able to activate and jailbreak w/o any cell service. Then you'll be able to use the phone w/o the phone. :D

i understand that a camera is a nice feature, if you go a lot of places the touch would be more ideal to store more music and movies, also consider that it is only 2mp and that it will not zoom and it works like crap in the slightest low light...


get the touch and a nice camrea with like 8 mp and zoom...

I don't care how many mp the camera has all I care about is its a camera. I am not a photographer, I just like taking funny pictures with my friends for some good memories. I want a product that can satisfy most of my needs and the iPhone destroys everything. And I also know a guy who can get them pretty cheap. rxmxsh can you tell me the site for MMi because I googled it and I got http://www.moneymanagement.org/

yes, I was touting that, but scandalex said that she tried that, and ATT has "fixed" this. If memory serves me, she had to get a pay as you, pay for one month, and then quit paying...

Well - obviously you won't be able to use the phone function. Everything else should be good to.

As far as bluetooth goes, since the phone doesn't support a2dp, the only point of bluetooth would be for phonecalls. For music, you'll have to use earphones/headphones.
