is this possible

1) get rid of your monthly iPhone data plan
2) add an unlimited data plan and as long as your with AT&T
3) put your sim card in your "old iPhone"

Thanks in advance

Don't think it'll work. AT&T will figure out what phone you are using, and add the iPhone data plan back on.

Adam is right. Apple will put the iPhone plan back on when they run their account sweeps. They have it in the terms of the iPhone.

Well, I also think that the iPhone data plan is the same price (if not a little cheaper) that a regular unlimited smart phone data plan.

As far as putting your sim card into an old phone, your iPhone SIM will work in any GSM phone. Unfortunately, that cannot be said about any GSM SIM, which is why unlocking is so popular.

**Holy Crap! Has anyone looked at the prices for data on AT&T's website? Data alone is EXPENSIVE.
But it get's stranger still. I went and selected a national450 plan, the LG Neon, and then it gave me my data add-on options. The first one is Unlimited Data and Messaging for $30. What the hell am I paying extra for messaging for? **

I had a jailbroken V1 phone on my old ATT (SIM) Service with a non-iphone data plan

The data plan cost was more than the iPhone before my discount.

I never had a problem.

No Visual Voice Mail though

I had the V1 phone on my old ATT SIM long after the 3G came out and still no issues.

It might work for a while but they r gonna catch up. My friend was using his sony ericsson, with a regular cell phone data plan with an unlocked iPhone (something like 20.00 for unlimited data and text) and one day he got a bill with the iPhone data package. He really wanted 2 keep the iPhone so he had to sign the 2 year agreement with ATT and start paying the 30.00$ data plan + text
