    If I buy an iPhone 3g From A friend..is there A way to buy the $30 data plan but no phone plan so it keeps it at $30 a month?

    If I get a 2g can I get the old $20 data plan and no phone plan?

    basically I'm trying to get an iPhone with monthly bills for under $50/mo

    Thanks!

    (sorry for any typing errors...on my iPod touch.

    As far as I know you cannot get a data plan without a phone plan. You could easily call AT+T and ask but I wouldn't tell them your intentions.

    If you use the 3G on their (AT+T) network they will want there money. I tried using my old plan on my new 3G and within 24 hours I had multiple emails and texts from AT+T telling me to cease use of the 3G or I would be charged. I wanted to use the 3G but they would not add the data plan without the contract.

    Here's my only thought for you: get the iphone (might be able to do this with the 3G, but I am not certain) and get a GoPhone plan. If you don't use the phone you won't be charged much. You can get a 100 MB data plan for $20 a month. I thought I would blow through 100MB way to quick but I have not had a problem going over.
