    Can the data plan on the 3g be disabled and still keep the ability to text and call? I have wi-fi a majority of the time because i have a iPod Touch. People are telling me that the data is mandatory.

    In order to purchase a 3G from AT&T you have to have a data plan.

    Buy a 3G off craigslist, and use that as a phone.

    Why disable it? You already have it and if you don't want it, I'm pretty sure there's a option to turn it off in settings, but it will still count towards your bill, so it doesn't matter if you disable it.

    You could if you unlocked it.

    Yes. And you can get an EDGE-only data plan from AT&T rather cheaply. I unlocked my 3G at my friends house a couple of months ago and let him use my phone for a while with his AT&T SIM out of his generic flip phone. He called me, texted me, and EDGE worked too.

    You don't need a data plan to operate the phone, but AT&T won't grant you an iPhone contract without paying for a data plan, which is why you need to unlock it.
