The title doesn't make much sense, but here's the deal. I went to buy the iPhone from apple, I have the upgrade eligibility and all, but I'm on a family plan, so in order to get it at the 299 price, I would need to be put on my own plan and that was out of the question. I have a friend who will be getting AT&T soon, and he plans to get the iphone for the 299 price and give it to me. My question is: Will the iPhone work on my plan with my 3G Sim card(I've heard yes's and no's) and will my friend be able to use a different phone with his same 3G Sim card? I don't see why this wouldn't be possible, considering you can upgrade your current plan at the higher price. Sorry if I am being unclear. Thanks for any help. ------------------double post merged------------------Update. Is the upcomming quickpwn soft-unlock going to make this possible?
