    Can I use my unlimited messaging+data plan on an iPhone 2G or do I have to change to an iPhone data plan?

    My friend went and popped in his SIM into the iPhone and used the plan he had for his basic Motorola Krzr. It worked fine, but the data might not.

    Your carrier might see high data usage and realize your using the 3G network and using a basic data plan for non-smart phones.

    Yeah. You'll have to get an iPhone Data Plan... But then by time you do that, mayswell sign the 3-Year Contract and get a new iPhone.

    use "unlockit.co.nz" to disable 3G/Edge data then you dont have to pay for a data plan.

    You can still text, mms, sms, use wifi, etc you just cant use the Edge to go on the net.

    Well I have AT&T and the reason why I think they would know is because I would be using 3G with an iPhone, but thats why I would get a 2G (also the 1st generation) to only use EDGE, because I don't really need 3G. Would I also still need to use unlockit.co.nz?

    No,

    Pop in your SIM and try it. It'd probably work since the iPhone 2G can't pick-up the 3G signal the company would think your on a regular phone.

    Give it a whirl bro.

    You can also jailbreak and unlock. That way you can get the really cheap t-mobile plan. Unlimited data for 9.99 a month
