    I have 2 Iphone 3gs and my brother gave me his old 2g so I am going to give it to my fiance, but I don't want to pay 30 dollars for the data plan when see don't need it. Can I just order a sim card from at&t and just pay the 10 bucks a month? Or how can I do this?

    Well, in theory, long as she doesn't go on web, it doesn't matter, since thats what the data plan is for. So yeah, you can probably do that, but might wanna call att and to make sure.

    tell them to block data. then you can use wifi and not worry about inclining charges.

    does the 2g require a data plan? If I order a sim card on ebay is there a certain one I should get?

    you could add a new line and get one of atts free phones and then just use that sim in the unlocked 2g. and block data to avoid paying 1 million dollars in fees since you wont have a data plan for the 2g

    But doesn't both AT&T and Apple say that a data plan is required for the iPhone and that they can add it without telling you first if they find that you don't have one?

    Required for the 3G/3GS, 2G has the option to have it or not

    cause most of the things they do requires data and it would End up costing you thousands if you didnt turn off Edge and 3G

    they dont plan on Jailbreaking, you can block it yourself but I DONT recommend it. its rlly slow
