    So pretty much my phone plan is up, so im going to get the 3G. Right now im on a family plan. My question is this, if i buy the 3G through at&t with them activating it and i wait until after 30 days and cancel the plan, yes paying $175 doing for the early termination fee, will i be able to return to my old data plan with my old sim card to be back on the family plan? i just dont want to pay the $30 monthly fee. any ideas would help. Thanks in advance.

    , be more clear.
    You want to be back on the family plan, but with another phone?

    That's what im wondering. If i was to cancel my plan with the iphone, i would have an unlocked activated iphone, so would i be able to put my old sim card in the iphone and sign up for a plan back on my family plan, just using the iphone instead? I have no idea if this even can work, im just wondering if i can get around the $30 iphone plan. Sorry if it is a little confusing.

    I'm not very good with the plan thing, but i've heard of some one in this site that did the same thing, but his was pay as you go.
    Either way it'll work.

    The iPhone 3G has yet to be unlocked.

    Some sites claim they can unlock the phone with a turbo sim card, but I have had friends who tried this and it did not work.

    The only way to use another sim card would be to have the iPhone unlocked. You will not be able to use a previous sim card in an activated 3G iPhone that was activated with a specific SIM card.

    You don't know what firmware the iPhone came with after your purchase?

    Well, I would suggest simply putting your iPhone into DFU and restoring to 2.1. Then use Quickpwn 2.1 to unlock.
