    okay so i'm thinking about buying an iPhone off craigslist.
    but i cant afford the data plan.
    and my brothers girl friend just got a 3gs from my brothers upgrade, (he kept his old 3G iPhone) and she got charged the data plan fee.

    i search some other forums and was wondering what i should do.
    the other forums said that you could some how disable the data plan?

    so i was wondering if theres a specific way to do this, or like a step by step guide?

    also whats a good price range for a used iPhone (3g/3gs)
    i have an AT&T Sim card so can i just use that?
    and does the 3GS use a micro Sim?
    and do you have to unlock via red snow or something?
    i'm not really familiar with any of the snow things cause Ive only had an Ipodtouch.
    -Thanks, Jake

    you only need to unlock if you want to use a different carrier then att in the us. get a pre-paid sim and stick it in the phone, easy peasy, thats what i did (canada though), and a normal sim

    so if i keep my carrier all i have to do is stick it in the iphone and sync and i shouldn't be charged right?
    or should i jailbreak and use sbsettings and disable 3g/edge

    i did that for a while, but AT&T seems to have gotten better at catching you using it without a data plan.

    yeah that sounds about right, just be *absolutly* sure to disable data, or your bill will be crazy, you may be able to call att and ask them to disable it on their side
