    So I'm planning on upgrading from an iTouch to an iPhone.. but before I do..

    I'm buying an iPhone via craigslist (my service provider is AT&T)
    The thing is, I do NOT want the data plan.. is this possible via jailbreak?


    So basically what I'm asking is, if I buy an iPhone off craigslist and put my sim card I've heard that AT&T do sweeps and if they detect any smartphone without the required data plan, they automatically put it on your plan, but jailbreaking it can help me avoid this. If anyone can explain, I'd appreciate it!

    Thought so. I too am getting a 3g soon just until my upgrade in December, in which i will be buying the new iphone 4. Great way to skip out on data plan until then.

    But.. how would I download that thing without using data?

    Or does the iPhone have wifi?

    I'm wondering. I bought an used iPhone 2G, unlocked through some jailbreak. How does upgrading work? I understand people are buying a 3G iPhone, just to "upgrade" to an iPhone 4 in December? Also, am I able to so too?
