    So I have a few questions. Right now I just bought the LG Vu, but found out it really isn't that good of a touch screen phone. Not to mention its not compatible with my mac. So I am thinking about getting a refurbished iphone to replace it.

    1. I have a data plan for my lf vu. If I jailbreak/unlock the iphone, will my iphone work for the data plan without costing extra?
    2. Same deal with texting (I have an unlimited texting plan).
    3. Unlocking it makes it work with my current plan, correct?

    Sorry if these have been answered before. I'm in class and had to post this quickly, lol.

    Thanks!

    im not sure about the first two, but the 3rd is a definite no, because verizon doesnt have sim cards.

    Well man, I'm not sure what data plan you are on but the iPhone data plan is $30 a month and I think the texting plan is the same for any phone.

    Thanks, but thats not what I am asking. I want to know if my current data plan will cover the iphone after I jailbreak/unlock. I want to get an iphone, but not pay the insane monthly cost.

    If you get an iPhone AT&T will notice and put the iPhone plan on

    So basically I have to buy it via ebay or something other than ATT or apple. So after I do that, will my iphone work fine with my current plan after unlocking?

    Unlocking is just for other carriers not other plans on AT&T
    if you have an iPhone you can stick your sim into and see but AT&T might change your data to the iPhone data plan because they will scan your account
