Okay, so I'm planning on buying a new iPhone 3GS and then cancelling data plan. Does this still work? Because I've noticed that ever since the 3GS came out, AT&T listed on their website that "You can never remove a data plan in the future." I want to use the iPhone as a phone and iPod touch, but I do not wish to pay for the $30 monthly data plan. I currently have a Blackberry, but I didn't get the data for it and now AT&T requires all smartphones to have a data plan. So if I'm gonna pay money to get a phone, I'm thinking I might as well get an iPhone. Just plain and simple: I want to use the iPhone without the data plan. (If I have to pay for several months worth of data, maybe even up to a year, then cancel, I'm fine with that.) Although if this method ends up being really expensive and the total is near the $500 price of a iPhone without contract, then I'll probably either stick with the contract or just get a Touch.
