    I want the new Iphone 3g S, but I can't stand to pay $30 a month for data that I won't use, since wifi in my area is virtually everywhere. Is there any way to get around this? Such as buying the Iphone with the minimum service, but then cancel the plan 3 days later. Then jailbreak it (once this solution is available), and use another At&T Sim card? Will this work? If not, what is the cheapest way to get an iphone without a data plan in the US?

    If you go with your plan, you'll be paying somewhere around $550-$600 for a 16GB and around $600-$700 for a 32GB.

    I mean you buy it for $200 initially, and then sync it and then jailbreak it. Thus, you can then cancel your plan, but put another sim in. Will this work?

    Yeah, it'll work, but not for $200.

    iPhone = $200
    1st month = ~$70 (cheapest possible)
    Activation fee = $36
    Other fees will add up to around $30 or so (don't bother asking what they are, you'll get a roundabout answer that makes no sense)
    Termination fee = $200

    Steal one. That's the cheapest way.
