Yes, it will work.  It just won't get LTE data service.

Wherever I go,  I have wifi - so I do not need a data plan. The nitty-gritty question is can I take out my SIM card from my ATT phone, insert in Nexus 4 and use it without involving ATT?

Definite maybe.  Per policy, you need to have a data plan, if you are using a smartphone on AT&T's network.  But they may or may not be able associate the IMEI number of a non-AT&T purchased phone as being a smartphone.   At least for some past Nexus phones (I can remember the Nexus One specifically), AT&T could not properly identify it.  For some customers, it was being identified as being a Blackberry or other random incorrect smartphone.  One guy called AT&T and told them it was being read incorrectly, and told them it was a dumbphone, and they couldn't prove otherwise.

 

But no guarantee this would be the case for you on the Nexus 4.  Its slightly risky, unless you are prepared to live with a data plan, or sell the phone if things don't work out your way.

I had another question. Can I get the 25 dollar a month att deal and use my nexus 4 with it? (I solely intend to use the wifi provided by my college for all my data needs, and the deal looks pretty good to me!

Hi pramisht,

I replied to your private message, but yes, you should be able to use your Nexus 4 with the $25/monthly plan.
