I am currently using an AT&T Pantech Link II feature phone. I am one of the added family members on my parent's voice-only plan. Adding features to the plan at this point isn't really an option.
Alright, with all that out of the way, I am very interested in the new Nexus 4. As it is an unlocked GSM device, I am planning on taking the SIM from the Link II and putting it in the Nexus. I plan on turning off data use in the Nexus, and using google voice for my texting. Can someone tell me for sure if this will work? My main concerns are the SIM being somehow "locked" to the old phone.

The problem you're going to have is that the Nexus is a smartphone. All smartphones are required to have a data plan, whether you want it or not. If they detect the smartphone on your line they'll add the data plan automatically. Turning off data will not remove the requirement for a data plan.
