All iPhones/Smartphones you get will have to have a required data package to be fully functional

if you use the iPhone with a active simcard you are required/mandated a data plan, no choice

Re: Iphone 4 or 4s without data package

If you use any smartphone, like the iPhone, on AT&T's network you are required to have a data plan. 

 

If you do not use the phone on AT&T's network, you will not be required to have a data plan. That means if you use the phone without the SIM card, you can just use it as an iPod. You will not be able to make/receive calls or text messages via the AT&T network however.

Re: Iphone 4 or 4s without data package

and am i able to buy an iphone for the money of the contract without using it in the contract? so let's say i have the plan with unlimited text and talk and my own phone and i want to buy the iphone for this plan, but no data, because i won't use the iphone as a phone and only as an ipod. That would be possible?

You can choose not to use the iPhone as an actual phone but you will still be charged for whatever plans you order when you purchase it.
