I am currently with At&t & not under contract and would like to purchase an iphone from ebay and use it on my At&t network without paying for a data plan. What should the iphone listing say to make sure it's compatible and how do I make sure I'm not paying for a data plan? I want to use the phone purely to text and call and do not care for other features such as internet. Thanks

not going to happen on a normal account, data is required for any smartphone, if you don;t add one, one will be added automaticly. You try try prepaid sims, while they do work, you are on your own to get it working - att will not supply any assistance

why do people keep asking this? its been posted a million times. you can not use the Iphone for text/calling only. must have the DATA plan..quit being cheap and pay for the complete service required to own a smartphone.

My above post is only for Pre-Paid service only. If you plop your sim card into any smartphone using your current acct, they will automatically add that data package. Evil
no, conditions for utilizing a smartphone - not evil in the least just the contracts that the majority of people do not read before they sign
One thing you forgot to mention on your above post - if problems occur do not try and call the carrier becasue it is not supported and they will not supply any technical support, you are on your own to find the resolution to the issue

You've got to go prepaid if you want the privilege of using an iPhone without a data plan. I'm currently using an iPhone 4 on a $25 monthly plan with NO data plan. I also had a 3GS working on this as well.
This is the correct answer to using an iPhone on AT&T without a data plan. I have both of my kids using my old iPhone 3GS and 4 on AT&T's prepaid service without a data plan. When they need data they simply use WiFi when it's available.

It seems that almost ALL of the rest of the WORLD can get an Iphone or Smartphone and use it as they wish. Freedom of the marketplace and Freedom of choice. But only in a very few countries is there a monopoly on what technology you can use and where you can use it. The USA of "freedom" is one of those countries. Call your congressman and urge all AT&T competitors to start offering Smartphones without the obligatory data plan. FREEEEEDOMMMMMM!
