iPhone 4S for just calls and SMS on Prepaid, Possible?

Hello everyone. 

 

I've been combing through your forums for a solution to my problem and I've yet to really see anything definitive.  So I'm just going to post and hope that you guys can help me out. Smiley Happy

 

I've been a user of GoPhone since '09, stuck with the same plan ($1 daily charge, 10c/min, 25c/sms).  My trusty LG Neon met its demise the other day when it fell out of my jacket pocket and slipped down a very loooooong flight of stairs.  Cracked screen and the ear speaker no longer works (but thats always been a problem with my Neon to begin with...).  But yea.  My sister recentely changed carriers and handed me down her old iPhone 4S so I didn't have to go buy a new phone.  She told me that I could get my existing simcard transffered over to a microsim, pop it in and its ready to go. 

 

Thing is, I'm reading on the forums and everyone says that iPhone on GoPhone isn't supported. But in those threads, everyone is wanting to know how to get data to work in correlation with a GoPhone unlimited/how to unlock/how to do this or  that/.  I don't want nor plan to ever use data on 3G/4G/whatever-it-may-be that is NOT wi-fi.  The only things I want my iPhone to do outside a wi-fi network is to make/receives phonecalls and SMS.  If I have to use data, I have wifi mostly available to me. 

 

Is it still possible for me to use this iPhone for just that??  I don't even know if I can afford a plan change and a data rate just so I can use this handmedown iPhone for phonecalls/sms..  I'm a pretty poor college student as is and need the money for my next top-up. Woman Frustrated 

 

So a little insight would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you! Cat Happy

Re: iPhone 4S for just calls and SMS on Prepaid, Possible?

So if its not possible, then how am i able to use an iPhone 3G with a GOPhone Sim and use it just for calls and SMS? I would like to think but have not tried that you should be able to do the same thing with the iPhone 4.

No one has stated that it's not possible; AT&T does not (legally) support iPhones on a GoPhone plan. Things that aren't supported can not be discussed here. You can use google to find your answer.
