Take the SIM card out of your phone and place it into the iPhone.  Call ATT and tell them to add the iPhone data plan to that line.  If you had a different data plan they will remove it and add the iPhone data plan.  The amount of the data plan depends on what iPhone it is.  If it's an iPhone 3G or 3GS the data plan is $30 month.  If its the original (first) iPhone then the data plan is $20 month.

insert your SIM card in to the iphone. but now here is  the catch.  you have to call AT&T or your mom if she owns the account and add the Iphone data plan.

is the iphone active?  if so just put your sim card in,but you will need the Iphone data plan that cotst 30$ a month!! and if you have fami unlimited texting text msg will be covered.

I would call and ask.  Its easier to correct issues now than later if ATT tries to bill you for the data.  You can also check using your Online Account Manager and looking under Features.

 

The iPhone 3G and 3GS can send/receive MMS picture messages.

 

The original (first) iPhone cannot send/receive MMS messages.
