There's no way for us to answer that question. Maybe they've stepped up compliance audits to determine non-grandfathered smartphones that didn't have data plans. Maybe it pinged in the system the moment you turned cellular data on.
Regardless of the reason, you will no longer be able to use that iPhone or any other smartphone without a data plan. There is NO way to use an iPhone without a data plan.

So if I don't use it as a phone anymore, can I contact them to tell them to cancel the data plan?
If you transfer the sim to a phone that does not require a data plan (which is ANY smartphone) you can call ATT with the IMEI number and request to remove the data plan.
