Using a smart phone as a feature phone

My wife and I have a shared family talk plan. She uses a smart phone and has a data plan. I use a Samsung Rugby (dumb) phone for talk and text only. I am considering buying an older 3G smart phone to use for talk and text and use WIFI only  for the data features.

 

?  Is this allowed by AT&T? Or will they even know that I am using a different phone?

no, you cannot have a smartphone without a data plan. They may not detect it to start but once they do they will automaticly add the data plan
