New IPhone 7.

New IPhone 7.

My daughter is currently on my data plan. Can I purchase her a new IPhone 7? Just the phone and no data plan? And if so shouldn't the new phone be less expensive w/o the accompanying data plan?

Re: New IPhone 7.

The only way to use any smartphone on ATT without a data plan is on prepaid. If you have postpaid service, a smartphone must have a data plan. If you have a shared data plan and your daughter is already on it, you are covered.

Re: New IPhone 7.

But yes you can go just buy a phone.  

When paying full price, go to Apple or Best Buy and buy the unlocked, or Verizon version.

Re: New IPhone 7.

So if I walk in and say "I need an IPhone 7 w/o a data plan there should be no problem?

Re: New IPhone 7.

Don't say anything about a data plan. If you are wanting the iPhone to replace your daughter's current phone, just say that.

If you put her on a smart phone and she doesnt have a data plan it will add one unless she is on prepaid.
