    I am not sure if this has been asked or not, I have searched everywhere, and couldn't find it.

    My questions is if I use the iphone I have now that I bought and unlocked, and jailbroke, and currently use on t-mobile, and I buy new AT&T service, and just get a basic SIM from them, can I do that or will they know I have the iphone and make me get a contract.

    I also was wondering if there is a cheap data plan I can use, similar to t-zones, which I configured my iphone to work with on t-mobile. Would they know I have an iphone and would they make me get there iphone data plan.

    Anyway, please let me know if you have the answer.

    Thanks.

    You can try and see. Do you mean like an AT&T prepaid card? Because that works too. I was talking to my friend and he said he might try that but with the gophone simcard.

    They will KNOW you have an iphone in the system. There is no cheap data plan work-around with AT&T unfortunately.

    ^^^Agreed, they updated my device on my account page within 48 hours.

    That being said, I don't have a data plan at all and I'm not planning on buying one either. WiFi is good enough for me.

    I use the ATT Go phone prepaid on my Iphone. Use WiFi for all my data and web surfing. Then when i'm not in range I can see the network data "E" and know not to roam or I get charged for the data transfer file size. I can call in and out just fine and M2M works sweet to!

    So they will at least let me just get a SIM card, with no contract, and let me use the phone I already have?
