How to have an iPhone without $30 mandatory charge
so i have at&t
what can i do so that at&t does not charge me the $30 mandatory "iPhone Plan" charge?
i have had the iPhone for a while now and have not gotten charged yet. i was wondering how i can prevent it from happening. i was told that AT&T has the right just to charge me the $30 without letting me know.
I do not have and iPhone Plan i just have a regular plan.

There are many topics on this here. At some point you could be caught, you will get a text stating that they noticed you.

Thanks for all the help
well you don't need gas to drive, you need gas so the car can run
its the same with the iPhone.
you don't need a iPhone plan for it to run, but you need it for the features that it has

Well AT&T says if YOU use the iPhone YOU NEED the iPhone data plan....

i have been on the plan for over a year now i have used all three iphones on the account and have not been charged yet. but i think it might be over due and they might back charge me.

Havn't heard them back charging you but they may send you a text saying they will charge soon for the future use.

If you buy an iphone or any other smart phone after late sept you can no longer not have a data plan. AT&T will force the data plan upon you. If you call in to have it disabled in a few days when our servers do checks on accounts the data plan will be reattached. Just a heads up.
