Question for everyone, I bought my Dad and iPhone 4 full price $599 no contract and I added him onto my family plan. But att keep charging me $25 for data which my dad doesnt used and say he has the iPhone and the system automatic add it on. My question is; did att document somewhere that if u on the network with smart phone u have to have dataplan? I want to take them to court!!!

If you have a smart phone you MAY NOT have to have a data plan IF you have an old contract.
I have 5 lines. I have no data on any of them . It is called - SMART PHONE RESTRICTION. They will add it manually to each phone.
As it is right now the stupid Iphone 4 is designed to not work unless you have a data plan.
You can take the simm card and put it in any ATT phone smart or not and it will work but you can not insert other simm cards and expect to make a phone call.
Now on the 3g phone is another story. You can insert any simm card and you can make phone calls only. If you have an iphone data plan you can also take the simm out and use it on any phone + internet.

You can also try GoPhone or any AT&T MVNO prepaid option. Data is not forced on you on the prepaid plans. My GF is using hers with Gophone, since she only uses data at home or office where wifi is available.
