Thread: Will my plan work???

  1. #1
    Default Will my plan work???
    After I sell my 8GB iPod touch, I'm planning on buying a 16GB iPhone from Best Buy or something. I will then unlock it, by an AT&T GoPhone and switch the SIM cards. I'm going to be buying minute cards as well as unlimited data transfer cards ($20 for 30 days each) for internet.

    Now my big question is...will it work?? And if it will, will the internet I get from the GoPhone SIM card be the same as just using 3G on a normal AT&T plan? Thanks.

    Ugh, second page and no reply. Really, does anyone have any objections to my plan or not?

    First off, you cant unlock the 3g unless you do it via sim-adaptor. Dont know if the pay plan will work with a 3g....but you will NOT get 3g data coverage without a standard plan with the "iphone data plan" added.

    Also, you will HAVE to sign a contract with AT&T to purchase the phone (regardless of where you get it) and the "iphone data plan" is a requirement. So....you will have to then cancel the plan if your not going to use it...and they will charge you hefty for that.

    Long explanation short, you're better off being shackled to the plan.

    What??? Seriously? So I couldn't walk out of a say Best Buy store with even a locked iPhone? I might just be stupid, but that contradicts a lot of what I know...

    ^^Sure you can walk out with a locked Iphone.....BUT YOU WILL SIGN A CONTRACT WITH AT&T TO DO SO.

    You CANNOT buy an iphone without signing a contract.....unless you wanna get one off of ebay or craigslist. Why do you think they are going for soooo much on places like ebay? Because you cant walk into the store and buy one if you dont want AT&T.
