Thread: New to the site, and iphone..

Have a couple questions about the iphone.
i currently have at&t and just bought a unlocked iphone with firmware 2.0.2
now, i dont want to add the iphone plan because it will make me extend a contract, which makes no sense.
can i just add a unlimited data plan and use it with the phone?
and another question, are there any stickies/thread were it shows me how to load apps to my iphone, specifically to my firmware version?

NO, you have to have the iphone plan to have the iphone. In a few days they'll reset your account to an iphone plan and charge you $1200 in data charges because the iphone always works in the background even when asleep. If you're sim is in right now......... you're using data......and they know.
there are plenty of guides in the wiki up top.

well, i was saying if i added the unlimited data plan via att, not the iphone specific one would it work?
And i haven't switched over yet to the new phone as its not here yet.

I can quote myself, but it isn't going to change the answer to suit you any more.

well ill take your work for it.

what he meant is, you can have whatever plan you want to get for your unlocked iphone BUT once your IMEI registers with the network and they see you're using an iphone, they will switch your plan over to an iphone plan. not sure about the data charges as you said you would have an unlimited data plan but either way, you will most certainly be put on an iphone plan even if you don't want to

thanks for clearing that up..im part of a family plan were im one of the add-on plans..so i dont need minutes and whatnot..i called att to ask and they said the plan was only 20$ and came with 200 sms messages, is this right? it would only be 9.99 + the 20$ iphone data plan? (apart from the main line which has all the minutes.)
