The folks over at BGR say they have solid new info, re-iterating some recent rumors that Apple is set to launch a less expensive iPhone option to costumers, supposedly alongside the successor to the iPhone 4.
Since its been over a year since Apple has released new iPhone hardware, rumors regarding Apple's next lineup of smartphones have piling up over the past weeks. Now BGR has info from "an incredibly solid source" that Apple will launch an iPhone that would retail (without contract) for $350.
That price is significant, as Apple's only unlocked option in the US the iPhone 4 which retails at $649 and $749. BGR says that Apple may decide to continue to make the iPhone 3Gs available to customers, possibly along with the iPhone 4 AND iPhone 4S/5.
BGR also adds their own confirmation that the iPhone 5 will feature a "radical new design" however their is some skepticism to that piece, I'd say we'd already have seen cases that out the new design (like it did with the iPad 2). We'll take that particular rumor with a healthy grain of salt.
If this all turns out to be true, Apple's smartphone success could skyrocket in the coming months, as they would offer high, mid, and low-end smartphone models. If you sprinkle-inn some of the rumors that Apple will offer the iPhone on Sprint and T-Mobile, Apple may be poised to completely dominate the American smartphone market, not to mention the possibility that U.S. Consumers could finally be able to affordably switch carriers with much greater ease.

My dad really wants an iphone without a data plan do u think they might make an iphone that doesnt need a data plan. My dad doesnt want to pay the 15 a month for something he doesnt use He just wants the phone itself just to make calls. My dad only wants an iphone nothing else.

They will add a data plan if you drop your sim in an iPhone, and to be honest their is no reason to have an iPhone if your not going to use data. It's made for the Internet ya know.

He could say buy an iphone outright and get a cheaper/free phone activated and pop the sim in from the cheaper phone to the iphone...
But that'll still be odd because almost everything the iphone does other then calls uses data as a backend...
I remember back in 2007-08 I had the opposite going on I had an iphone on go phone and when I stopped paying it they left the unlimited data on even tho it couldnt make/receive calls
lol I swear non of those posts where there b4 i typed my response anywho looks like matrixhunter hijacked the thread

iphone ithout data plan
All you weirdos out there who think a data plan is NEEDED on the iphone or it is no good do not think About other peoples needs or wants. Some of us just use data on wi-fi anyway and paying for data is a waste!

You work at AT&T and believe that once you drop a SIM into an iPhone it activates a data plan. You're indicating how much of a tool AT&T really is.If I helped you in any way, please click on the button!
