    I guess the rule of thumb is don't mess with stuff unless you understand all the ramifications. If you used your current ATT sim and it did not have data, you would be defaulted to the pay-per-packet plan.

    A costly mistake, unless you switched off edge. Use of WIFI should never have ATT charges and you cannot accidentally surf onto the ATT Wifi network without an ID and password.

    If you are already a ATT customer (which I think you are), then add whatever data plan is unlimited and on sale (provided you have bypassed activation). If you add the iphone data plan, and activate normally, you will automatically have your contract extended by 2 years .... so understand your choices.

    Generally the iphone data and the best normal data plan are a wash on price....its the 2 year lock that makes the difference

    Hm, can you be more specific? Obviously, when roaming outside AT&T's coverage area, you pay. You also pay, if you're using one of the for-pay WiFi hotspots, but you can't even get on the internet with these without first paying, so that's a no-brainer.

    So really, if you see AT&T as your service, you should be able to use the internet as much as you want and not get billed extra. If you do, I would fight that.

    Note: SMS is NOT part of internet usage, that uses the GSM signaling channels to transmit the data, which does not change the fact that ANY charge for SMS is a rip-off, because you probably transmit more data over the same channels if you dial a phone number and hang up before the call is connected, and you don't pay for that.
    Note 2: that's likely why there's no IM client installed on the iPhone, because it would allow users to bypass the extremely lucrative SMS system and use the flat-rate internet to send all the IMs they want, rather than to use SMS that cost an arm and a leg.

    I am an AT&T customer, but I don't have a data plan. The data plan has been completely cut off and disconnected and I can't connect to it at all. Would it be okay if I just jailbreak and activate the iPhone and use it without having any other monthly charges? I am also new to hacking the iPhone. Thanks.

    Wrong forum...Try "Jailbreak / Downgrading / Upgrading" and / or "Unlocking / Activation" forums.

    Actually its true. I was charged even though i used my wireless thing at the Kuwait airport during a layover. Even if you switch off your edge through services it would re-enable it again is there is a weak wifi connection.

    That is some serious bologna (ba*lone*eee). I have Tmobile and their $20 internet (just in case Im not in a wifi zone. I havent seen a data charge, ever.

    My Iphone is tripping now and basically a brick since the lower portion of the screen quit working. Brace yourselves iphone lovers, cuz I think this may become a pandemic.
