I bought an iphone that has already been activated by another guy legally. I bought it off him off craigslist. So right now all the features on it work except the phone/text messaging. So i was thinking since it's already activated.. how would i go about just putting in my old Cingular Sim in and i could just use that instead of doing another 2 year contract? But the thing is, then i would be able to use it to make calls and everything but what about the data? If i would make it so i use my old sim/contract i would need data?
So please give me advice on what to do, or i if should just buy a new sim and activate for a 2 year contract and add it to my existing contract.
The only reason that is holding me back is the 2 years, because if a new iphone comes out i can just sell this one on ebay and i won't be on for 2 years. Thanks and let me know, basically my question is, if i make it so it accepts my old cingular sim, what about the data???
