    It is possible. Companies purchase iPhones for data only use. It would cost $50 a month I believe. They are trying to aim iPhone for corporate use. The companies IT dept. can restrict phone access and only data. It's the same concept for data only blackberries, pdas.

    $50 dollars a month?!?!? That's NUTS!!!! I thought it would be like 35 dollars a month at most.

    yeah it's $5 dollars above data price.

    So if it was personal use instead of paying $30 unl data you'd pay $35

    I only said $50 b/c companies who purchase it most likely will use exchange email system.

    That costs $45 a month but for data only it would be $50. YOu got the right idea. I don't know if they'd do it for a regular consumer, call and find out.

    Well I just got a ATT referb and at this time I am on T-Mo until my contract runs out.
    I want to try to get my 3g iPhone up and running on ATT without paying 70.00 for the iPhone plan.
    Can I go with a prepaid, $1.00 a day, or go plan, and add the unlimited data for 20.00?
    I know that I can go with a $15.00 voice prepaid and add the 20.00 data for a 2g or none iPhone IMEI but I was told that once the system recognizes tat its a iPhone it will shut me down.
    Is this correct?
    Is there a work around?

    Thanks

    it will send you a text message that says "Our systems have detected that you are using an iPhone with the inapporiate plan, please call 18003310500 to correct this or legal action will be taken"

    legal action, what legal action can they take???

    Is this just a threat or can they take action?
    If I add the unlimited data for 20.00 will I see additional charges?
    Since I am tyring this on a GO r prepaid plan what can they do?

    I only ask this because I am on T-Mo now and had a need for 3g speed.

    Thanks
