    You can't avoid the $20 if you want the data.

    And if you have an iPhone, you should have a SIM card. They come with one. Plug it into iTunes and follow the instructions to activate it.

    You just said you wanted an ATT plan? Are you saying you actually want the iPhone running on VERIZON? You can't. Verizon is CDMA, the iPhone is GSM. These are hardware issues, not software.

    The iPhone will NOT work on Verizon. If you have Verizon and want an iPhone, you will need to CANCEL your Verizon account and get either T-Mobile or ATT and activate your iPhone with that. Or you can pay for two cell phone contracts, and keep your Verizon and also have T-Mo or AT&T.

    Your iPhone already HAS a sim card in it for AT&T. You're all set.

    Pay the $20 for the data plan, you'll be better off than paying for data separately.

    Like I said. Walk into an AT&T or T-Mobile store. Tell them you want to transfer your number from Verizon. If its T-Mobile, make sure you have the unlimited mobile internet plan for $19.99 on it. If its AT&T, just tell them you have an iPhone you'd like them to activate.

    Either way, they will give you a SIM card for free.

    You don't even tell them you have an iPhone. You just walk into the store, activate, get a free phone, make sure you have the $19.99 unlimited mobile internet plan, go home, put the SIM in your unlocked iPhone, and you're good to go.

    Then sell the phone you got for free on eBay and make yourself a few extra bucks.

    me and my tech friend are trying too end that..ever heard of a global sim for a blackberry8830 for verizon...its made by vodaphone and he ordered a big stack that will be in next week cross your fingers ...my tech friend at verizon said it should work becuse all it does is give a sim id with verizon phone info on it thus the name s.i.m..so the sim allows the blackberry to hop on gsm when its around,,, i had one but sold it in august damn it...but i will post the results whatever the outcome
