    Its required with the phone. Just like a blackberry is required to have the blackberry data plan.

    Im surprised it took them this long to notice.

    i have heard of this happening to people (mostly people with unlocked phones) and nothing ever happens. i wouldn't worry about it as i honestly doubt they will do anything, to me it just seems like a scare tactic. if they add it just cancel it again, for all they know you sold your iphone and put your sim in a 20 dollar gsm phone.

    They know what phone he is using. His IMEI tells them so.

    Just be sure to keep your data turned off to avoid charges.

    Then can however.....if they want too.....just add the data plan to your account.

    We've had a few members get that.
