    Default Unless...
    If you have a smart phone you MAY NOT have to have a data plan IF you have an old contract.
    I have 5 lines. I have no data on any of them . It is called - SMART PHONE RESTRICTION. They will add it manually to each phone.
    As it is right now the stupid Iphone 4 is designed to not work unless you have a data plan.
    You can take the simm card and put it in any ATT phone smart or not and it will work but you can not insert other simm cards and expect to make a phone call.

    Now on the 3g phone is another story. You can insert any simm card and you can make phone calls only. If you have an iphone data plan you can also take the simm out and use it on any phone + internet.

    You can also try GoPhone or any AT&T MVNO prepaid option. Data is not forced on you on the prepaid plans. My GF is using hers with Gophone, since she only uses data at home or office where wifi is available.

    That's no longer an option. They will remove the restriction, if there is one, upon swapping between phones. A couple at&t reps on this forum confirmed this. And the exclusion can't be added on to any accounts, and was never an available option for those using an iPhone at any point.

    Pretty much the only options if the OP doesn't want data.
