    Default iPhone 3G Help!!!
    I just got the iPhone 4 so I gave my dad my 3G. He has AT&T, but he didn't have a data plan. He was doing good for a while...didn't use any data or even connect to any Wi-Fi networks. Then out of nowhere AT&T sent him a text saying that they signed him up for a data plan. What's up with that? Can they do that? How can they sign him up for a data plan when he didn't ask for one or agree to it??? Is there a way for him to keep the iPhone and not have a data plan? Please help!!!

    No there isn't a way. AT&T will automatically add the data plan as soon as they find out that it is an iPhone. Which can happen from a day to a week.

    If they spot it it'll happen. You can't really avoid it once they see it. But you could try convincing them (maybe a nice rep will help you) to let him go without a data plan.

    I think the issue is that AT&T forced a data plan on the account.

    Default New iPhone 3G User
    I need some help. My brother gave me his old iPhone 3G but the power button didn't work. So I wanted to see if I could fix it. But When I opened the phone I accidently tore the connector #3 ribbon. I closed it and wanted to see how much damage was done. I pressed the Home button but the screen remained blank. I know I have to buy another #3 ribbon but after doing some research, I concluded that the connector #3 ribbon only affected the ear piece sound and not the display. Then I considered that the battery might be dead. So I tried to charge it but all I heard was a little chime yet the screen was still blank. Could my lcd screen/ connector #1 ribbon be damaged?

    I checked it to see if it was plugged in, but I noticed that the little gold pins on the ribbon look like they're damaged. I'm guessing I need a new lcd screen now. But now I don't hear that little chime or connect to itunes when I plug it into my laptop. I hope It still works.

    Wrong thread and forum dude. Use sn0wbreeze or redsn0w, they both work gr8 for your situation.

    everything sync except the ringtones. Major 3g flaw. Someone here knows how to get new ringtones into a 3G. Don't tell me the drag-and-drop M4r stuff. Been there and done it all. Yes, the boxes are checked. Yes, the ringtone sync is authorized. I need to know how to get ringtones from the PC Itunes into the phone. 4 months and I still have the same crappy ringtones.

    ? Sorry but you're not being relevant to this thread. But perhaps you'd consider using unlimtones from Cydia to download ringtones straight to your phone. There is a huge variety of ringtones in unlimtones

    The only way I know to convert music to the right format in iTunes in order to sync ringtones in. So if unlimtones isn't something you'd like to use, sorry I can't help much there
