Thread: How do I get a data plan for a ebay iphone?

    Default How do I get a data plan for a ebay iphone?
    Hello all, I have been over at modmymoto for a while tweaking my V3xx. I decided to get a water damaged 8gb iphone off ebay because I have pretty good success rate at restoring them. Yesterday afternoon it arrived, and I got it work. By 9 p.m. it was restored today I called a aquiantance who works at the ATT store to try to add the 20.00 data plan. I told her I used the sim out of my v3xx and she could not believe it worked. She also told me it would have to be activated with itunes and I would have to sign a 2-year contract to get the data plan. Is there any other way around this? I don't even see the edge icon like on my iphone. Excuse my ignorance I have read several posts, but can't seem to find the info I need. Thanks.

    so if u want the 20 dollar plan, u call the iphone activation support, tell them the last 4 of ur sim card on the front and ur imei of the iphone.

    if u dont want it, call and ask to make sure that data is blocked on your sim, if so then your fine.

    but i did hear that using wifi can get u charged for data.

    i just did this yesterday lol, so im pretty knowledgeable

    You can always shitch your phone number over to a pre-paid go plan if you're planning on keeping that phone after the 3g release. You shold be able to keep all you information as well as your phone number but the plan will still cost you about $20 a month, and if youre using your emails and the edge internet ...you're gonna want to have those.
