    First of all you're better off asking an AT&T sales rep what your options are.. not a bunch of people that have iPhones and want to keep them. You can buy a different compatible AT&T phone from Ebay or craigslist or where ever you want.. then stick your SIM card in it and call customer service to change your rate plan. They will ask you for the IMEI number of the phone for your account record.

    AT&T will be able to tell that you put you sim back in the iPhone. I haven't heard of them just slapping the data costs on, but I do know they call and say they will put it on. That way you are notified that they are putting it on.
