    You can just pop your sim in and go. You'll get a txt msg shortly after telling you to setup a data plan.

    You can't have an iphone on AT&T without a data plan. I'm not sure exactly how one sets it up now, but when my roommate bought a used 3G and put his sim card in (about six months ago), at&t txt'ed him about two hours later stating that they automatically added a data plan.

    Since they have two plans now, the $15 and the $25, I'm not sure what the default is.

    If it's running 4.1 then redsnow will do the jailbreak for you. If it's a 3.x firmware, use blackra1n. Don't bother with 4.0.x on the 3g, it sucks.

    If you get the 3GS, all bets are off unless the previous owner backed up the SHSH files.

    So basically If I don't want a data plan I can't get it and there's no way around it

    Once AT & T detect that you're using iPhone, they will charge a Data Plan on your account even though you said you don't want it. It is stated on AT & T web site.

    If you have a monthly contract they will add a data plan. If you use an ATT "Go phone" pay and go SIM It works fine and they cannot add a data plan.
