    Default If I only wanted to avoid contract extension...
    Is it feasible to unluck my iPhone just to avoid contract extension with AT&T?

    Only have a few months left on my current AT&T contract and don't really want to agree to another 2 yrs. in order to activate my iPhone.

    TIA,
    Jeff

    yes. but you do need to sign up with another gsm carrier when your ATT contract runs out

    No.

    Sorry, I am a noob at the iPhone biz.

    Here is my situation. I am using a phone now with a small plan ($39/450 min.) plus I am paying $15 unlimited data.

    Can I use the iPhone with this same plan w/o notifying them?

    Well...I have mine activated (with Ziphone) but I don't have it set up as an iPhone account yet.

    I am just using it on my original plan, which already had unlimited data on it.

    Still trying to figure the rest of it out

    and your acct has not been renewed for 2 yrs right? the only thing you don't have is visual voicemail right?

    once you jailbreak and unlock your iphone the iphone is just an ordinary unlocked phone you can get from everywhere else except it's still one high tech piece of specimen.

    NO signing new contract unless you want, just pop in your old ATT sim and you're good to go.

    Btw if you don't have or didn't sign a data plan make sure you turn edge off or edge will rob you.
