Default iPhone 3G

So I have a normal cell phone already, but I love all the extra features on the iPhone. I want to buy the iPhone but not pay the monthly phone bill. Is it possible to only pay the data bill so I can get the internet and such on my iPhone but not pay for calling?

I doubt that's possible.

Get back with your results.

So you just want the iPhone for the internet? That's kind of dumb, just get a little laptop and get an AT&T satellite internet card.

If you want you can unlock the iPhone 3G and use it for your current carrier...

Yeah I talked to AT&T and they said it's not possible. Unfortunately, I dont think I could buy one and unlock it... http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/busi...hone_wont.html

The stores won't let you walk out w/o buying a plan from AT&T

You need to activate the phone in the store before you can take it home.
