1. You must jailbreak your iPhone.
2. You can install BossPref or SBSettings.
3. Disable 3G, Edge.
By doing the above, it will not eat your KB on your data plan. I have try it on my iPhone. My iPhone is currently on the prepaid plan.
If you don't disable 3G and Edge, for some strange thing, the iPhone will poll the internet and AT&T will charge you the 1 cent per kilobyte.

Okay, I was referring to the 3G phone. I don't know much about the 2G phone.
I thought that when you put a AT&T sim card in the phone, and sync it, AT&T will automatically detect the iPhone on your account (phone number) and will charge you for the iPhone? If you jailbreak and install those program you can bypass that?

prepaid with original iphone and no data plan?
I have been reading a lot of threads about using the iPhone with a prepaid SIM, but few folks appear to be in my particular situation, which is why I am posting here:
. I have an original iPhone
. Want to give it to my brother who uses AT&T prepaid
. He doesn't care about data plans (will use wifi only).
Can he just put his prepaid SIM in given no desire for data plan.
Or must I unlock or jailbreak the phone first.
Many thanks for any and all assistance.

Though, it may be different with the 2G, I don't think so though.
