what to do with old 1st gen phone
My Son has been eagerly awaiting the release of the 3Gs because he knows that he'll get my old IPhone. He does not need the data plan but wants games(go figure)
My question is- do I absolutely have to buy him a data plan? or can I just put the sim card from his old phone into my old phone?
My plan is to talk with AT&T about this but wanted to get some AMMO before going into battle with them.

He already has a phone on my account. will his sim card work in my old IPhone. He is currently on vacation otherwise I would just check.
I want to try and do this without jailbreaking. am even willing to pay for the extra data plan to avoid it. Not a jab to jailbreakers, I am just not talented enough to go through all those steps.
we'll just see what AT&T has to say bout this and I will report back
if anyone has already done this, say when they upgraded to the 3G, let us know what you did.

My son has returned home. we went to the AT&T store and I set up the old iphone as his phone. they even did this without changing his current contract date so his eligibility status has not changed! and the old iphone data plan is still the same price!
