Used Iphone 3g - advice on jailbreak and dataplan
I just bought a slightly used Iphone 3g from Craigslist seller, I'm currently with AT&T and don't want to have a data plan. I'm going to jailbreak the phone, I need somebody's advice on the following questions since I'm a newbie :
1. Keeping my current plan, coz i got wifi at work and home. Will AT&T know that I have an Iphone if I jailbreak the phone.
2. Jailbreak Iphone - will it still work with Itunes? I don't know how to use itunes with Iphone (no experience yet)
3. Will there be issues if Iphone is jailbroken with Itunes such as purchasing music or ringtones?

@1 - You might have to change plans when activating the phone. I think that AT&T requires a data plan. AT&T will not know that you have a jailbroken iPhone unless you bring it in for repair and do not restore to the latest firmware.
@2 - It will still work with iTunes.
@3 - No issues are present.

My wife had a centro prior to switching her over to the iPhone with no data plan. Before I switched her SIM over to the iPhone, I called customer service requesting to block all data which they did (free service) since she doesnt use data and I mentioned I dont want her accidentally using data which would cost an arm and a leg. After I verified online that the block was in place, I switched her SIM over to the jailbreaked iPhone. Works well! She uses wifi at home and work for data. I believe AT&T does know she is on the iPhone since our online account shows her phone model as the iPhone. Its been 3 months now, and no issues. Without wifi she cannot connect to data driven services at all.

i have been reading of people trying to avoid paying for a data plan with the iPhone and then getting txt messages from at&t telling them they need to purchase a data plan. you may get lucky, but they know which phone you are using unless you switch the imei number. but thats a whole new ball game.
