its actually simple. and you actually do not need to unlock if you have ATT. but an unlock does not hurt. Just unlock and jailbreak your phone. Then download BossPrefs and turn off EDGE and 3G. That way your phone will use no data. just make sure ATT doesnt find out u have an IPHONE. and u can just download the right carrier settings to get the MMS

But this does not prevent AT&T from seeing what phone you have. I have heard many people in other forums say AT&T forced the data plan onto their bill if they did not add it. You may start getting texts from AT&T saying you are using an iPhone and do not have the correct data package. If that happens, I would probably add it.
To me personally, it does not make sense to have an iPhone and not have data.

Well they've already told you how to use it on Wifi but instead of Bossprefs you can get SBSettings which has a better interface. You swipe across the bar at the top of the screen and the SBSettings will slide down. If you have a 3G you will only see 3G and you can turn it on or off. You then have to go into more settings, set toggles and turn Edge on. This wont turn it on it will set it as visible in the SBSettings so you can make sure that is off too.
I have been using my iPhone without data since my 2G which I got when it launched. In Canada if you buy your phone personally outside of the carrier's store you can use it with or without data plan. I also have Wifi everywhere I am so don't see the need for the extra expense.
