Will this work? 3g -> give to son
I currently have an iPhone 3g (non-jailbroken) , I want to get a new 3gs and give the 3g to my son (who currently does not have an iPhone).
I have 5 total phones on my family plan and have an unlimited family data plan.
My question is, can I jailbreak my current 3g phone and let my son use it
with his SIM card? I'm not interested in another $30 data plan.
Will this work?

You don't need to jailbreak it. It'll work just fine. I did the same thing.
I remember having to use the unlock it api or something like that (do a google search) in order to get the cellular data to work on my kids iphone. It'll work for a while until either ATT realizes you have an iphone on non-iphone data plan, which worse case scenario they'll automatically sign you up.
Or like my kid, he'll loose at it at school somewhere because "it must have fallen out of my pocket" and it'll never be seen again. And then get stuck using his old phone again. Kids these days....

Not true, if u jailbreak your phone and download bossprefs and turn off Edge and 3g, att has no way of knowing the phone is an iphone, because ur not using data. You can still use wifi, i know plenty of people who have been doing this for years with no problems. good luck

Just b/c it hasn't happened to any of your friends doesn't mean that it doesn't happen.
