    I want to transfer my cell # from Verizon to AT&T on a 3GS that I have in my hands and not on a contract.
    I would like to have a month to month contract since I am bringing the hardware to AT&T and not buying an iPhone through them.

    When I call AT&T Customer Svc, they tell me it is possible. They say to go to an AT&T store or talks to a tech rep. Both the store and the tech rep say this can not happen.

    Now I realize that everyone does not know everthing, but if the sales people (customer svc) are saying yes - there has to be a way to make this happen.

    In the meantime, I can use my work phone sim card to make the phone work, the internet does not work on MediaNet, so I use my wifi at on the home network.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can give me guidance that actually works in obtaining complete iphone service on my iphone!

    You should be able to go into any store and do it. I don't know why anyone would have given the OP hassle about it.

    the only noncontract service att sells is the gophone and i as told that the data service doesnt work very well on it. I could be wrong but that is what i was told by an att service rep.

    Not true... that would be crazy. If you have a older iPhone such as the 3GS that was given to you you can indeed get service with no contract. You are not getting a subsidy for them so sure you can get service without a 2 year contract.

    every at&t rep i talk to tells me i have to pay the deposit in order to get any service. I Have been trying for days to convince someone that i dont have to sign a contract but they tell me i do. The last one said the only other option i had was the gophone.

    Well you may still have to pay a deposit, even on a month to month plan.

    Just tell them you already have your equipment, and just want a month to month commitment on a normal monthly plan. You do still have to submit to a credit check tho.
