    If you bought it outright you can go to any store and have it setup on postpaid service with no contract. Along with postpaid service you get access to AT&T's roaming agreements across the country as well as a much larger data network.

    You're making your own life harder...

    I could understand going through the headaches for another reason that nobody mentioned..

    What about those people that want to use AT&T and cant afford the $500-1500 deposits they sometimes require?

    Highest standard deposit is $750, lowest is $150. Anything higher and you owe AT&T money directly.

    For those who are living in UK, iphone pay as you go is a better plan to have than to have a contracted iphone. With iphone pay as you go, you can get rid out of those hefty monthly bills, which frustrates you at the end of every month. And you can credit your calling from any general store by buying a top up voucher. So, it won't cost you any extra bugs for the thing which you won't do from your iphone.

    I set up a PAYG account for my daughter with my old 3GS. She mostly texts with an occasional call here and there.This plan has been great as I only pay about $25/week for her. She uses WiFi for data so there was no need for a prepaid data plan. If a person does use a lot of data I don't think prepaid is the way to go since AT&T's rates are expensive as far as data goes.

    Yes but you have got to think most people get iPhones on contract to greatly reduce paying a hefty sum of money upfront for the phone I agree that it's cheaper and easier on pay as you go but if you think you pay £500 for an iPhone from apple on pay as you go or free on contract for £36 a month then people who don't have that much at that moment will think about contract.

    $25/week is about $100/month, which is less than I pay on my regular plan. Are you sure this is cost effective?

    I think he meant $25/mo

    I did the exact same thing. I gave my daughter my old 3GS. She had been using it for an itouch and also had a track phone. I walked into the ATT store in my mall with her iphone. I asked the guy if I could use her iphone on the ATT pay as you go plan. He said yes. He gave me a sim card for free. He asked how she wanted to use the phone. Since my daughter only sends text and never talks, I signed her up for the 500 text /mo for $10. I put $50 on her account and turned off the 3G data in settings. I told her that she can only have the data when on wifi.

    It has been 3 months, she has not had any issues. ATT knows that she has an iphone on the pay as you go. It has been about $15/mo. (she doesnt talk much on the phone). Calls are .10/min

    That was a definite typo, Alli. I pay $25/month. I wouldn't spend $100/month for prepaid.

    I said this in the other thread, but I'll post it again. You will need to enable the correct prepaid data settings if you plan on using an iPhone with a AT&T prepaid sim card.

    I've tried every AT&T profile from Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone on my iPhone 4 with IOS 4.3.3. I'm using a Pay As You Go contract through AT&T. Has anyone experienced this same problem? I would really enjoy data on my phone if possible

    well I just figured it out , so if anyone else is having this problem, you need to buy extra data from att and use ATT(PayG) APN profile and then it will work
