    I received the message the other day and haven't received it since. They have not changed my plan at all either. Bold and iPhone 3G both running on BIS data plan.

    What I am afraid of is when I switch from my BB plan to the iPhone plan they will try to force me into a 2-yr-contract

    Don't think they can. You didn't get the phone from apple or at&t with a subsidy.

    I'm not having success with mms working on my iPhone. What should the settings be? I chose the all five presets!

    With swirlyMMS and a BB data plan with unlimited messaging? If you are on a iPhone data plan with unlimited text you will not be able to get swirlyMMS working.

    I didn't read all 4 pages so maybe this was posted.

    I remember reading over at CrackBerry that you could just have the BB plan and then put in the Sim card to the iPhone. The only thing you would miss out on is the visual voicemail since the BB plan doesn't have that. The BB plan is unlimited data so you shouldn't have to worry about it.

    This is currently what I am doing(I had the Bold before) and you are correct.

    Well after reading about a person receiving an $827 phone bill for swapping between the Bold and iPhone after only having the BB plan, I went into my AT&T store and had the my data plan switched over to the iPhone.. Stinks but I'm thinking this is the end of the Bold for me.

    I just replied over there, but yeah, my guess is he never swapped sims for a LONG time. The system picks up what kind of phone you are using. So if you were to switch frequently - you should be fine. If not call and make the switch, like you did. It really only takes a 10 minute phone to switch plans. And the are identical in price...

    Yeah you might be right.. but he made it sound like he was doing it quite often or at least every few weeks.

    Definitely have everything I should have on my account. It's my settings that seem to be off. Something weird happened today though... I entered all the APN, username and password info myself and received an error for the proxy.

    Leaving it should be ok. I've never had issues before. I may have just spoke with someone who was completely clueless. Just want to warn people to be careful. That's all.

    ***And a BB plan will work on a iPhone. Just without visual voicemail. AT&T will say it doesn't work. But it does.
    100% correct. I use the BB plan for the 3G....never had a problem.

    A UK perspective.

    I have the 3G iPhone on o2. Whilst my iPhone was in for repair I used the o2 SIM in my Treo 750 and there were no problems except voicemail didn't work properly, which is not surprising. In fact I'm not sure how they even know what phone your SIM is in.
