    What would happen if I turned off my data plan? Would my phone still continue to use the Internet and i would get charged extra ?

    AT&T will not allow you to turn off the data plan on your iPhone. It is "Manditory".

    Your phone has a unique ID number known as a IMEI number. AT&T knows exactly what phone you are using at all times.

    The only way you could do it is to let your current contract 2 year or 3 year or whatever expire then change the plan to one without data and Jailbreak your phone so you can turn off the 3G and Edge network. I don't know how it is in the US but here I have been doing that for probably 3 years now. I've called Fido numerous times and they have asked me if I'm using an Iphone and I say yes and they say nothing. In my case however every Iphone I've owned I've bought for full price not under contract so it was never bought from Fido so it would be stupid for them to tell me how to use my phone. I've been a customer with them for 10+ years whether that also factors in I don't know. Like I said if you do remove the data plan make sure you Jailbreak the phone and turn off the Edge and 3G. Once when I updated my firmware and my phone was not yet Jailbroken I had my emails being pushed to me because I totally forgot just for the 4 hours and 5 emails I received I paid $250 CDN for accessing the Edge network without a plan. So it ain't fun
