    I think AT&T requires you to have the data plan.
    Not sure if there is a way around it thought.

    If you have the 2-year iPhone contract with AT&T, you're stuck with the data plan at least until your 2 years are up or pay the ETF. They might let you drop the data plan when your contract is fulfilled though.

    I have read that you can do it if you unlock the phone, I have no idea if this is true or not. For sure, it is violating the terms and conditions of the at&t service. If you are able to remove the data plan, you need to make sure your phone has no access to celular data, turn off 3G and Edge or put a data block on your phone altogether, if not, the bill you get for all the data the iPhone uses just sitting on a desk will be much higher than the 20 bucks for the data plan.

    There must be a way to do this, but they want you to use the data plan. For there are several phones on AT&T that you don't need a data plan for. If you switched to a free phone, you could just keep the iPhone and put the SIM back in it, right??

    I'm not sure. In theory it should, but you never know when you're dealing with a carrier.

    I bought my 2G on eBay. As soon as I inserted my existing SIM, AT&T recognized me as an iPhone user and upgraded my plan automatically. I don't think that there is any easy way out of the data plan.
