    And if so, how?

    Also, I don't want to get a data plan. Is that possible? I'm in the US.

    Thanks.

    The big name carriers will require that you get a data plan with any smartphone.

    D, I believe the OP is referring to prepaid "Go Phone" service with AT&T in which case the answer would be yes, and a data plan would not be required.

    If you are talking about AT&T's prepaid Go Phone service, yes you can. You can pick from any one of their prepaid smartphone plans. The $25 and $50 plan do not come with included data and don't require that you add one. Here is a link to their smartphone prepaid plans: Prepaid Cell Phone Plans, GoPhone Plans, & Prepaid Smartphone plans from AT&T

    Okay, thanks for clarifying. I appreciate it.

    Thanks a lot.

    Can I use an old iphone that was already being used as an AT&T or Sprint contract phone? The Sprint phones seem to be cheaper online so I'm leaning toward buying my mom that now.

    If I can, I'll get the 10 cents a minute go phone plan for my mom. She doesn't use the phone much anyway and can play on internet via wifi.

    The AT&T device might be possible to be used on AT&T prepaid... and the Sprint device with Sprint prepaid... but you can't take the AT&T device to a Sprint prepaid plan, and vice-versa.

    As Keith said above, a old AT&T phone can be used on AT&T's prepaid network . However, it can not be used on Sprints network.
