    Yes if you want it activated with AT&T. No if you want to pay $599/$699 for a glorified iPod Touch

    More information.

    I guess you can cancel the data plan after 30 days.

    Not sure about the US, but I bet no, and some people are just retarded.

    I currently have a tmobile sidekick unlimited minutes loyalty plan w/ unlimited data $85/month taxes included. If I buy an unlocked iphone, will I have to change my plan and pay more?

    ^no, but if you get a 3g and your tmobile plan is for 3g speeds you won't get them (essentially wasting your money).

    Can you even use it as a phone without the data plan? Why would you even want it without the data plan? Just get an iPod Touch.

    I don't think you can use any other plan than an Iphone plan. They have specific plans just for the iphone and from what I remember you couldn't skip out on the data plan. I have heard of people calling a few months after and saying they got a different phone, etc. But then I would imagine your visual vm wouldn't work, and an iphone without the data plan is kind of pointless.

    I just got a 3Gs iPhone and I can tell you it's pretty worthless without the data, it's sort of what makes it great. I can honestly scrap my computer if I had to. I've had a bb for the last year or so and hands down this is the best mobile web experience I've had of every phone I've ever used
