    My gf needs a new phone. She has ATT but doesn't have a data plan.

    If I give her my old iPhone, can she use it in the meantime without a data plan?

    She doesn't want to get a new one right now because of the 2 year contract and the fact that a new iphone is likely going to be released in June.

    You have to jailbreak/unlock so she can use it without a data plan.

    for now. They have said that at some point it might auto add it on.

    and jailbreaking a phone doesn't hide the imei from them
