Is it possible with ATT and still be able to use wifi?
Yes it is possible...but just not worth it. The chances of 'accidentally' using 3g or Edge for internet and being charged insane amounts of $ for data are there.
WiFi isn't provided by the cell phone service provider, so I see no reason why it wouldn't work.
i didn't think at&t would allow you to have an iPhone without a data plan.
To make this work...you will need to do the following:
2-Install SBSsettings or Bossprefs
3-Turn off both 3G AND EDGE networks
AT&T will let you have an iphone on your plan with no data...the problem people have is using an iphone 3g and using an Unlimited MediaNet, AT&T doesn't like that and will change your data plan to the iphone one.
Sidenote: If you 'accidentally' use internet even with 3G and EDGE turned off you will be raped financially...AT&T charges per KB.
Any modern phone transmits it's model number along with your signal. So when they see you're using a smartphone without a data plan they pounce on you.
Negative...they see more potential $$ when you accidentally use MediaNet without an internet plan.
They only 'pounce' when you are using normal unlimited medianet ($15) on a smartphone or iphone.
