question for the iPhone gurus

the SigO needs a new phone and a new iPod. her employer already provides her with unlimited data (but no voice...stupid) on a company provided crackberry. id like to get her an iPhone, without the data plan/features. ive been told that it is impossible to get an iPhone without data and use it just as a phone/iPod. is this true? any way around it?

thx in advance.

if i recall that is unfortunatly true. the minimum data plan goes for $20 i believe and that covers unlimited data and some other shit-dont quote me ya gotta look it up. then theres your other option; getting a iphone outside of contract, unlocking it and using t-mobile's cheap ass $4 unlimited everything plan.

You'll need to sign up and then cancel and pay the penalty In other words, you'll need to pay full price for the phone.

at&t's minimum plan for the iPhone is $39.95 for talk minutes and an additional $30 for the unlimited data (texting is not included), The $20 data plan was only an introductory plan for the original Edge iPhone

I love my iphone with the data. I use the GPS a lot; especially to get a number of the closest store that I need. I also signed up for Me Mobile which was awesome when business was better, it helped a lot with ebay. The emails are pushed so you get them right away. Check out otterbox.com for there awesome cases. I have the defender case and love it; well worth the $50.

I use it for the forum, school, and it has a lot of get apps.

If you only want it for phone use and ipod. Just get a nice cheap slim phone and a itouch. Everything is pretty much the same except it does not 3g network, phone, and speakers. Maybe other things.

Get the first iphone and unlock it. It is nice to have a MAC in the pocket.

You can always purchase an unlocked Iphone from Ebay then just add another line to your existing account and tell them that you only want voice.
