Iphone question.....

Can you buy an iphone outright with no contract, switch out the sim card with an older phone that already has a data package on it and not have to get the apple plan? What would need to be done to the phone for that to work?

Yeah I think it would work but some stuff like visual voicemail may not work. They will catch you though and put you on the apple plan considering the iphone is the only phone that uses safari and whenever you surf it shows them the browser you use. I dunno if they will check but thye easily have the ability to do that. Worse case they apply the apple plan to you.

How hard would it be to install internet explorer on and not use safari? What is visual voice mail? I like the iphone but the plan I have right now is far superior to the apple plan. ex: unlimited talk and text (between 4 phones) and only $10 for internet on my phone.

They don't have internet explorer for the iphone.

and safari is NOT how they recognize it's an iphone. 8/10 times you will get caught on a sweep when doing this but some...very few.. have continued to get away with it. i was once told, that if ya can't afford to pay for the plan, do you really need an iphone in the first place?

now if u wanna use it and block all the data out and just use wifi when you can, that i can help with. I did it when i went to sell my phone.
