Default iPhone Help

I have a chance to get a iphone for $200, its clean.

Do i have to register it with ATT? Can i use anyone else? Anyplace with a month to month contract? I want to try it out before i ditch my treo.

If 60 bucks a month without taxes is cheap, then go for it.

i dunno if you can do it with the iphone but I can tether my SE w810i and surf wirelessly on my laptop too for that same price. violates all sorts of TOS but it doesn't seem to make a difference to my ability to surf

FWIW, if you tell ATT you dont want a contract, they wont give you one. I think it may cost slightly more but it's hassle free.

Using your phone as a modem with a PC is easy as cake with sprint, but hard as hell with Tmo or ATT. Besides, why would you want to? The awesome 56k speeds?

I didnt know they still do plans with no contracts, im not gonna go search but I highly doubt it.

If you are smart, when renewal time comes around you get in on an employee pricing plan and get that same service for 30 a month.
