First you must understand that a contract is not tied to a phone, You can change phones anytime, just swap the sim’s. But again you must check if you ebay bought iphone is indeed unlocked fully. If its not, you can get a TRUE unlock from ht…

Buying iPhone off of ebay, help please!? Okay so right now I use a normal phone with a SIM card and stuff (sony ericcson w810i) and i want to switch this phone number WITHOUT interference from AT&T or Apple (no calling, no new plan, etc.) I just want to change the number and stuff from the w810i to the iphone. how would I go about doing this, if its possible?

my plan I have now is AT&T and has 850 min talk, unlimited text messaging (no data plan, and I can NOT add it) and I think thats it

I do have iTunes, I use a PC with Windows Vista Ultimate, I have an iPod Touch synced to it (if any of this is relevant)

selling iPod Touch, so that won’t be in the picture when I get the iPhone, if activating it/switching numbers is possible.

thank you for any help and information!

Again, I say I cannot add the data plan (parents won’t let me XP) I’m 16
dang =/ ah well, I’ll stick with the ipod and get a blackberry or something XD
