If I buy an iphone 3g do i have to have a 3g plan to use it? Answered

Also can I use it like an itouch?


If you want to use all the features via the phone network, then yes, you need a data plan.

I don't know whether it can also connect via 802.11. Check the specs.

all i want to do is make calls through the network ,not internet
thanks for the help!

u dont hav to hav any plan to us ethe iphone to its full potential.
if you have a 3g on o2 if you get any o2 sim card u can use the iphone to its full potential. ill let u into a lil secret.

pay n go iphone , top up by £15 u get 1000 mins,£30 you get unlimited mins but on a normal o2 simcard top up £15 u get unlimited mins and texts for a month thn the month after u use yur £15 

and when you activate u shud get a signup bonus and a extra for the vat (ends 01/01/2010)  

oh and if its unlocked you can use any sim and still get the iphone to work to its full potential. i had tmobile b4 i used a o2 sim
