“Who found you?”
“Who do you think? The APPLE police!”
Once upon a time, my wife wanted an iPhone. I wasn’t about to pay an apple-cart load of $$ just so she could have a fancy phone. Her old one could send and receive calls — all she needed. Well, one of our close friends was selling his old iPhone and he had an idea – take the SIM card out of my wife’s old flip phone and put it in the iPhone. Sure, she’d only get “data” when connected to a wireless device, but once she had everyone’s house programmed – it worked quite well!
Now, I’m not going to exactly say how long we did this for, but let’s just say it’s somewhere between 1 day and 1 year. We were quite happy! The Cell company was none the wiser – and why should they be? She was using the phone in exactly the same way from their perspective. Why does Apple/AT&T need to force a data plan down yer throat? Why can’t the consumer enjoy the other features of the device (which we pay for in the purchase price) and keep their basic phone service?
Bah, anyway – they found us out on this month’s bill and charged us for the iPhone Dataplan… wankers.
