    Default Bill/Charges for "alternate" activation?

    Has anyone had one of the iPhones active for long enough to understand what the ATT charges are going to be on their existing ATT account?


    For example, I subscribe today to Blackberry unlimited and would use that SIM in an iPhone. If I use the iPhone to access the internet (while not in a WiFi area) will my unlimited data plan for the Blackberry cover me or will I see individual billing for using the EDGE network?

    I assume that in areas where there is WiFi, that the phone would prefer to use that method for browsing so I'm only concerned about browsing and charges when I'm not using WiFi. (can I prevent the phone from browsing when not on a WiFi network?)


    any other "billing gotchas"?

    Currently, ATT isn't making any distinction between different types of traffic.
    For instance, you could use your blackberry acount to surf the web with your laptop and ATT wouldn't charge you extra. That's the same for your iPhone.

    Of course that could eventually change. But right now that's the way it is.

    Remember to review your contract, though. There's probably a clause stating that you cannot do such a thing, and you should be aware of that. But that's just the legal perspective, because the system won't charge you extra anyway.

    I thought blackberry connections where blackberry specific - Don't they have a separate data plan for regular phones?
