    Question use existing AT&T sim w/o extending contract

    before everyone jumps down my n00bie neck for this question, i have searched seemingly everything i can think of on many forums, and the web in general. but, i can't find a definitive answer. so here goes:

    i have a 1.1.2 OTB phone (week 51--i don't know anything else about the phone as it is still in the celo in case i need to return it)

    i have an existing AT&T family plan

    i would like to add a $30 phone line ($10 add a line + $20 data plan) for the iphone. (in other words, i want to use the sim they give me for the added line in the iphone)

    i DO NOT want to extend the contract 2 years for the iphone

    question: which, if any software hacks/jailbreaks will let me accomplish the above. i'm certain the h/w sim unlock will do this. but, can i get what i'm looking for with software only since this is an AT&T sim?

    many thanks in advance.

    Yes, as long as you bypass the activation, the phone will work with AT&T regardless of iPhone plan.

    Bypassing activation will require a jailbreak and replacing the lockdownd file with a patched one giving the phone a factory activated status.

    FYI, you will not have visual voicemail.

    Also, you need to upload 3 additional files in order to enable YouTube. (very easy to do once jailbroken)
