    Question Using iPhone 4 without data plan

    Hey, I'm kind of new at this but I recently received an iPhone 4 from a cousin and I wanted to use it without a data plan. I got the micro sim-card from at&t and called them to activated it. When I activated it, they asked for the iPhone imei number. I had no idea what it was so they helped me locate it by dialing *#06* on the phone. Apparently the imei number is what lets their at&t system know what phone you're using. Then they told me because the system recognizes that I have an iPhone, I must get a data plan. I told them I didn't want to use the iPhone 4 anymore, so I gave them the imei number of a non-smartphone without deactivating the micro sim-card for the iPhone.

    So now I am using the iPhone 4 without data and they do not have me in the system using the iPhone 4. My question is, is it possible for them to somehow recognize that I'm using the iPhone 4 even thought I shut off the 3g and data on the phone?

    AT&T does audit on their end.
    If you login with your AT&T online account, it will show you're using an iphone.
    Once they detected that, you will be charged and enrolled in data plan regardless you are using it or not.

    It's their policy with Smart phone. Data plan is REQUIRED, not optional.
