    Hi,

    I recently went to an iPhone from the BlackBerry S2. I've been going back and forth trying to decide between the two but I think I've finally made up my mind! Anyway, I know there is a new iPhone rumored to be released this summer, so here is my question: When the new iPhone comes out, can I buy an old "dumb" phone off eBay for my current line and "dumb down" the plan accordingly, and then add a line for the new iPhone?

    Yeah you should be able to do that, but as soon as you put your sim in any smartphone ATT will throw a data plan on for you, so just make sure that you only use the sim from one line in the iPhone or you are going to pay for 2 data plans. Also I really don't think the iPhone 4G will be that much better then a 3GS running the iPhone 4.0 OS. Just my .002

    I'm just thinking ahead because if the rumors are true about the changes-- OLED screen, better camera, thinner, etc-- I just might not be able to resist the new one. However, these changes could also potentially make the phone pretty expensive. I doubt the new phone will be 199.99 for a 16 gig but I guess time will tell...

    I wouldn't count on the 4th gen being even nearly as expensive as they rolled out
    the first gens. That was just ridiculous. I'd just wait it out.

    Stop.
    4G? Sprint iPhone?
    No. Not 4G
    Probably like iPhone 3G3
    And have fun with the epic phone bill.

    6000 dollars of megabytes.

    I can afford ATT, and I used to be with Sprint so I can say from experience that they SUCK. I mean I know they have improved over the years but I could care less. If and it's a big IF they get the iPhone then that will be a great thing for them, that said I just don't see them getting it. Also try using complete sentences, it makes you look like less of a moron. I mean I really have no idea what you are trying to say, other then "Hey I am a Sprint fanboy"
