If you buy the iPhone outright you can put it on a $20 You Choose plan and a $30 data plan.  However, from what I gather the data plan is not mandatory.  So what I want to know:  if you you put it just on a You Choose plan and forget about the data plan then are you completely locked out from using data? (except wifi ofcourse) Or can you still use data at the casual rate?

Ok I've just popped down to the Queen Street store (where there are currently about 5 people already queing) and talked to the rep who stated that indeed you can buy the iPhone outright and put it on a $20 plan BUT without a data plan you will be locked out entirely from using data (no casual data, no nothing, except for wifi ofcourse).

bummer

What happens if  . . .

A SIM ALREADY configured in another Vodaphone GSM phone, setup for casual data, is transfered into a G3 iPhone . . .

a) will the phone xfer data via G3 using the casual rate ?

b) will it xfer via GPRS using the casual rate ?

c) will Phone calls still work on the using the original You Choose Plan

If a or even b, I would consider getting an import.

The 3G iPhone uses it's own exclusive APN.

From what has been announced so far it appears that Vodafone have configured theit network to only will only allow this APN to be used with a data plan attached to the MSISDN - ie it won't work with the new $1 per day plans whether you are on account or prepay.
