    well according to At&t all smart phones require a data plan however since T mobile's 3g and at&t 3g work on different spectrum so you may not require a data plan

    To switch an ATT sim card into a T mobile phone or vise versa the phone has to be unlocked.

    Many places will do it for you if you ask and bring the phone in however, some charge.

    You cant get away with having a smart phone without the data plan. I tried this and AT&T immediately recognizes that you've changed your regulair phone to a phone that requires a data plan and charges you more. They did it to me without notice. This is especially shitty because if you have a t mobile phone and you do the same thing t mobile wont charge you data :/

    Anyways hope that helps(:
