i am going to get a iphone 3G but i dont want the 2 yr contract with it
so lets say i bought a brand NEW 3G iphone without the contract( by paying more money)
do i have to activate the phone or something like that to use it( i want to use it like an ipod + text)??

To use that P2G SIM Card, you will have to unlock the iPhone 3G. That is only possible if you purchase a Turbo Sim. Google it for more results.

Some people have reported being able to just pop-in any AT&T SIM card, and the phone will work, but I doubt that could be true.
