If I gave my old iphone (3GS) to a friend of mine and he already has an ATT wireless voice only account will he be able to activate the iPhone without the data plan? He doesn't want to access the internet or get emails over the cellular network - he'll do that over wifi.
iPhone 3GS, iPhone OS 3.1.3

AT&T requires a data plan with ALL iPhones. When activating, the IMEI of the phone is transmitted and identifies it as an iPhone.
