What is the easiest -- and least expensive -- way for me to activate my new-to-me iPhone 3G considering I already have an AT&T account but do NOT have a data plan?

I already have an active phone (no data) plan with AT&T and would like to activate this iPhone and get the least expensive data plan allowable.
Is it as easy as removing the SIM card from my Samsung phone, putting it into the iPhone and connecting it to iTunes? From what I understand simply activating the phone will alert AT&T of my change and they will add a data plan to my account automatically. What I don't know is if they will add the most expensive data plan unless I call or visit a store.
I am willing to get an unlimited plan if it makes the most sense financially, but since I live in a rural area that currently is only Edge accessible, I don't want to pay for services I don't use.
