I am on an AT&T family plan.
I have had an iPhone 3GS since about 2011, and just upgraded to an iPhone 5c.
I still have the 3GS.
What is the best way for me to use this phone with a monthly plan completely separate from the family plan, with any carrier?
Our daughter is on the Virgin 35/month plan. That seems pretty good. Am I hosed because this phone was locked into AT&T, or whatzers?

I currently have the iPhone 4 with the $20/month unlimited texting and the old-school "unlimited" data plan. I no longer want the unlimited texting, yet I don't want to lose the old "grandfathered" data plan? Can this be done? [more inside]

iPhone...first generation used or 3G new, or wait for a while?
A friend might sell me an iPhone 1G for $50. Should I buy that or upgrade? I am eligible to renew my AT&T contract. It doesn't give me the iPhone option, so I would have to go to a store, but that is not an issue here. As I understand, the 1G iPhone's data plan is ten dollars cheaper than the 3G data plan. Over a year that would be $120 in savings, plus the phone being $50 cheaper than the cheapest 3G, adds up to $170 savings over a year. I am a bit cash strapped, but is it worth buying an older used phone for saving that much?

I will be living in Mumbai for 11 weeks next summer. I have an unlocked iPhone 3G. What is my best bet in terms of carrier and plan for the cheapest and most reliable data access? I plan to do local calls over the cell phone voice network and international calls via Skype on the iPhone.
Thanks in advance!
