I'm attempting to do this with my iPhone 4S as well -- it does work, though you'll have to change the APN on the Nokia to "phone" (no quotes). Unfortunately, MMS and voicemail won't work unless you call AT&T, and even then you'll have to set it all up again when you switch back to the iPhone. Ugh.

Update: I called back and spoke to another rep who was able to get things working -- best of all, once she was able to get VV working, I was able to put the SIM back in my iPhone 4S and continue to get VV there and even send/receive MMS messages! So it seems there's some trick at AT&T's end to get it working and persistence is the key...

Just reporting my experience. I stuck my sim in the Nokia phone and everything works. However i have a weird issue, people with iPhones who send me imessages i don't receive them, they go to my old iPhone without a sim on WiFi. I guess i need to call At&t

Blackberry phones have blackberry specific data plans
all others use a general smartphone plan.
what is the difference? Nothing, you get the same amount of data it just the label of the plan that is different.
I had a unlimited data plan with my iphone, got a samsung focus S and switched to an unlimited data plan. They said i had to switch from an iphone data plan to differnet plan, but i knew it was only changing the name of the data plan and knew i was going to get an unlimited smartphone plan. Essentially nothing changes.
In the end, dont worry about them saying you need to change data plans, technically you do, but you still get the same data plan amount that you had prior. If they say that they no longer have unlimited data plans available, that is not true, if you had an unlimited plan before, you can have one now, just dont switch off to a different plan.

Also, those of you flip flopping the sim card; iPhone sim is not LTE and each imei needs to be provisioned in the system. Especially if flipping from iPhone to Lumia.
Sometimes there cam be a delay at the switch when flipping the sim
