The first iPhone had 2G (GSM/GPRS/EDGE) and was really only intended to be used on one network in the USA, even though it did make it to some networks outside of the US shortly before being replaced by the 3G version.
So having a data plan was not irrelevant, but it was essentally useless given the speed of the data.
