    Default Will this plan work?
    Hey. I'm still trying to figure out which t-mobile plan to get, but I was wondering, could I go to a t-mobile store, and get some sort of plan, with just unlimited messaging, and t-zones? If I can't do it in the store, could I somehow, order it over the phone, if I order this sim card offline?

    Also, I'm confused as to if you can use a pre-paid card for the iphone, can someone explain if its possible?

    Thanks in advance!

    If I understand you correctly you want data and messaging but NOT voice? If this is your question, the answer is no. Data and messaging are all add-ons to voice plans (at least in the US)

    Yes this is possible. You either need a 1st gen phone that is soft unlocked or a 3G sim unlock (or one of the ones that are sold unlocked in various countries)

    Ok. Thanks. I figured that, about the Data/Messaging. Now with prepaid, how does it work, like are there options for data? Can you add a messaging pack to it?

    I think the easiest way to do that would be to go into TMO and tell them what you want. From what I understand though there are people that have data and such on their prepaid. This might be more what you are looking for as you can probably get a prepaid where the LARGE majority of the price is just data and SMS with maybe like 100 minutes thrown on there? The good thing is the minutes you pay for you don;t need to pay for again until youuse them up.

    Ok. Would it hurt me if I told them I was doing it for an iPhone? Or should I just say that my dad is giving me his old MDA

    I doubt it. When I was on TMO i told them I has switched to an iPhone back on my 1st gen and they guy just said "WOW how did you hack that thing?!?!" LOL There isn;t anything they can do to you for using it on an iPhone.

    I have the tmo with my iphone. I needed to get a new sim card Friday and brought the phone in. I added t zones when I was in there. The guy just smiled when he saw the phone. I pay 35.99 for 300 minutes and tzone plus the taxes. tzones works great.

    How did you configure in order to use the tzones? I tried BigBoss hack and I haven't been able to get it to work. I am not an expert in the Iphone so step by step would be a lot of help!!!

    Thanks

    Theoretically, couldn't I use something like this and use a VoIp application to make calls using tzones?
    Or is my head in the sky?

    I dont have my phone yet as i am searching for good plans. I cannot afford much over $40 at the moment though i use about 500 minutes, many of that to a girlfriend. Does anyone know off hand if there would be any couples plans from t-mo that would cost about 40 a month (per phone) and at that rate likely under 300 mins?

    I did nothing to the phone. I asked for tzones and they said it takes up to 48 hours to kick in. I do not need the hack or apn. I think tmo does it for you, mine works great.

    Ok. Question, I just picked up a TMO PrePaid starter kit, I'm working on the activation, can I select the SideKick plan, for $1 per day, unlim. text and data, with 35 cent calls, and will it work with the iphone? If not, which one is better, pay by day, or pay as you go?
