Thread: Data-only plan?
07-26-2009, 05:43 PM #1Data-only plan?
What are the options for getting a data-only (ie EDGE only, no phone, no MMS) plan from T-mobile to work on a 2nd gen?
I just bought a used 3G off eBay, and I've been searching around for getting a data-only plan. I've browsed this forum and the internet quite a bit, but the info is still quite confusing to me and mostly seem to be oriented towards people who already have a phone plan and want to add on a data plan on top of that.
The one site that seemed relative to my interests was this: Cheap Data Only iPhone Plan (iData). | Tutorial Ninjas, but I've seen nothing to corroborate the info in there.

The Sidekick prepaid plan has worked for several people here, including myself. There's a number of topics about it if you search a bit more. It's not difficult to setup and use the SK plan with an unlocked iPhone (there's guides and even pre-made IPCC/carrier files in this forum). You will get unlimited SMS & data for $1/day.
However, there's no guarantee the plan will always work in the future (considering it's supposed to be for a Sidekick), but it has worked for the past 6 months so who knows for sure if T-Mobile cares enough to lock it down.Member of the hackint0sh forums.

I'm on the prepaid Sidekick plan for $1/day, and it's working great

Ok, thank you. I guess I'll do a bit more searching around this forum for threads with the word "Sidekick."

You can also get the Blackberry data plan for $30 which includes 300 messages. This is for flex/post-paid.

When adding any plan they ask for an IMEI, so yeah you would need the IMEI of a blackberry. I had a pearl before my iPhone with flexpay so the plan was already there. The rep would have kept it for me but I changed it over to Web2Go since I wanted a voice plan. On my order sheet it says "FlexPay MC Blackberry".

I registered for my Sidekick prepaid plan with the IMEI of my iPhone, so I don't think it really matters.
