Not sure it's going to work though if your not grandfathered in. Do not call them from your iPhone, use a land line or a friends cheapo phone. I have heard that some people have had luck getting T-Zones but not in a year or so. Good luck as their normal data plans are $40 ish a month now. They do offer a $1.50 a month (1.5GB) for smartphones I believe, but it get's real expensive if you go over that. Anyway, good luck.
What your trying to do is to get the T-Zones Unlimited Web data plan ($5.99/mo). This plan is no longer advertised and most customer service reps will claim it no longer exists. I would recommend stating you have a Razr or another older non-smartphone tmobile offered at some point (nokia ones) and you want the cheapest data plan since your probably not really going to use it but would be nice just in case. think about what your going to say ahead of time to make it a smoother call
Be nice! Remember these people are just doing their job. Again, tell them you have an older phone you want to get full data on and that you wanted to sign up for the T-Zones plan. You can try to escalate it to the terminations department (some people have said that they had better luck w/the terminations department but ymmv).
Small talk and treating the rep like a real, warm blooded person always helps. Remember, you catch more flies with honey than vinegar! Hopefully by the end of the call, you’ll have a your shiny cheap T-Zones data plan.
