    as far as prepaid SMS go, they cost you 10 cents each outgoing SMS. same as 1 min of talktime. there is no unlimited prepaid SMS. it makes no sense as a plan.

    it sounds like you want data and sms but maybe have another phone you use for calls? maybe look at the sidekick plan, i think its $20 for unlimted sms and internet, but no calls at all, and i'm pretty sure you can not ad prepaid minutes to that.

    prepaid numbers can be ported to contracts, I know, I did it a while back, but I think the rep said it doesn't go the other way, like you will need a new SIM for prepaid.
    So T-Mobile's prepaid cards include the $5.99 T-zone plan (that can access the full Internet via proxy hack) as well as the prepaid minutes and 10¢ SMSs, but I won't be able to keep my current post-paid number--is that right?

    I think this might be the way to go for me. I use Skype for most of my calls and while I would still like to be able to place the odd iPhone call or send a few texts a month, I'll definitely be using the phone for the Internet more than anything else.

    hey jacob..

    one thing to let you know about tmob prepaid. they have a sliding scale on minutes.

    if you buy $10, you get like 30 minutes, which 33 cents each!
    $25 gets you 130, or 20 cents each
    but for $100 you get 1000 at 10 cents..

    the other thing, is until you buy $100 worth (all at once, or in parts) they only last 90 days, so pay the $100 and they last a whole year.

    plus SMS are 10 cents to send and now 5 cents to receive.

    all here

    I am using my t-zones on my iphone and it works fine. I just had to upload a proxy file and edit the preferences file. Search this forum and you will find the information you need.

    i can help.. i got mine working fine.

    first on your phone go to Settings/General/Network/EDGE/

    set your APN to wap.voicestream.com
    leave user and pass blank


    the copy this code into notepad/ text edit and save it as proxy.pac

    Code:
    function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
    {
    if (isInNet(myIpAddress(), "10.0.0.0", "255.0.0.0"))
    return "PROXY 10.23.8.3:8080";
    else
    return "DIRECT";
    }
    connect via SSH and save this on your iphone in "/private/var/root"

    next you want to find "private/var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist"
    on your iphone and copy it to your desktop.

    make a backup, and then open the file and search in it until you see
    Code:
    key>DeviceName</key>
    				<string>ip1</string>
    				<key>Hardware</key>
    				<string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    				<key>Type</key>
    				<string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    and right there you want to add this
    Code:
    <key>Proxies</key>
    <dict>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigEnable</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigURLString</key>
    <string>file:///private/var/root/proxy.pac</string>
    </dict>
    so the whole thing looks like this

    Code:
    <key>DeviceName</key>
    <string>ip1</string>
    <key>Hardware</key>
    <string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    <key>Type</key>
    <string>com.apple.CommCenter</string>
    </dict>
    <key>Proxies</key>
    <dict>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigEnable</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigURLString</key>
    <string>file:///private/var/root/proxy.pac</string>
    </dict>
    <key>com.apple.CommCenter</key>
    then save this back to where you got it "private/var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist"

    now you should be able to connect to tzones!

    any questions? pm me

    and the whole thing is also here

    NO, thats not right! The original poster was mistaken. Prepaid used to have unlimited WAP but they shut it down a while ago. Now its just a "wallen garden" of CNN, 4INFO, and ESPN. And prepaid users can not sign up for any data plans.

    As far as porting the number, T-Mo will port you from post paid to pre paid (if you're out of contract). SMS have been costing me 10 (send) and 5 (receive), but were suppose to change to 15 (both ways).

    I will say that prepaid works; I changed to prepaid because it made sense since I was using less than 200 mins and rarely text'd. However, now I want data, so I'm switching to the new $50 family plan (using FlexPay, so I can stay out of contract) and adding data onto that.

    hey i used to have prepaid like a year ago, and tzones was free, but i agree it was a walled garden, especially since you can't get anywhere else on the phone menu, but if you used it later then that, then i think you have the up to date info.

    Davandron, tell me about flexpay? I'm looking to re-up my contract and ad a line for my gf. she needs a phone, but i don't really need to be on contract (i'm out now)
