i thought there are cheaper 3rd party data plans that i can get other than Tmobile that charged less like $5 monthly.
You have to pay Tmob $20/month for data (which is about $10 cheaper than ATT or VZN). That lets you use their network (EDGE). Some 3rd party software companies also charge you for their data (like all kinds of stock prices and sports scores and weather stuff scroll across the screen). But no email/browser/txt works without the $20 data plan.
