How can I get data on the pre-paid t-mobile service?
What you can do is go to any T-Mobile store and get any plan on a "month to month" (no contract)
if you run credit and you qualify, you can get a "Post Paid No Contract" meaning you would pay for your service after you use it.
if you don't want them to run credit, get a "Flex Pay" month to month plan, choose just about any voice plan and a BlackBerry data plan.. you are under no obligation to keep the service... it is about the closest thing you will get to prepaid.
With the Flex Pay plan, you have to pay your first month of service at the time of activation..
hope this helps.
