Default Prepaid Data Card?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know of a US carrier that offers a prepaid data only card (no phone)? I am looking to just use a email via a BB, with the prepaid contract.

Thanks.

Agree. Nothing like that here in the US and I have not heard of it available anyplace for that matter. Doesn't mean it doesn't exist however.

There would be a significant market for prepaid data packages. Somebody like T-Mobile could score big points (and $$) by providing this. In fact, they could probably charge a premium for this service and no one would bat an eye.

And, typically, pre-paid phones are sold at near full retail price. I doubt someone would pay retail for a BB with a pre-paid no-contract data plan.
