Default Can you get a prepaid BB?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a prepaid sidekick 3 on tmobile right now and I'm interesting in the BB 8900 when it's released. My sidekick uses a data plan which is $1 a day for unlimited everything except calling. Since the BB uses a data plan could it use that SIM card? I guess the sidekicks data plan may be different but I don't know..Anyone here have any ideas?

Tmobile has flexpay and you can use a bb with a bb data plan. Your profile says Verizon but your post says tmo. Verizon does not allow prepaid bb devices and plans.

Alright I'll look into the flexpay. Anyone have any ideas of when the 8900 is coming out? It looks better than warm lava cake.
