Your best bet would be to call t-mobile, but you should be able to find your answer around here. But from looking at the website, it does not look like they offer a pay as you go plan. But, they have a $30.00 Blackberry Internet Service that is the same price as the Sidekick plan

no prepaid plans yet. Smart access (which I'm currently on because my credit is in the crapper) has BIS access for a 19.99 add-on to a voice plan, or 29.99 data only. T-mo is having issues adding the BES unlimited package for 39.99. I'm trying to use Exchange My Mail, but T-mo cust support says there is no smart access BES add-on (even though the plan is under 50.00)

Sure

What i have right now is 29.99 a month for unlimited data on BIS (Blackberry Internet Service). This includes truly unlimited (no mb cap) data for email, internet browser, etc. Currently I have to sync with outlook by cable

What I'm trying to do is get a BES(Blackberry Enterprise Server) unlimited plan for 39.99 so I can use www.exchangemymail.com to wirelessly(like the sidekick does) sync with outlook. Also, by going through a backend server, internet browsing should be a mite faster as well.

that's smart access. no additional lines for a year, your core plan can't exceed 50.00 a month, and you have a 150.00 spending limit

You should try and see if you're eligible. my gf had zero credit history pretty much, and they hooked her up

To be honest friend, you are better off sticking with your SKII.

Just because you like them does not mean they are the proper tool for you.

It's all about what's important for your needs. what do you like about the BB versus the SK2
