Default Blackberry Prepaid Plans?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all,
Do any of you know of any prepaid plans that one could use with a blackberry? For example, with tmo's prepaid service, they offer something called sidekick data (or something to that effect) where at an extra $1 a day, you get ultd data, and text. I have been told that even if you claim your bb is a sidekick and sign up for the plan, the only feature that would work is the texting.
So are any of you aware of some gsm prepay plan that supports blackberrys?

Thanks all!

AFAIK no carrier offers Blackberry data with prepaid plans.

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of... I'm not sure why the $1 tmo unlimited internet (sidekick) plan won't work with bb s... someone should start up a company!
I'm surprised that no carrier seems to offer it...

No non-Blackberry data plan will work with a BB.

The BB dataplan routes everything via RIM servers I think and that is the difference. Probably has to do with security is my guess.
