Absolutely not. If you want to have internet service on your phone, you WILL pay.

Let me assure you that if there were, it would be all over these forums. Folks are paying up to $45 a month just for data plans.

More than that if they are Cingular customers with unlimited int'l add-on or VZW with unlimited tethering.

If you get a phone plan with your data plan through T-mobile you only pay $19.95/month for unlimited data service. when i say unlimited i should add in there that if you get the tmo plan, you can get the instant messenger program from their website, it has AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, and MSN all in one, and you do not get charged for an SMS when you send IMs
