Data plan? Nope, not if you're on wifi. You may want to ask whoever sets up your home router if it automatically assigns IPs or if you need to setup a static IP. I'm sure they can also help you from there.

If you have successfully connected to your WiFi network, your home screen should read "T-Mobile - Your_network_name" followed by UMA (Instead of EDGE).

Make sure in Options/Advanced Options/Browser tha the Default browser configuration is set for Hotspot Browser
