I saw the post a little while back about getting a tmobile phone to connect as a modem, and was hoping to use this to connect my carpc to the internet wherever there is tmobile service.

    As far as I know, this does not use your included minute. It uses GPRS time, which I guess is free because I don't see anything where it says that they carge you.

    Plus, they don't have an address or anything to send you a bill.

    Peace,

    So the only thing that you really have to worry about is the minutes on the card expiring?

    Holy fricken crapamoli, it works on prepaid!! Amazing
    I still think my $5 a month is cheaper than $100 a year
    But this way anyone without T-Mobile subscription can get this, awesome!

    The title of this thread should now include keywords such as "prepaid, no subscription, free unlimited internet". Hell yeah!
