    I'm in the process of dumping my Sprint Treo and going with an unlocked one I bought from E-bay. I'll be using it with T-Mo's prepaid voice plan, and I'm trying to figure out the deal with data, which I won't use much.

    Is the free T-zones plan useful at all for checking Pop3 e-mail or using Blazer (I know there's some configuring for a proxy server involved), or do I need to step up to one of the paid t-zones plans?

    Thanks!

    I hate to sound like the noob I am, but I have not been able to do this with my 650. Everytime I try to get online, the splash screen says "connecting to Tmobile VPN", signing on--and then cancels. This is the same plan I had with my Nokia 3660, and I connected fine with it. Any suggestion would be appreceiated

    Verichat is a free program (hacked by somebody). I have also been able to access TZones without paying a dime. I also use PDAConnect with my laptop to browse the internet. The only downside I have is that I can only connect at 57.6kbps. But, believe me...I dont complain.

    Ms. Butterfli and IceMike, can you tell me whether you had to implement some kind of workaround to get to anything with T-Zones? I can connect to the T-zones network, but I can't do anything with it, probably because of port blocking. I use Eudora for mail, and it doesn't have a port setting. Neither does Blazer, apparently.

    Update: Just called T-Mobile, and the rep told me that they don't have any internet plans available to those who aren't getting a monthly bill (like me - I have prepaid).
