Hi I'm new here. I'm on a old $25 service plan with T-mobile (Nationwide T-Zone Talk & Text 300). I get spotty coverage in the house, and originally I was just looking for a dumb phone with wifi (like the Samsung T-339). Then the HP fire sale... I ordered an unlocked Pre 2 yesterday from HP and it tracking is showing that it will be here tomorrow. I figured that I would have some time to get up to speed before it came based on the touchpad debacle. I checked tracking number and its on route and scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. So like much my college life I'm having to cram. I read through the sticky and another thread on t-mobile, but I still had a few questions:
1. The big thing is how do I turn data off and only use wifi. While my current t-mobile plan has data and its a whopping 1MB
2. I understand geo-restrictions for the app catalog, but is there any carrier restrictions?
3. I'm guessing i'll need a new SIM card. What size SIM does the Pre 2 use? My current SIM card is a Full sized from a moto razr (2004?) Besides I read somewhere that I should get a 4G SIM (didn't know SIMs have a speed).
4. Not Critical immediately, but has anyone got t-zones working? My grandfathered plan includes T-zones which got renamed to T-MobileWeb.
I'm pretty excited to get a Pre 2 and thanks for any help.
