    Hello i currently have a sidekick 3 and i dont really like it so i ordered a treo 650. Can someone please help me out. I currently have the 1000 min for 49.99 and the sidekick plan 19.99.

    My plans
    -Cancel the sidekick plan
    -Add unlimited txting 14.99
    -Add T-MobileWeb 5.99

    Now i really dont want to add T-Mobile Total Internet for 29.99. Are my plans possible? Because i dont really want to pay 29.99 for interent but then no unlimited txting. I would really like to add the T-mobileweb and use the browser. I read a few forums about it. My concern is txt messaging and interent working. So can someone please help me out with all the setup etc.

    Try leaving things as they are and it could work out fine. I use the T-Mobile VPN plan on my Treo 650 ($19.99/mo unlimited use) and do not use a text message plan. Although I text infrequently, I can do as much IM as I want using Mundu and the web.

    I believe the Sidekick data plan won't work with the Treo, based on what I've read online. (Never have had a Sidekick so I can't tell you).

    The $19.99/month internet plan isn't offered anymore. My wife has it grandfathered with her Treo 650 (which was my old Treo). My Treo 650 has the $29.99 plan but I actually use the Hotspots from time to time with my laptop while travelling so I don't mind. It gives me an excuse to be a Starbucks monkey.

    I've seen here on TC and on HoFo how people have used the $19.99/month Blackberry data plan successfully with a Treo 650 or an MDA. I'd do a search on that topic if you want to save the $10/month. Apparently you can go online to My T-Mobile, change your device to a Blackberry (shh, don't tell T-Mobile) and sign up for the BB data plan and you're off and running.

    I've also seen people talk about using the $5.99/month data plan successfully with a Treo. It involves proxy settings and that involves thinking and my brain doesn't have any thinking modules available for use at the moment, unfortunately. But you might try searches based on that.

    I have the $9.99/month unlimited texting deal that T-Mobile offered earlier this year.

    OFF TOPIC: I spend a lot of money with T-Mobile every month. The least they could do for me is offer some new PDA phones.

    I have an unlocked GSM Treo 650 on Tmobile. I have the $5.99 Tmobile Internet (formerly T-zones). That lets me access my Comcast email account which was what I really wanted. I have tried to access the other areas but cannot seem to do so. It's not a priority with me since I only need the email. I know it used to be possible to do so, but I think they cut that port off. Not sure if anyone has figured out how to do it. You can go to the Tmobile website and they will give you a step-by-step procedure to set up a 650 with them. It is:

    If you go to this page, you can hit the configure your device and then enter the Palm 650 and go from there.
