    Is there any way I can add a cheap data line separately from my prepaid plan? I know I can connect to edge through safari, but it says "this phone is not compatible" or some bs. But I am able to go to some menu where I can click some links to abc news and actually get data streaming (with no plan), so I know that there clearly is capability. Could I put my SIM in another phone and call and ask for something? I am ideally talking about that edge plan that costs $6 or $12 that I have read about, I dont care to pay more than that.

    You should call tmobile customer service and ask or go to a tmobile store.

    Tmo has always told me you can't add data to prepaid because it's some kind of billing issue the system isn't set up for.

    What I have from t-mobile is a non contract plan that comes with unlimited txt web and 500 min for $59.99 USD. Maybe you can try that, I think it's a good deal.

    i pay maybe $200 a year for 2000 minutes/texts and use skype (which is $30 for yearly unlimited) for most calls, and then use wifi for my internet (which exists nearly everywhere). i would be nearly quadrupling my costs if i signed up for a plan like yours. clearly not worth it just to add edge.

    When I went to get that plan I asked for prepaid and the employee said you can't get data on prepaid service.
