    Was wondering if anyone knew if a prepaid sidekick account would work on a unlocked iphone.... would i be able to access data and unlimited texting on the iphone from my prepaid sidekick account. Also i understand that apple can update the firmware and disable a sim unlock, but dont we have the option to update the firmware or not and keep the sim unlock active?

    As for unlocked iphone, i'm wondering what you guys use to get data only?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm pretty positive that this will not work.

    T-mobile states that the sidekick data plans work only with the sidekicks.

    They say that even the unlimited texting portion of the sidekick plan no longer works when you put your sim card in any other phone.
