    I don't know about that plan but I have the sidekick pre paid plan on my unlock ed original iphone. the sidekick plan is $1 a day for unlimited internet and text and it works just fine. all I had to do was enter epc.tmobile.com for the APN

    That's weird that you got a sidekick plan to work, because I was under the impression sidekick plans only use the Danger server which won't work on unlocked 1st Gens. I also currently have a sidekick plan (unlimited text, web, & email for $20 a month) and tried multiple APNs and no luck.

    Yeah I've been reading around the internet that its been hit or miss with the sidekick plan. maybe its because I have a pre-paid sim card? or it might be based on location?

    Just checked my phone settings and my APN is now blank and I don't know how that happened but my data connection and texting still works.

    Pretty lucky. I'm also wondering why t-mobile is calling it the "HotSpot Add-On" when in the description it doesn't give you access to t-mobile hot spots anyway, and just says unlimited web&mail.

    Footnote says it ONLY gives you access to hotspots and no EDGE.
