New Data Only Plan coming?

We received the following from one of our most reliable sources:

Effective Wednesday, June 28, T-Mobile is pleased to announce the launch of a voice barred version of the $29.99 Sidekick Unlimited Plus rate plan. This version of the Sidekick Unlimited Plus plan is being introduced to cater to those who do not require a voice plan on their device. This plan acts the same as the stand-alone Sidekick rate plan, but without the ability to place voice calls.

  7. D_cell Says:

    for example, I would assume if you’re deaf. and you dont want incoming calls. this would be ideal for you.

  8. Strobin Says:

    there you go. That way you don’t have people calling you on that phone @ $0.20 a minute. I may go this route.

    Ok thanks, I’m sticking with the regular data plan, also since I had insurance on my sidekick II, dey said I still pay the same rate for it on my sidekick3,($5.99) so does that mean insurance would be more expensive for others since it is so new?

    i don’t know if i could have done the 2 years only for 50 bux less it seems like such a long time. so i did the 1 year

    ya, i dont have the sidekick 2, but im gettin the new sidekick 3 after it comes out, so im guna be new to sidekick, and that whole data only plan is perfect fo me cuz i only need the data, i got another phone with a different service!

    guys im confused i was browsing a while back and i remember choosing a voice plan and the SK 2 data plan which read to be $20 when inside of my shopping cart.

    is the data plan $20 or $29.99?? i was confused before this too because i had also seen that the plan was 29.99 on the site..but its 20 when i put it in my cart??

    which one is it

  17. dddduuuuuuddee Says:

    k im guessing it was just because i added a voice plan to it. 20 with a plan and 29.99 without a minute plan.
