T-Mobile prepaid service gets phone, modem data

T-Mobile today became the latest US carrier to add data to its prepaid mix. Its prepaid phone plans now include a 'sweet spot' $50 monthly plan with unlimited calling and messaging but also 100MB of data. Those avoiding a subscription can also either opt for a basic $30 plan that has a mix-and-match 1,500 minutes or text messages but just 30MB of data as well as a $70 plan that merges the unlimited calling and text with 2GB of data.

A $1.49 day pass will supply an unspecified amount of Internet access.

Modem owners can likewise now go prepaid and can pay $10 for a week of access to 100MB of data, $30 for a full month and 300MB, or $50 for a month with 1GB. A companion prepaid, white version of the webConnect Jet 3G modem will be available along with the plans.

Prepaid options should be ready today, while the USB-based Jet stick should be available online October 18 and in shops two days later.
