    nothing.

    unless you use the internet. then you would need to sign up for a plan. otherwise, just done access the internet through tmobile, just use wifi and you will be fine.

    approximatly 0.00$
    no, exatcly 0.00$.

    If you dont have a data plan, and try to use data services without wifi, the iphone will tell you that it is not connected to a data plan and will not allow u to use data without wifi.

    if you were to get a data plan, would it even work?
    and do you need the data plan for MMS?

    yes, the data plan would work, however, only at EDGE speeds, not 3G speeds.

    i have a data plan, and even on the EDGE network, the internet is about the same speed on the Iphone compared to 3G speeds with the Samsung Behold I was using.


    and no, you dont need a data plan for MMS. you just want to make sure that you wont be charged "extra" because its an MMS instead of a SMS. IIRC, all txt plans include MMS w/ tmobile. so as long as you have a txt plan, you should be fine.

    yes tmobile data plans work on iphone to get them to work simply go to settings>general>network>APN, and under APN fields type in wap.voicestream.com, leave pass blank.

    I used to use that. Tmobile updated the speed of their data services. I've found epc.tmobile.com to be working faster now. Faster as in significant enough for me to notice, but not wifi fast of course =D

    my experience is completely different.

    epc.tmobile.com was SLOW for me.

    internet2.voicestream.com was MUCH faster.


    i am on the total internet package BTW, that might make a difference.
