No, you'll be fine.
If I put my sim in a friend's G1 and I have the $20 total internet, will it automatically change it to the new $25 plan or no?
I was told by CC that without a special sim the 3G network was not accessible. Of course it's a $25 plan for the special sim. Is this wrong then? Or maybe they meant the $25 plan just had to be enabled for 3G accessibility. Can anyone clarify?
B.S. any SIM from the last 2 years are 3G capable. I got my SIM last summer and it works fine (3G and all) with the G1 ($25 data plan though). And I continue to get 3G data with the $5.99 T-Zones plan on my SE TM506.Originally Posted by cbreze
I wonder if adding Family control or whatever for would help "lock" old features in place? I want to try the G2, but I dont want to loose the T-Zones $5.99.
The plans won't change. All you have to do is swap out the sim cards and you'll be good to go.

There is a thread here talking about this very thing. Seems someone put their sim card into a G1 and bang - automatic rate change. And T-Mobile forced them pay the billing for it even though it was in for a short period of time.
So I'd have to say you just may be hit with a higher rate.

The point of the thread is not whether you get 3G with a new or old simcard; the point is whether putting my sim card, with the $20 total internet plan, will automatically change the data plan to the $25 G1 plan....

EDIT: and it seems you even STARTED other threads on this precise topic which you could have bumped.
I'd like to know this too, the offical T-Mobile stance is no, if you got it from a 3rd party. Be alert though; there are members on here that have had Legacy data rate plans bumped off by the G1.
reuther- You researched my other posts: Post something useful if you went through the trouble of checking up on me...
If you want to keep your grandfathered $20/month plan(This assumes you are already configured for Internet2 Total Internet Plan), buy the G1 on Ebay. Then, just remove all the other APN's that are in the G1's list. Remove all the ones that are US based, or use numbers like 210, 330, etc(Keep the NL or UK, etc ones, those are for overseas roaming). Then add in an APN with the following information. If you already had the 20/month plan, it will work fine, no proxy, no changes to your data plan, period. I have done it on several phones, no issue when configured this way. If you buy a G1 from Tmo, then they automatically add the G1 plan, but if you buy 3rd party, it's not an issue.

So, am I hearing this correctly? Right now Walmart does not require a data plan on the G1. Later this week they will be though. If I bought a G1 today w/out the G1 data plan, will I or will I not be required to have the G1 data plan in the near future (will I be auto-converted)? I currently have the $5.99 plan.
Thanks for any prompt yet accurate replies.
