    TMO Sidekick Prepaid Plan Not Working?

    Has anyone else not been able to connect to the internet using Tmobile's $1/day unlimited Sidekick prepaid plan?

    I can still check email via the native app, and I can make phone calls and texts, but I cannot use Safari or any other app that requires an internet connection.

    Any ideas or fixes?

    I've tried all of the known working APN settings to no avail. The settings were working up until Saturday night, then nothing.

    Stopped working permanently? Or is this just a temporary issue that I should just wait out? Are there any other unlimited prepaid solutions for data only that I can look into?

    T-Mobile shut it down over the weekend. Only other prepaid option in the USA is ATT for 2G iPhones.

    There are already a couple of strings about this on the prepaid forum.
