As long as the my.t-mobile.com account shows a non-android phone as phone of record, the $10 plan should be available.

well a true man does admit when he is wrong.

I apologize for my wrong advice.

I suppose there is a bad way to get good internet.

Ah! You guys are amazing, just got this working on my Nexus One. Though now I have a quandary! I was going to buy my wife the Samsung Vibrant in a couple weeks, but now I'm tempted to buy another Nexus One off contract instead! It actually works out to be about the same price over a 2 year period given that the data plan is $15 less...

Yea the Nexus one is the other that works with the cheap data plans, its not officially a tmobile branded phone, so im sure thats why. But tmobile can restrict that with a push of a button, but guess they dont, so ride it out as long as you can.

The $10 internet plan is just internet, no texting.

Why change the proxy and port settings? It seems to work fine without doing that.

I was able to get it working again. Call t-mobile and ask them to remove you from the tower(flush). You'll have to turn your phone off & remove the battery then reboot. If they ask why just tell them you sometimes have issues receiving texts and that always fixes it.

It still works for me, but I'm not sure for how much longer it will work. I had to call customer service about something and now when I log in, it seems my phone as a BH2. OTOH, my bill hasn't changed yet and I haven't had any connection issues, but I'm not a heavy user. I think I used 300 MB last month and am only up to 300 or so for this month too.

get home, call the tmobile customer service # on a diff phone than your behold 2, tell them the same story, and ask for the 10 a month internet
dont let ANY tmobile person tell you that you are 'stuck' with the internet. lol.

i've had the regular talk+text+web and now im on the 10 a month internet. the speeds to me are the SAME. its data over 3g/edge connecting to the internet.

done.

Hey guys, I tried following everyone's advice on getting this to work, but you guys are also talking about a different phone, so I thought i'd see if anyone has experience or tips with my phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy S through T-Mobile, and I am trying to get this working on here, i've tried changing the APN and everything, still says I need to upgrade the web package. Any advice? Thanks!

You have to pay for the full plan on the galaxy s. No way around it.

I think if you're interested, I found a wiki one that listed all the phones compatible with the $10 plan, but I don't remember where the link is. Just look for phones compatible with tzones. I currently have an HD2 and I'm using the $10 plan with it and it's got a larger screen and faster processor then the BH2. Still, my sister is currently enjoying the Behold 2 and tzones continues to work on it too.

the trick is to buy a feature phone (I prefer the RAZR). Sign up for your T-Mobile plan with that phone, add $10 internet, add whatever you want. Then, after your plan is initiated and the phone (RAZR remember) shows up at tmobile.com on your plan, pull the SIM and pop it in your BH2 (or WHATEVER PHONE YOU WANT). I don't even think you need to make sure it's unbranded, but I wouldn't know because all of my phones have been rooted with custom ROMs anyway.

Anyway. Change your APN to internet2.voicestream.com and away you go. You'll then come back whining about how your MMS doesn't work, but that's a different thread (hint: search my user name and internet2 and MMS).

I don't want to say this too many times because I rue the day that TMoUS pulls the plug and takes away our $10 party.

Your phone type will change to the new phone (BH2, HD2, etc.) on Tmobile.com after a few days/weeks/months but your internet should still work fine. Before I call Tmobile about anything, I switch my phone on mytmobile.com back to the RAZR and put the SIM in that phone before I call.

I know it's an old thread, but it needs good information.
