    i want to get a g1 on tmobile [or att?] but i am only 16. On tmo.com i saw the prepaid option but i dont think thats available for g1 [data], and the flex pay requires a drivers licence check to verify ID.
    please help

    You can visit the office where they issue driver's licenses in your state, that office will also make you a state ID card.

    Interesting note from a few friends, having both a State ID card and a driver's license can come in very handy.

    Yes the dmv. I would NOT expect a permit to work. They normally aren't photo IDs. Visit your state's website to get more info.

    really?? thats interesting.
    how would i give them a fake id and have it match my name and ss #?

    but its definatly possible for me to by a g1 on ebay, but a tmo sim card, call them and activate it with flex pay and pay the first month with [a prepaid visa card]?
    then i can go into a local convience store and buy refills for $50, $100...and use that to pay the bill?

    sounds great

    if i wanted to buy a sim card and a g1 and then call and activate it with flexpay and pay the first month with maybe a prepaid visa card, then buy refill cards for $50/$100 I could do that? When i call to activate what is the easiest thing to give them [id]?
    i dont think i can do it online because it would make me buy a g1 [at retail] in order to get the unlim data+txt plan for g1 on the sim card. If i bought the g1 and sim card and called to activate i could tell them i already have a g1 and i need the corresponding plan?
