Defy with pre-paid and a DayPass?


I'm currently considering getting a Defy off of ebay and using it with TM's pay as you go and web daypass and have been getting contradictory information, both from TM and from assorted forums, as to whether it's possible. Is anyone here doing it? Does it make a difference if the phone is unlocked? Rooted? If rooted what specs on the rooting?

I mostly need a rugged PDA with occasional emergency mobile voice and data capacity - I'm almost always in wifi accessible areas and I really don't like talking on phones or texting and $30/mo seems a hell of a lot for ten minute's use - and this seemed like the best deal out there.

My Nexus One runs just fine on the pay as you go plan and I have no problems purchasing and using the web day pass. I'm sure that you will have no problems using T-Mobile's prepaid service using the Defy.T-Mobile reps are often clueless about most of the services and phones. All they are taught is the basics and how to upsell.
