    Hi all,

    I've gotten my new Vibrant thru Best Buy - just received it yesterday. Would it take a few days to have the data plan made active? My T-Mobile account still shows none. I tried connecting to my GMail acct and got a "no data plan" message.

    Maybe I need to call TMo or Best Buy?

    Maybe I can get away with just getting the $10/mo dumb phone data plan!

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Won't work unfortunately :(

    I've had a dumb phone w/ a data plan, popped the sim card into my friends vibrant, and 2 hours later data was blocked and kept sending me to the web2go upgrade web page :(

    Any t-mo branded phone has its specific imei # attached to it that the servers can recognize and force you to upgrade to android data.

    Might be able to only pay $20/mo tho for data with even more plus or android loyalty data plan through the loyalty dept if you've been with t-mo long enough.

    Ah Ha! So that's why I'm seeing this Web2Go thing. That is where the data plan sign-up is.

    Thanks very much.
