T-Mobile No Longer Allowing Unlocked iPhones To Use Prepaid Sidekick Data Plans

T-Mobile has announced that users of unlocked iPhones on their network will no longer be allowed to use prepaid Sidekick data plans. Questions sent to the official T-Mobile Twitter account about the issue say “You will no longer be able to use an IPhone [sic] with the Sidekick data plan” and “The Sidekick Data plan is meant for a Sidekick device. You may want to look into changing your data plan if ur [sic] using an iPhone.” Some users say they have still been able to access T-Mobile’s EDGE data network, but things aren’t looking up as far as alternatives to AT&T in the US go.
