<div>AFAIK you need a data plan if you want to surf the web. There might be alternatives to getting internet acces to your neo but I don't know of them. And maybe someone could correct me on this point, but I think you can use your phone as a dialup device but that would give you internet to the computer which is using your phone as a modem. I guess you could use the bluetooth as a network adapter but I don't know if that will give you internet access if your network has it.

<br>renaming itself AT&T) seem to be the only major ones." That's not enough.</blockquote>
<div>What ever services you can put on your sim card should work, example, unlimited text, any minute plan, any data rate plan, and any prepaid service you can get through t-mobile and/or cingular. So what ever services your provider offers, which you can find on their websites, should work on the neo1973. Now if I am wrong someone correct me please.
