nope, the only options are one of the everything data plans, simply everything, or there is one business plan. I forget what its called.

Re: Is there ANYWAY to get my Pre on my old plan?

what if you buy one unsubsidized (say second hand or unsubsidized from Best Buy)? Could you then just swap out your existing phone for the Pre and keep your existing plan? If someone has tried this, let us know. Thanks.

You can't. The billing system doesn't let the reps do this. Even if the rep wanted to give you the Pre on that plan they can't do it because the Pre ESN's won't activate on those plans.

I have the ancient Free Incoming plan from Nextel and i'll lose it if I get the pre. I'll gladly give it up when someone figures out how to tether.

I asked the reps from several different stores and they all say i can't keep my plan.

unfortunatly, at present, tethering/phone as modem is not supported. But there will be a way around it eventually, that much i'm sure of.

Re: Is there ANYWAY to get my Pre on my old plan?

Has anyone even tried punching it in the esn system?

The reason I ask is because everyone has been saying that you can't add a data card to 30$ sero but i've been going back and forth between my data card and ppc and I havn't had problems yet. I switch a few times a month depending on if i'm out on travel etc.

Technically true, bu t not in the way most people talk about.

You can tether your Pre and a laptop over bluetooth.

At the moment though it won't allow you to share internet connection even if tethered.
