I am buying an iphone 4s factory unlocked but i am wondering if i can use my prepaid t-mobile (without a data plan). I don't need a data plan (internet) as i have wi-fi everywhere. So should i have buy a data plan or wi-fi is just enough, especially iphone 4s works on edge with t-mobile? thanks.
As long as your iPhone is unlocked, you can pop in any T-Mobile SIM (prepaid or postpaid) and your voice and text will work (you may need to make a few APN setting changes potentially).
Since you brought your phone, you aren't REQUIRED to have a data plan, so getting a data plan is your perogative. Note that without a data plan, you will not even be able to get on EDGE if you are out and about and need data. If you are planning on having non-WiFi data on your phone, I'd suggest the lowest priced data plan since you're not getting 3G/4G speeds anyway?
Smplyunprdctble is absolutely correct! As long as the phone is unlocked you will have no problem using a T-Mobile sim for voice and text. You will not need a data plan since you did not purchase the phone through T-Mobile.
Please let me know if you have further questions or concerns!
so i can use wi-fi with my iphone 4s even though i don't have a data plan from t-mobile?
Correct. Data Plan only affects using T-Mobile's data, not your personal WiFi
