Hi all. I'm new to the forums and a long-time prepaid T-Mobile customer.
I have been considering purchasing the prepaid Apple iPhone 5 through T-Mobile that is currently being sold at Walmart and Best Buy and I have a question before I make my purchase.
I have been to another message forum where someone told me I could buy the pay-as-you-go prepaid minutes for the phone but when I asked about a data plan where I could use the internet on the phone, they told me that T-Mobile does not have a data plan for the prepaid option and that I could only buy minutes to use for texting and phone calls. My question is this - is there a prepaid data plan I can purchase that is pay-as-you-go along with the minutes, or is the prepaid option good for buying minutes for the iPhone only?
Any advice I can get from other people who have the new prepaid iPhone would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
First of all there is no thing as a prepaid iphone
You can buy a tmobile iphone also at the tmobile store or apple
There are manynprepaid plans there are pay by the day plans that have data and monthly prepaid plans that have data
But the pay as you go plans do not have data.
Any tmobile phone can be used on any tmobile plan

I am just saying you can also buy the phone at apple and tmobile it doesnt have to say prepaid
The iPhone 5 sold at Walmart is sold to work on StraightTalk. However, StraightTalk is just a reseller of T-Mobile. You can use it on T-Mobile if you want and it should work. (As long as the iPhone 5 is a recent model A1428 with a serial number ending in
It will work.
Oh, and contrary to what you are hearing in this post, you can certainly use it on T-Mobile's prepaid. I'm doing it and it works just fine!
