    "And I wonder if T-mobile is a little upset about getting undercut by the company they're leasing their network to." they are not.
    if you have a t-mobile compatible gsm phone you can get 100 minutes, unlimited data and text for $30/month. if you just talk talk talk all the time you can use your data connection for a voip service or a wifi connection. there is nothing else close to this.
