    Idk...they told me my work discount won't apply because I won't be signing a two year contract. I'm about to call Sprint to see how much my ETF is....
    Just call AT&T and buy a "Pay As You Go" SIM card. They are like $6.67 sent to you in the mail. You'll get it in a couple of days. You'll get a phone number with it. Online you can add talk time, a basic message package and a data package. Then you can see if you really like the phone.

    Don't get a Pay As You Go SIM card from an AT&T store. They will charge you $60 for it. You have to do it over the phone.

    You...sir....are my hero. So I'll have access to 3G and all that, and just pay as I go? How much does that normally run?

    EDIT: Found someone who is selling me their's on Craigslist for 5 bucks. The only thing I don't like about this Focus is that Samsung apparently put a cheaper accelerometer in it, so it rotates so much slower than my Arrive (almost making it not feel like a Windows Phone at times because it's so slow).

    There are some options, I use an AT&T Pay As You Go SIM card in my HTC Trophy, which is my work phone. I am on the 10 cent a minute plan for voice. I buy a 200 message plan for $4.99 a month and 100mb data for $15.00 a month. Like I said, they have other options.

    According to the website, smartphone users must buy a data package =/

    What am I to do now?

    Here is the card I am going to buy BRAND NEW ATT & TMOBILE SIM CARDS

    So according to you, everything should work and I should still be able to get 3G access and everything?

    They have a 10MB data package for $5 a month. Like I said, I buy the 100mb data for $15.00 a month.

    I know nothing about craiglist. Myself, I don't know if I would trust those SIM cards, but that's up to you.

    You'll get 3G with the AT&T SIM card, but I thought you said you didn't want data from your first sentence? With the T-mobile SIM card, you will get 2G for data.

    Data is really the only thing I want. For voice, I can use my Sprint phone really until my contract is up, buy if I have to take minutes I'll take them.

    I need unlimited (or 2GB or w/e) data because of E-mail and 200MB isn't close to enough for what I need...

    Just an update: I am now trying to sell the Focus. Idk, I just didn't really think about how much that extra $20 or so a month will cost me for leaving Sprint over a long long period of time, even thought it's contract free (plus, they pro-rate you). Sprint is on the phone with me, but idk what they're going to be able to do because you can't just all of a sudden make 3G work in places that it never worked before....
