    Trust me. You can activate a prepaid SIM with a Sidekick plan without ever owning or having to buy a Sidekick. I have done this, as well as other members on this forum, on [ame="http://howardforums.com/showpost.php?p=12146534&postcount=17"]HowardForums[/ame], and other T-Mobile related forums.

    You can buy a prepaid starter kit online (or over the phone) and activate it (the kit has instructions on activating the prepaid SIM) with a Sidekick prepaid plan... all without having any kind of cell phone in your possession. The activation systems do not involve interactions by Customer Care reps or any human on T-Mobile's end. It's just like setting up your voicemail or any sort of email account, comparatively.

    Plus, you can buy the SIM at a store without having to buy a SK device... the caveat is reps want to sell you a device too (when you don't produce one to use at checkout) since they get commission for phone sales and service activations (dear lord, these reps are worse than Circuit City w.r.t. commission sales).

    Reread my post, and you'll see I said that I claimed to have a sidekick when in fact I didn't have one (I lied and said it was 'at home' to reps). I managed to get the SIM and Sidekick data plan, all without buying, owning, or borrowing a Sidekick.

    Yep. That's exactly how you can do it.
