I'd like to use an Android phone with T-mobile pay as you go, and only use data access rarely - for which the DayPass at $1.49 unlimited per day looks perfect.
Unfortunately, on the online Q&A for the Comet Android device, http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/Phones/cell-phone-detail.aspx?class=prepaid&cell-phone=T-Mobile-Comet-Prepaid
(you may need to open 'Reviews' and 'Q&A' tabs)
How is web usage charged, for example, 1 minute per 1 minute of how???

You have to use it with a monthly plan (not necessarily a contract plan). You cannot use it with pay as you go.

So I called T-Mobile tech support, and the rep told me this is because all Android devices require a Google login on restart, and if internet connection fails, the entire start sequence fails too.
I find that questionable. Wouldn't it mean that taking an Android device outside of a friendly 3g area disables GSM use, even if GSM coverage exists? Is that true? It's a dealbreaker for me if so.
If it is possible to use an Android device with Pay As You Go and DayPass access, and any of you are currently doing so, please share stories.
