The joy of purchasing a device with no data plan requirement is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Sure, a lot of carriers out there will still allow you to do it. But come Aug. 8, T-Mobile will not be one of them. T-Mobile will require all customers purchasing a smartphone to take on a data plan before walking out the door. Not the end of the world or anything, but still -- rather lame.
*Update* - Like most leaks, before official information is confirmed -- this one has caused quite a bit of speculation as to its real meaning. Based on the info available, this breaks down to T-Mobile stopping customers from removing data features on their account that were contracted. A loophole existed where customers could escape their contracted terms by swapping devices out ie: a dumbphone, on a previous smartphone account, now -- they will no longer be able to do so.
