Also not sure If i can post this here.

They told me I cant buy the phone (I wanted to pay full price) because they said I currently have no data plan. Are they allowed to do that? I remember buying a tmobile sidekick a few years back and they allowed me to purchase it without a data plan.

You're allowed to purchase the phone, they're allowed to refuse to add it to your account.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

I googled it and everyone is saying you can buy a phone without data.

Someone paying for a monthly data plan (especially if it's limited) gives them more profit in the long run than a phone.

Yup.

TC, you should really explain the entire situation. I have an odd feeling that you are leaving some things out.

I went to a tmobile stand ask them I want to buy a new smartphone, they say okay checks my account then says sorry but we cant sell you any phone if you dont have a current data plan. I say why not? Im paying for the just phone so I shouldnt be talked into a different plan. Tmobile guy says yeah well if you dont update your current plan we cant sell you a phone.

EDIT: I was able to buy a phone from tmobile before without data and they told me Im suppose to have data but they still let me get a new phone
