    They did as of last summer. I've not heard of any policy changes.

    No, as a few posters have pointed out, not all cariers do this-
    Cingular doesn't. If you don't get a subsidized phone upon signup
    (bring your own equipment or pay full price for a phone) you don't
    have to sign a contract.

    The OP is trying to activate a data device (an Aircard.) Most
    pre-paid plans do not offer data.
