What is the most cost effective data-only plan on GSM in the US right now?

I've got an HTC Hero (Android) phone. I'm currently on T-Mobile with a talk/text plan at about $40/month but I just don't talk or text much and I think I'd get much more out of a data plan. Is going to data only and using some combination of Skype/Gizmo/GVoice for infrequent calls/text a reasonable option? Do T-Mobile or ATT have any kind of reasonable data only plans? I think ATT has a prepay for $20/month but limited to a seemingly paltry 100MB.
I did find these recent questions
, covering short term use by tourists. Nothing sounded promising there but maybe there are better options for longer term use, although avoiding multi-year contracts would be nice.
