Cheap data plan for cell phone?

Is there a cheap cell phone plan with data in the US?
I'd rather not carry around both my phone and another device, but that may be unrealistic.
I am not a big phone user and am happily using T-Mobile's prepaid plan. I use my phone mostly for quick calls like letting someone know where I am. Now I'd like to be able to find an address or look up a price or maybe check my email once in a while.
I really don't want to pay $80 per month for a unified service since I barely use the talk and text minutes. Typically I pay about $150/year for my prepaid minutes.
Is there anything out there that lets me just pay for the data I use? I will be buying a new phone, so I am not tied to a particular OS.
