I have been doing some research on the okta touch and am heading towards buying one - however i would like it to be able to go on prepay. Can i dont do that? Does it have to go on a plan?

All Telecom data devices are for use on Postpaid plans only.

No you cannot put this device (or any Telecom PDA) on prepaid. It is a business rule, and they will not do it.
You can go on "Go Onebill" if you have a Telecom residential landline, which is prepaid rates, but paid on an account in arrears.

The Touch has no WiFi, so even if it could go on Prepaid, data on it would be at casual rates (i.e. a hideously high price).
