The HotSpot part of that is not tied to the phone BTW. If the phone has WiFi you can certainly use that at Starbucks, but you will have a HotSpot account and can log in with your laptop as well.
When I got the plan, you could get either the GRS/Edge or the Hotspot for $20 if you have T-Mobile as your voice carrier, at a specified level of voice plan. Together they are $30, with voice. So if you don't need WiFi at all, you should be able to get the phone data for $20 with voice. I think of the HotSpot as costing me $10.
