I know that it is possible to get a smart phone activated without a data plan because my housemate worked for Verizon this summer in Texas. He informed me you do no actually need a data plan, it is just verizon's normal policy... much like Time Warner says the lowest rate they can offer is 100 until you cancel the service and they call you back later offering 69.99 for 12 months. He was unsure if canceling the data plan however would work because he had never had it happen to him.
I was just wondering if anyone out there had heard of any one doing this, not looking for misinformation. Thank you tho
