Data Plan on Verizon Wireless?

Hey guys,

I'm considering upgrading my phone on Verizon Wireless (I currently don't have a smartphone) and I've been looking at the Curve as my upgrade.  I saw on Verizon's online ordering site that they say you need to subscribe to a data plan when you order a smartphone such as the Curve.  I have no need for this data plan now, but I'd really still like the phone.  Is it possible to get the phone without the data plan on VZW?  Could I do this by buying the phone retail in a Verizon store or by buying it on eBay?

Re: Data Plan on Verizon Wireless?

Verizon requires the data plan in order to use a BlackBerry on their network. As soon as the device is activated on their network that data plan will be added to your account. There isn't a way around this.
