    I don't think you can get a Blackberry w/out the Data plan. A way VZW can get more $$$.

    I think they offer a plan pay-as-you-go. If you don't use, then you pay nothing.

    Info from VZW:

    Unlimited PDA/Smartphone and BlackBerry® Plans:
    Data sessions may be used for following purposes: (i) Internet browsing; (ii) email; and (iii) intranet access (including access to corporate intranets, email and individual productivity applications like customer relationship management, sales force and field service automation. Intranet access requires the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.). Unlimited plans are for individual use only and not for resale. The Unlimited plans cannot be used: (1) for any applications that tether the device to laptops, PCs, or other equipment for any purpose, (2) for uploading, downloading or streaming of movies, music or games, (3) with server devices or with host computer applications other than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, including, without limitation, Web camera posts or broadcasts, continuous jpeg file transfers, automatic data feeds, telemetry applications, automated functions or any other machine-to-machine applications, (4) as substitute or backup for private lines or dedicated data connections.
    Data sessions automatically terminate after two hours of inactivity unless used with a Mobile IP-capable device. We reserve the right to deny or terminate service, without notice, to anyone who uses the Unlimited plan in any manner prohibited above or whose usage adversely impacts our network or service levels. We also reserve the right to terminate service upon expiration of Customer Agreement term.

    PDA/Smartphone and BlackBerry Megabyte Features:
    Megabyte allowance and charges for kilobytes over the monthly allowance apply to data sessions; all other usage charged in accordance with Calling Plan. Data sessions are rounded to next full kilobyte at end of each billing cycle. Only total of kilobytes transmitted above allowance each billing cycle may appear on bill. You are responsible for all charges, including all data sent and received and "overhead" whether or not you or your recipients actually receive the data. Overhead is all data that is in addition to user-transmitted data, such as control, operational and routing instructions, error-checking characters as well as retransmissions of user-data messages that are received in error. Any unused portion of the megabyte allowance is lost.

    Important Information Regarding Wireless Sync:
    Compatible NationalAccess-capable or BroadbandAccess-capable PDA required. Not available for NationalAccess-, non-NationalAccess-, BroadbandAccess-, or non-BroadbandAccess-capable PC Cards or for other wireless modems such as mobile devices tethered to PCs. The monthly allowance applies only to NationalAccess or BroadbandAccess data transmissions, not to voice or other types of data transmissions such as TXT Messaging, Picture Messaging, Video Messaging, Get it Now® and Mobile Web. You can use Wireless Sync on the Verizon Wireless digital network, but if you do so, you will be charged at the "other data" rate. You select which network your Wireless Sync will function on in your Internet settings. In order to use Wireless Sync, your PC must be on and in a condition to receive email.

    The BlackBerry Solution from Verizon Wireless:
    The email capability of the BlackBerry Wireless Handheld functions only within the Verizon Wireless National Enhanced Services Rate and Coverage Area. Verizon Wireless NationalAccess service is not available with the BlackBerry Solution. With BlackBerry Handheld software version 3.6, the first 2 kilobytes (KB) of each email are initially received on the BlackBerry and you can simply request to receive additional 2-KB increments. Some email attachments (Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Corel WordPerfect, Adobe PDF, and ASCII text) are delivered to the BlackBerry when requested by the end user. Graphics are not delivered to the BlackBerry. When the BlackBerry reaches its storage capacity, email stored on the handheld will automatically be deleted from it, starting with the oldest emails first. BlackBerry Desktop Software using desktop redirector does not support POP3 or ISP email accounts.

    The previous post I did is information I got from their "Terms & Agreement".

    You have to have a data plan with a Blackberry! I was browsing VZW and this was a screen shot I took. Here is some info about the plans:

    Blackberry Solution Unlimited Data Usage

    Email & Web for BlackBerry

    The second option is Pay-as-you-go.


    Hopefully this clarifies Blackberry's Data plan.

    Hey..

    You can get the phone.. When you activate it, it automatically adds the data plan. Call them up or have 611 remove the data feature. Make sure to turn data services off on the blackberry ro you will get charged like crazzy for data.

    I asked them that when I went in to get a blackberry, but the guy said there was no chance they could do that, yet whenever i asked if they could turn off the data plan on my motorola Q, they said they could do it. And that's what they did. What's up with that? I like my Q, but I'd rather have a blackberry...

    I have the $30 data plan and I get 21% off with my job. I do a lot of web browsing on my blackberry especially with TW haha. I can imagine how my bill would be if I had a pay as you go data plan. To me the $30 is worth it.

    No lies. Its just like every other company, you need to fight for waht you want. I mean, it's YOUR money. Trick is getting the right people on the line in the beginning. Im on the network side so i don't touch any billing, but you can get it done.

    I love my Blackberry, but i honestly see no point without data. :(
