    Hello

    Is there a blackberry that can work "blackberry protect" without a data plan?

    Thank you for your time

    Protect relies on data. Without a cellular data plan the most you can expect is WiFi data, and even that would be a long shot for the "lost phone" aspect of Protect.

    First off, welcome to CrackBerry!
    Please update your profile to include device, carrier, and location. This makes it easier for others to help you.

    Are you using a newer BB10 device (ex Z10, Q5) or a legacy BBOS device (ex Bold 9900, Curve 9350)?

    With any legacy device you'll need a BlackBerry-specific data plan, aka BIS (for BlackBerry Internet Service).

    With a BB10 device you can use any generic data plan. Without a data plan, you might connect over Wi-Fi as mentioned by Branta right above me; but that's counting on a person that finds your phone to add a Wi-Fi network and be connected to Wi-Fi when you try to use the Protect website to find your phone.
