    Then how do you have a BB. I do believe when you buy a BB from a carrier, you need a BIS or BES plan. Unless you bought it off ebay and had it unlocked and your using ATT or T-Mo.

    But if you were to go through VZW, they will put you on a BIS plan at minimum and then you can use Skype. Also Skype will only work for VZW customers.

    Not at this time. You must have VZW to use Skype, and you must have a data plan to use a BlackBerry on VZW.

    Considering Skype works over data, not only is it not possible to use it without data, it would be stupid to use it without a data plan. If you have a BB, why would you cripple it by not having a data plan?

    Yes, i got my phone off ebay just got it like 3 days ago, but i am considering what data plan to get, I think i want a family data plan for 2 people (although only me uses the data), and i want the cheapest possible(500MB or less is fine), i am located in Ontario Canada, anyone got suggestions?

    well i got my phone on ebay, unlocked, but has the verizon logo on the battery door, everything works now without data plan except blackberry email or the maps (but i use Mobile Gmaps, which works well), so i want the cheapest family plan available that gives me minimal amount of data (i have wifi access almost 24 hours a day)
