    hey guys. I was wondering whether or not I would be able to use a blackberry tour i have (got it free off a friend) with AT&T without a data plan. I know its kind of useless to have a BB without a data plan, but I just want to use this phone as a temporary phone for texting and calling. THANKS for the help!!

    I'm pretty sure if you use a BlackBerry, AT&T will add a data plan to your bill.

    They would know, since they do IMEI sweeps.

    From their wireless customer agreement:
    6.3 What Are The Voice And Data Plan Requirements?

    A voice plan is required on all voice-capable Devices, unless specifically noted otherwise in the terms governing your plan.

    An eligible tiered pricing data plan is required for certain Devices, including iPhones and other designated Smartphones. Eligible voice and tiered pricing data plans cover voice and data usage in the U.S. and do not cover International voice and data usage and charges. If it is determined that you are using a voice-capable Device without a voice plan, or that you are using an iPhone or designated Smartphone without an eligible voice and tiered data plan, AT&T reserves the right to switch you to the required plan or plans and bill you the appropriate monthly fees. In the case of the tiered data plan, you will be placed on the data plan which provides you with the greatest monthly data usage allowance. If you determine that you do not require that much data usage in a month, you may request a lower data tier at a lower monthly recurring fee.

    Just use an AT&T GoPhone SIM card and you'll be good to go
