    I'm looking at getting rid of my 3GS iPhone and getting a Blackberry and have a quick question about the data plans. From what I understand, it's mandatory now with a Blackberry just like an iPhone correct? My question is, if I buy the phone from someone on here or Craigslist or something, will I still be required to have the data plan as long as I have the phone? I know AT&T will "know" I have and use the phone because of the IMEI number, but will they require me to have it since I didn't buy the phone from them?

    The only way to avoid the mandatory data plan with AT&T, is to buy an unlocked BB from another carrier, or a unbranded, and unlocked BB.
