    Want to switch to Verizon for the 9930. Need a phone for wife just want to talk and text. On ATT i had her on a old Blackjack no data. She is used to the keyboard. All the texting phones on Verizon had bad reviews. Will Verizon let me purchase a smart phone on my own (ebay) and activate with no data plan? ATT used to allow this they no longer.

    If you get a really really old phone you could. The HTC Touch would be a good example I believe. However with the new data packages you could just do a minimum 75MB plan and it wouldn't cost much.

    Verizon will not allow a phone to be activated, whether it be a smart or dumb phone, without a data plan.

    T-Mo is the only one of the big4 that will let you have a smartphone without requiring data. I've got 4 BBs on my account, only mine has data.

    The phone would have to be from the Treo 700W era.
    You could activate and have them eliminate the data plan, but only if the phone is real old.

    Been there, done that.
