    I just bought a Blackberry Tour from a friend. I have Verizon's 10 dollar a month data package. Is there anyway to activate the phone without being forced to upgrade to the Blackberry data package?

    Don't think so... You'll need a smartphone/BB plan.

    Alright well thank you...Someone told me that if I activate the plan then call the next month and have them cancel it the phone will still work is there any truth to that? I just want the phone I don't need all of the features for it

    Why would you want a BB with none of the necessary features - to which it is design to do - ? If you cancel the phone, it'll cancel the line.. it has to have the plan on it to function, so to speak...

    You can not have a BB on verizon without a dataplan. You may be able to unlock it and find another carrier to use it on without a dataplan, but it's really not worth having a BB without data.

    IF this is case and you just want a phone, another device would suit your needs much better

    I got the phone for free, I like the Tour and wanted to use it especially since I got it for free. I thought you needed the data plan but I didn't know if i activated it online since I already have a partial data plan if it would work or not...or if there was a way to "unlock" the phone so that it would allow it to work.

    No there isn't. You must have a data plan. It will be added automatically no matter what.
