    I just bought a unlocked blackberry curve for Verizon wireless on ebay. If I activate the phone, I will not have to pay for the data charges associated with Verizon and Blackberry because I did not buy it through Verizon... Right? I am simply just activating a new phone and switching from my existing (non blackberry) phone I bought through Verizon.

    The data plan requirement has nothing to do with when you bought the phone, its based on when that model was released.

    Blackberries have always required data plans though.

    The Motorola wouldn't if it was made before that date.....

    As for the berry, there is no possible way to activate it without the data plan

    Alright so if I bought a smartphone that was released before November of 2008, other than the blackberry, I would not have to pay a data plan?

    Blackberries period and any smart phone added to our inventory list after nov 08 require a data plan. No matter how or where you bought it.
    Aka.. Moto Q and Q9C, the 6800 and 6900 and palm centro do not require data plan.
    Just get it you will be happier in the end when you don't end up with huge data chgs.

    The twice weekly BB without a data plan demand. It is getting old. Still wondering what there is on a verizon phone to unlock, too.

    Yea, lets not go too far. We might be able to cut out some of the nonsense threads but a mature discussion? You're nuts.
