    Yes. it is not possible to activate a blackberry or any kind of smartphone on VZW without a data plan. Period. No ifs ands or buts about it. If anyone claims they have they are either talking about YEARS ago or are flat out lying to you.

    Well, some older PDAs such as the Centro don't require a data plan, but anything newer than that device, or any type of blackberry, will outright require it.

    Honestly, there's no point to having such a device if you're not going to use it for internet.

    Not for long they aren't - the carriers are moving to block MVNOs from doing it - basically, if you want BlackBerry connectivity, they will have to charge you.

    But looking at PagePlus's data rates, you'd be over $30 pretty fast anyway...

    EDIT: Nevermind. Google is your friend.

    For the 900th time, the keypad is cramped compared to most dumbphones.

    Compared to a TP2, Tilt, Rogue or enV, it is cramped - no matter the user's size.

    some guys just need a bigger phone to make up for littler things.
    you know like the guys that drive those huge lifted trucks bc something else is small.

    It might work fine but there's no denying that its cramped compared to pretty much any phone excluding the Blitz. Anyone who says that they want a BlackBerry because of the keyboard is kidding themselves.
