    you are incorrect. you can not add a Pay as you go feature and then add a data block... its like contridicting (sp?) itself.
    No, it is not contradicting anything.

    All PDAs w/ VZW must have a data plan. Non BB PDAs have the option of the pay as you go plan.

    If you wanted to activate a non-BB PDA, without paying for data, you would have to select the pay as you data option, and then have all data blocked, to keep from getting charged for data, when the phone randomly connects to the network either because you accidentally clicked the web browser, or in the case of some Windows Mobile phones, it connects by itself to the data network.

    Back to the topic at hand, BBs on VZW require a data plan, and pay as you go is not an option. Case closed. It doesnt matter if it can technically be done, or if people dont think that its right to force the data plan, this is their policy, and they adhere to it strictly.

    There may be some people who have activated without data ages ago, or even recently with a rep who is completly oblivious, or just doesnt care about getting fired. Dont count on it though.

    No way to activate it without data in the billing system though. The system in place will not complete any transaction that leaves a data plan off of a BB. You can't remove a BIS without replacing it with BES at the same time. just the rules of the game there.
