This phone does not require a data package
on June 24, 2012
I was trying to find a phone that did not require a data package. According to Verizon, this phone does require one. I had to cancel my order, but it was not the seller's fault.
***UPDATE: This evening I have talked to three Verizon CSRs and received three different answers on the data plan issue. I am going to confirm tomorrow and update this review again with a definitive answer (that is in writing).
*** LATEST UPDATE: I just had a conversation with Verizon concerning this phone. According to the CSR I spoke with, and confirmed by his supervisor, when you activate this phone, they will automatically add a $9.99 data plan that covers 75MB of data. However, you can request that the data plan be removed and that a data block be placed on the phone.
The latest information satisfies my concerns and I have requested that the seller rescind my cancellation request and ship the phone. I will be back later after I activate the phone to let you know how my wife likes it. Stay tuned.
