You're digging a hole that you can't get out of. It's not even "necessary." It's only "necessary" if you want email and and access to the features that come with the data plan. If you like the organizer features, keypad, reliability, etc. of a BlackBerry but don't need email or data then the BlackBerry is one of MANY devices that will work quite well for that.
Personally, I would go through withdrawls without my data plan. However, that doesn't make it "required" or "necessary."
End of story.
