Short answer no not really. If I was going to get a new phone right now it would be the Casio Brigade, but that requires a 10 dollar data plan. Everything non smart phone has their same lame interface. So if you don't wanna pay for a data plan and don't want one that has been "verizoned" then I am not sure of an option for you. I have tried before trying to get away paying for data plan and getting away from BB's but I keep coming back.
