What if the user likes the BlackBerry device, and has no need for data features.
I recommend BlackBerry devices to many people who only use them for phone and SMS. There's nothing wrong with it. In fact, it gives them an easy upgrade path if/when they "outgrow" their current usability style and want to explore the other features that BlackBerry offers.
Everyone has different likes/dislikes/needs/wants.
There's nothing wrong with getting the device you want, and using it the way you want.
Verizon Wireless simply doesn't allow this type of flexibility for the user.
