All I want my phone to do is be able to send messages, instant message, receive calls and keep a contact list! Do I really have to get the data plan? I don't want to use the internet or anything like that, I just really love how this phone looks and texting on it is a dream!
Please help me.
I am getting it from T-Mobile
You can do everything with a BlackBerry except the IM without a data plan. I actually started using a BB without a data plan for the same reason. But a data plan really brings out the versatility of the device. I just had a friend activate a data plan and now he sees the value.
Having said that. I don't think it is possible to have the Curve 8520 without a data plan. As some have said, T-Mobile now requires a data plan on most BBs.
