And I believe that AT&T sweeps their network looking for BlackBerrys without data plans. So you may end up with one in any event!

Most carriers are looking for people who dont have a Data Plan. Pick a plan before they pick one. It wont be in your favor.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks button

You need a data plan for everything.

not exactly, there are many apps, like ours, where you don't need a data plan, many apps to indeed support WIFI
