Using the bb as just a phone depends on your carrier.
For example Nextel won't allow you to drop your data plan.
The work around is to put your Nextel bb on Boost.
Verizon has told me that I could drop my data plan, but I've never tried it.
I don't know about Cingular or Tmobile.
Which carrier do you use?
Also certain bb's work better as phones then other bbs'.
The 7130/8700 makes an excellent phone due to it's "send & end" buttons, where as in my experience the older style full keyboard types like 7250, don't work very good due to the escape button inadvertently causing hang-ups and the location of the earpiece sometimes makes it hard to hear the caller unless I position the phone precisely over my ear.
Which model of bb do you have?
