I think the only way you'll be able to have the phone portion of the service disabled is to contact your provider.

Before I moved over to data and voice combined on my 8700c, I was carrying a second phone line which served data only for my old Blackberry (this was on Cingular). The price was very similar to having the data option added to my voice number when I combined the services.

If you have the data only plan, wouldn't you pay the voice call per-minute basis?

I would suggest to check with your carrier to ensure you won't get any other charge than the data plan you use.

You can uncheck the Phone app in the application loader but I don't know if that will prevent the green/send key from launching the phone app as I've never tested this myself. The last time I accidentally removed the phone app was on a 7290... You'll need to have the handheld software for your 8700 loaded on your PC as well as Desktop Manager.

Do you get charged when you "get" a phone call, or only when you answer it?

I believe most wireless plans don't charge you for unanswered calls. So don't get voicemail, don't answer or make any calls, don't give the number out to anyone, and your problem is 99% solved, all except for those times you do answer the call, then you should pay for the service.

If no one else comes up with a workaround of removing the phone application, then this seems sensible to me.
