As a result my phone now says "Data connection refused" across the top, near where the 1X is.
I've never had to pay for data since!
(most of these users are probably wondering why get a BB without data, I liked the schedule/calendar feature and the full size keyboard for txt. My other VZ options were: Treo(too expensive), MotoQ(Moto makes cheap phones), or the VZ branded smartphone(its a brick).)
Im sorry I just dont believe this! Only because I have tried countless times.
And yes I do agree a Brand new BB is a waste of money if you arent using all the features. Like having candy and not taking the wrapper off. Treos arent anymore than the BBS
You will be hard pressed to get them to turn the data off. I dont know when the other guy did his but I tried a few days ago for my son (OLD 7250) and it was a no go. I called back 5 times and asked for a supervisor the last three. He was mad becuase he wants a BB but I dont see any reason for him to have all the features, he just wants the keyboard.
