Default Browser with No Data Plan?

Please Login to Remove!

I do not plan on getting a Data Plan and I heard that some people were able to configure their browser without a data plan. How could I do that, if possible.

You have to have data in some fashion to hit the web. The data charges will be extremely high if you access w/o one at all.

OperaMini is the browser that some get to work, but with either WiFi or a generic (non-BB) data plan,

Verizon will no longer allow you to get a BB without a data plan. It is required. I planned on getting a BB without it to use the PDA features and they said no. You are required to pay a minimum of $29.99/mo. for a data plan to run a BB.
