That sounds like a load of BS to me. Does anyone know if there is any validity to this?
Yep he is shoveling it your way! If you do not order a data plan it will not use any BB data. You should still be able to use the PDA funtions, phone and maybe SMS. No internet, email or other BB services.
The guy just wants to sell a data plan!
