    Blackberry on non-data plan?

    My son's [non-data] phone got washed in his jeans, and my mom just got a newer phone (Galaxy I believe) and has a like new Blackberry...can they activate it and just not add the data? The lady at customer service said "no", but to me I don't see why it wouldn't work, other than USCC likes to be difficult.
    Formerly: HTC TouchPro 2
    Currently: Samsung Mesmerize

    Cannot be done, BB's require a data plan.
    MOTOROLA Still #1 in reception and call clarity.

    Welp, that figures...what about any other smartphones, say an HTC Desire or my Mesmerize? [my USCC rep can't believe I'm still using my Mez, but it's been a great phone for me and does everything I want]

    Or for that matter, anyone know of a way to get a cheap dumbphone to replace his previously washed one? Our USCC guy said it was gonna cost us a couple hundred bucks to replace a phone we gave 1 cent for...
