Connecting data phone without data plan
Checked out the HTC phone with US Cellular over the weekend. Since it's expiring I like to replace my phone whenever that happens since the usual flow of Motorola phones I've had all turn into suck butt around a year after getting them, and the KRAZR is no exception. So if I got the HTC phone which has data capabilities, I'd have to get the data plan. While nice, it's just not something I need or care much about. So I asked if I brought in my own phone, could they just hook it up? They said that if I bought it through them or whoever else that all data phones must have data plans. So any insiders at US Cell that can get around that? If I slip the dude a $20, can he just hook it up with no data plan?
