you're the one that wants a smart phone without a data plan. Do the math, it costs a hell of a lot less paying for just voice than it does for voice + data. With the contracts you are limited in which plans to choose. Without you pick what is right which is often cheaper. It is nearly always cheaper to pay $500 and never have a contract.
Bottom line is that nobody is going to give you a $500 smart phone for nothing while you pay only for a cheapo voice plan. They do the math too.
The phone costs $500. Or a hell of a lot more if you lock yourself in to the subsidy plan with the bogus $0. It ain't $0.
