Default No Data Plan Required

Ok, I got one of these phones today to replace my optimus V.

AT&T has much better coverage in this area (versus Sprint).

This phone is basically the same as all of the OPTIMUS series.

This is a GSM version (AT&T).

A data plan is NOT REQUIRED for this phone!!!!!!!!!!!
You need only sign up for the $2 a day unlimited talk, or the 10 cents a minute plan.

If you access something that REQUIRES data, if will tell you to add a data plan.

You can add a DATA PLAN at a later time (if your choose to pay the high rates for data at&t wants).

the phone will work on WI-FI for any of your data needs....

I turned MOBILE DATA **OFF**....

AGAIN, a data plan is NOT required for this phone.

i'm happy with the $25 plan for 3 months @ 10 cents a minute.

The only thing is that then you won't be able to send/receive MMS. I think going for the 10MB plan is worth it to check weather/facebook/ etc. a little
