    I have the Xperia X-8 from Sony Ericsson and no data plan (voice only). I do have access to the internet through my wireless internet router at home (and at work). When I go to the Market App (labelled "Market" on my phone), it asks me to register with my existing Google account. After about 4 minutes I get the following message:

    Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server.
    This could be a temporary problem or your phone may not be provisioned for data services. If it continutes, call Customer Care.

    The message seems to be hinting that I need a data plan. Is that true? I'd think that I could get to the app store through the internet. I did find this link:
    Guide: Using Android Without a Data Plan - Getting Apps, Moving Contacts, and More - xda-developers
    and can follow the steps if necessary. It seems like overkill though. I thought there were Android devices that didn't even have phone service? How do they get apps?
