    Yes, the phone will work fine without a data plan. Just make sure you have a wireless internet connection upon setup. Your SMS messaging will work fine as long as you have a regular phone plan with your SIM placed in the phone. I use it exactly this way on my Cliq. Fortunately with the new family plans, the data prices are great for the unlimited package.

    i am thinking about getting this phone too, for using with no data plan. are you folks able to get / send MMS messages?

    i'm also wondering about the GPS. does it work independently without any data connection? I know Google Maps requries data connection or wifi, but I would like to install TomTom or Garmin mobile that works without a data connection. Anyone done that?

    thanks!

    With this phone and no data plan, can you buy apps (like angry birds) when connected to WiFi and use them while not on WiFi?

    Yes you can, as long as the app doesnt need internet access(like a face book app)
