I have the chance to purchase my friends Blackberry Curve 8530 sprint branded. However I'm skeptical because of a mandatory data plan that you supposedly have to have. Do I really have to have to buy a data plan? I know it has a clean esn.
P.S. I know having a data plan will make the phone more functional. I just don't see spending money on that.
Thanks for any help.
I certainly understand it is not ideal for your situation, but please understand that this is the case with any of the major carriers, not just Sprint. There are several feature phones that do not require you to add data services to your plan, but smart phones do require it.
