Motorola i1: Data plans?

Can the Moto i1 be purchased and activated without a data plan?  There are many conflicting sources, and some say yes, and some say no.

You can purchase an i1 from Sprint online with no data plan.  If you click on "About data plans for this phone" you will see

Some important things to know about your Motorola i1

Phones built on the Android platform bring lots  of great features to your fingertips. Those features rely on a  dependable data network and a data plan. To take advantage of the great  features of your Motorola i1, we recommend one of the following data  plans. A $0.03/KB charge applies without a data plan or add-on.

Since a "$0.03/KB charge applies without a data plan", it must be possible to activate it without one.  However, realize that if you do use data, that is $30 per megabyte.

stephanie, not sure if you attempted this but I did.  they told me i could get it without a data plan but when it came they would not let me activate it without a data plan.  it was a big waste of time.

cool! you are lucky, my experience included talking to at least 4 sprint people, all said it wasnt possible.  i was disappointed.

that being said, your phone was activated with a data plan so it doesnt  contradict what they told me.
