    Do I need data plan to access the internet with a smartphone?

    I plan on getting a Motorola Devour sometime within the next month and I am curious as to whether or not I can simply use my home wifi network to get online. Is this possible or do I need a data plan?

    Thanks, in advance.

    It is possible to use your wifi, but Verizon requires you get a $30 a month data plan.

    So, with a Motorola Devour I must have a Data plan? Why can't I just use wifi?

    You don't have to have a data plan unless you have it activated. You can always use it wi-fi only, but if you want it on Verizon at all then yes you have to have the $30 data plan too.
