    Did you ever consider selling it on eBay? You might be surprised how much you get and could use towards your Android phone.

    I should really put my Blackberry Storm up on eBay. Think I could get 100.00 for it? It's just collecting dust on my bureau.

    To stay on topic I know some companies allow you to use some smart phones without a data plan. Isn't it that they use EDGE instead? Heck, I'm not certain I just remember seeing people with Blackberry Storms who did not have data plans in Crackberry.

    Since the Storm had a SIM card for international travel, as well as CDMA, it was a phone that if the SIM card was unlocked, would be able to be used on AT&T or other GSM carriers. Many people on CB talked about how it would work on EDGE on AT&T, but as we know it is slower and more congested than VZW 3G.

    Back in November, I sold my Storm and 2 charging docks and got $185 for it. That, plus the $100 mail in rebate pretty much made my Moto Droid free.

    Thanks for the info everyone... I got me a Droid Sat. and my wife the chocolate touch.. and Since she is employed by the state we got a discount on the data plans anyhow so it wasnt too bad and i will show here how to use it when she needs to...
    as mentioned pretyy much any phone thats multimedia capable has to have the data plan except the older ones that were already activated prior to the new rules..
    WE paid 180 for both phones w/2yr contracts ... Now to ebay our old phones (dare/Voyager)...

    That's the problem ... even phone like the Env3, EnvTouch, ETC ETC ETC (aka all phones that were released in the last year to year and a half) *all* require a data plan.

    The good news? They require a data plan that costs a whole $10 a month. While a little more than you're used to paying, at least it's not $30/month.... I know this is annoying, though, and is the reason I went with the Droid ... If I'm going to use data, I'm not going to be afraid if I am within my 25 or 50 mb limit. ... If I'm going to use data, I'm going all out. And using as much as I possibly can
