    Newbie here. I was given a new Verizon Fascinate by a friend -- he won it in a drawing, and is AT&T\iPhone all the way. It's my first smartphone, so I don't currently have a Verizon data plan, and at this time don't really want to commit to a data plan. My question is: Can the Fascinate be configured to work without a data plan? In other words, I would use it as a cell phone, media player, etc., but with Wi-Fi internet access only. I'd guess this can't be done, but wanted to ask the experienced Droid users.

    Actually, if it is like the D1, you can use it as a wifi device only.... You can go online, use the market and everything else that requires wifi but you will not be able to make calls or send texts...

    Every smartphone requires a data plan.
