    Hey
    I was going to get my dad a new phone for his birthday. The droid incredible has become around 350 dollars without a contract, ranging up to 420. I expect the same to happen to the droid 2 by July (dad's bday).
    However, I do not want to have to try and force him to get a data plan, which he won't do.
    I know all VZW smartphones require a dataplan, but that's for new ones, meaning on the shelf. THe discontinued models, like the lg dare, are smartphones and they do not have to get a data plan. When the droid 1 or the droid 2 is discontinued, will I have to get a data plan on them, or no?

    Thanks

    First and foremost, the LG Dare isn't a smartphone.

    Second, any smartphone released before September, 2008, doesn't require a data plan. However, any smartphone released after that date, discontinued or not, requires a data plan.
