Can anyone tell me the easiest way to figure out if a phone requires a data plan. I know the smartphones do but some of the messaging phone dont but require messaging. My parents dont need or want either package. Or if anyone has any suggestions. He likes candy bar and she likes touch (she has the older soltisce). I am considering the LGA340 because that is all I can find that does require the packages. Thanks in advance!
Only Smartphones require a data plan. Any basic or Quick Messaging phone will not require data. To avoid unwanted charges from accidentally hitting the button to access data, you can block data use (unfortunately also blocks MMS - Picture/Video messages).
