I am on AT&T myself. You are NOT required to get a data plan just because the phone can get on the internet. Compared to the Iphone which IS required to get a data plan.

BUT pay per use internet will probably get added on. There is no monthly charge for it. You would only get charged if you transmitted any data. And if memory serves it gets charged at 1 cent per kilobyte transmitted.

The phone does have GPS. and one of the ways it uses to determine your location is by using the cell phone network. That is called A-GPS (assisted GPS). That DOES use a little bit of data. But you can easily turn off the option to use A-GPS.
