are you forced to purchase a data plan with a smartphone

also, im eligible for my new every two soon, so with the price being 199 after instant 100 rebate, does that mean i can use my new everytwo to knock it down to 99?

Sort of... and yes....
You do not have to "purchase" a data plan but you must have a data feature on your account. You may purchase" 44.99 unlimited or 24.99 for 10 MB or choose not to "purchase" anything and all and data usage will be pay as you go at $0.015 a KB. If you are planning on using any data (and why would you buy a smart phone if you are not?), then getting one of the 2 features you are "forced to purchase" will more than pay for itself.

..and you are interpreting the new every 2 correctly.

Sorry but yo are incorrect. You can't combine promotions. The $100 istant rebate for adding unlimited data cant be combined with New E 2.

Actually, I am sorry to disagree, but rebates and the new every 2 absolutely can and are combined.

You are correct as far as mail in rebates. But as far as the 100 dollar Advanced data device promo, you cannot combine with new e 2. Read the M&P under Advance data device promo.

You sir, are correct. Either $100 credit for adding $44.99 unlimted data plan and/or core bundled America choice plan.

Or... NE2 can be used if valid and 10 Megs or .015 kb pay as go feature can be added.

A Pix message using .015kb pay as go feature will ave 75-90 cents at ave file size 50-70 kb.

One really good reason for wanting a smart phone is so that you can combine the capabilities of a PDA with a phone, and just carry one device around. You don't need a data plan for many o...

im kind of confused about the rebate stuff... i thought the 100 bucks was kind of like a instant rebate for signing a two year... and i didnt really think the new every 2 was a promotion... also what exactly does the 10mbs entail? is it so that it counts the kbs of an email, downloading pictures etc? sorry bout all the questions im just confused

hope it does come out on the 30th cuz i wanna get it that day... 😁

I apologize about the other person but they are incorrect about not combining. The new every 2 and the rebate are absolutely combined therefore a phone that is 299.99 with a 100.00 rebate and the new every 2 is "200.00" off bringing it to a total after rebate of 99.99. Sorry for any confusion.
The 10MB plan allows for the back and forth transfer of data (including picture messaging). A casual user (someone who logs onto the internet maybe once a week or doesn't load pages with a lot of graphics) would be fine with the package. I usually recommend to people that they start with the unlimited if they are going to be using data on the phone because most people (including myself), have no real feel for what 10MB would be. It is only 20.00 more...

wrong. You cannot combine NE2 and Advanced data discount 100%. Call customer service and ask for yourself. And PLEASE do not post the incorrect facts.

If the upgrade is done online...my understanding is that we still honor the newe2 credit and the instant rebate will be discounted...orders done online only. 😎

If the REPS THEMSELVES can't even figure out what the customer is going to charged....

🤣

Just please remember this all of the Verizon reps on this board who love to berate their customers who call wanting to know why their bill is twice as high as they thought it would be.

There really is no reason the cell phone industry has to be as complicated as the tax code. But since it is, make sure you call three times if you have a customer service question and take the average of the responses you are given. And if a rep promises something too good to be true, make sure you get in writing so you have proof to make them waive the $ 175 fee when your plan turns out to be much more expensive than advertised.
