I want a Smartphone without a Data plan??

Is there any carrier who offers a good quality Smartphone without requiring a Data Plan?

I've been with Verizon for 15 years using Basic phones. I really would like to have a quality phone -- good camera, music player, good call quality, good speaker, larger capacitance glass touch screen.

But I have no need for a Data plan. One would think there's a way to do this. Verizon has no such option though.

Are all cell phone carriers the same as Verizon? I could pay Verizon an additional $30 a month for a Data Plan and get a free iPhone 4, but that's a wasted $720 over two years!

Thanks for any suggestions.

My mom got a text from AT&T saying "CoolCellBids" will be renewing our subscription next month. It's $9.99 a month (I believe) and she never signed up for it in the first place. Apparently this is happening to a lot of AT&T customers. Does anyone else know about this?

Buy/Sell forum?

Just a quick idea I thought I'd throw out there for the P.S. users. How about a buy/sell forum? I'm looking to swap my Sprint SERO line for some form of AT&T or T-Mobile demo line and the only website that seems to offer this kind of market is cell trade USA but they want money.

Obviously I'd recommend this be limited to individuals not business as they should be sponsors but just an idea.

Droid or Atrix?

Brief rundown:

I own a Lapdock for my old Motorola ARTIX 4G and love it because my phone could keep perpetually charged battery.

Now I need a new phone.

I will have to find an accessory for lapdock compatibility, and I know they are out there somewhere.

What is best?
B.) Atrix HD
C.) Droid RAZR HD
D.) Something else and please be specific.

I can use any service provider.

I understand the Webtop might not be available, but that is okay if the phone runs being mirrored.

Sony Xperia Z Review and How to Play Blu-ray Movies on Xperia Z

We're barely a few days into 2013 but that hasn't stopped smartphones from being announced. Sony is one of the first off the block with Xperia Z, the company's new flagship Android phone. With the hope to change its poor position on smartphone world and place itself amongst the stars, Sony is with all its forces to make Xperia Z a wonder in 2013 and even make it stack up against with the established kings of Google's castle like Galaxy S3, HTC One X. So how does this latest flagship Android device compare to its peers? Take a gander at my review.

Announced at CES 2013, this new handset takes over the role of its predecessor Xperia T and meanwhile it is toting an impressive set of specs. Now let us go in for a closer look.

Seeking dumb phone as data gateway for multiple devices

Dear Phone Scoop Forum Members.

After much reading, I don't find a clear solution. I know how to tether a PC through a dumb phone, using Bluetooth DUN. Or tether a tablet through a smart phone using either WiFi or BT-PAN.

But what if I want my tablet to connect through a dumb phone? The dumb phone would be for calls. The tablet for browsing.

Imagine I have the tablet.
And want to buy a rugged simple dumb phone, and plan, for calling and data.
I'm willing to pay for a tethering plan... cost is not the object, ease of setup is.
What models, plans (in the USA), and settings are needed?

Keywords: feature phone, WiFi tethering, Bluetooth DUN, BT-PAN.
