Do you have to get a data plan with a smartphone?
I'm getting a new phone.
You don't have to buy a data plan to get the smart phone, but usually this means you pay a lot more for the phone. You can buy an LG Thrive Go-Phone, which doesn't have to come with a data plan but it can use Wi-Fi.
No, I'm pretty sure you don't have to...but isn't that what makes a smart phone....smart?
It's cheaper to get the service with the carrier. AT&T is 30 bucks a month. That is all u will need. Along with the package it will cost u about 110 bucks total.
With sprint you have to get data plan with smart phone... Don't know bout other carriers.
