they do not place data blocks on smartphones, a smartphone requires a data plan. A gophone solution does not require a data plan for a smartphone

@wingrider01 is correct. AT&T requires Data Plans for all post-paid devices. If you do not have a data-plan on your line, and you switch to a smartphone, AT&T will modify your account to add a compatible data plan. For Go-Phone plans, the data is optional regardless of the phone.
