Data plan for Smartphones that are not Iphone, HTC, Blackberry?

Okay, so i plan to buy a unlocked smartphone from Verizon and put my sim card into the GSM and i was wondering if i still had to buy the data plan for it?  It is a LG Fathom.  I plan to buy it completely new from Amazon.

That is a Verizon world capable phone. Even it is unlocked for the GSM SIM card, it might still be locked from being used on US carriers. You would be better off getting a pure unlocked GSM phone.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

Okay then, lets say i get a LG Vu Plus, it is considered a smartphone by AT&T correct? Since it's a smartphone, i MUST buy data plan for the LG Vu PLus?

A quick Google search leads me to think that the LG Vu Plus is a QMD phone. It may or may not require a data plan. From a review at the time of its release it looked like users were required to have a data plan, but it was different from a smartphone data package.

Hopefully someone else will weigh in on the phone. I am not super familiar with the older ATT phones.

The LG Vu Plus is not a smartphone and at&t has eliminated the messaging/data plan requirement for QMDs.  So you can use that device with no additional services required. Smiley Happy

There must be a happy medium somewhere between being totally informed and blissfully unaware.
