Disable Data Service?

Hi, I've been with ATT for over 2 years now. My question is now that im available for an upgrade, can i upgrade my LG incite for a Motorola Atrix w/o data service?

**I had always had data disabled (even after they required it) and do not plan on using data services what so ever.

Thanks!

No a data plan is required for a smartphone, no way around it.

Unfortunately no. You currently have a data exception that lets you to use a smartphone without requiring a Data Plan, but if you change your device to another phone, even if you don't upgrade, that exception will be removed and you will be required a Data Plan if you use a new smartphone.

 

And you won't be able to recove it if you return to your Incite, if you also have that question. Hope this helps.
