Xperia mini pro u20i - Will I be forced to get a data plan?

Is it true that the u20i (international version) of the mini pro does not support 3G?

 

I want to buy this phone but don't have a data plan. I simply want to make calls, sent text messages, and on occasion browse the internet using wifi.  I am hoping that because this is the international version and does not support 3G that I will be able to use it on AT&T in the US without a data plan.

 

Does anyone know if this is possible?

You should be good without data plan but I would suggest some care and vigilance.  PPU data is a bit expensive and your plan is to use none.  Your task is set data off and you probably better check it regularly.  I use an Xperia X8 with GingerDX and really let 'er loose on wifi.  Not just light surfing but mail, youtube, and streams.  If you get your data over wifi it does not show up on your bill so use all you want.

You are correct,it will only use EDGE. Only phones with an "a" (eg U20a) have the proper HSPA,3G settings.
