Is there anyway I can use my current Smartphone with no data plan ?

Hi,

 

I think I have to buy a regular phone so I don't have to pay for a data plan, but I just want to make sure before I go out and buy another phone.

 

Basically, is there anyway I can use my current smartphone (Samsung Focus S) as a "Regular Phone" so I don't have to pay a montly data plan. Could I just turn of the data usage on the phone?

 

I hardly use my data plan, which is why I want to cancel it. I only use my phone under WiFi. 

 

Or no matter what, do you have to have a data plan for smart phones?

 

If I can just limit my smartphone to talk and text, i am ok with that too if that means no data plan fees.

Unfortunately, No, at least not on regular phone plans. It can only be done on the pay as you go plans.

You can chat with someone online about your current plans. You can change your plan, possibly there is a better cheaper plan you could be on. They have a plan if you with unlimited text unlimited talk and 300mb of data. This is a plan called Mobile Share I actually have this plan because I have wifi at home, so I don't really use a lot of phone data it's $70 a month.
