I just recently bought a centro on ebay and did a ton of research about it's data plan and came to a conclusion that this phone seems to not require a data because it was released before a certain date. I do not want a data plan and i was just wondering how to transfer my plan onto this phone and not get the data? Should i do this online or should i contact customer service? What should i say to customer service if i do decide to contact them?
You should contact customer service to have national access blocked for this phone. When done you should be able to switch between this phone and any other compatible smartphone or feature phone by dialing *228. That is, if they will still activate it that way. There are still a few older smartphpnes that did not require the data feature however, blocking national access is the safest way to insure you do not incur accidental charges. Keep in mind that you will no longer be able to send picture messages as well.
