Prepaid Palm Centro no data

Does anybody know if this statement is still valid? 

"Smart Phones and PDA's BEFORE 2008 DON'T NEED a data plan"

I recently got a phone on ebay because it stated that no contract was needed.  Now I find that I need a data plan to activate my phone.  I am on prepaid and only use my phone a couple of times a week.  I wanted the Centro because I am tired of carrying around a phone and my palm.  Since my phone and palm are getting tired I decided to get a Centro.  Love It!  Can't afford any plan.  Can we pay as we go on the data or block it completely? Can anyone help me?

Hi Tuppercarol,


The Palm Centro is an older Smartphone, but this device is one of the few that do not need a data package. If you have a data package and would like to remove it, please send me a private message with your first and last name, your mobile number, and a good contact number for you. I will be happy to contact you, go over your account, and make any necessary changes. 


With the Palm Centro, you have the ability to use the data on a pay-as-you-go basis, or it can be blocked altogether. 


I hope this information is helpful. Have a great day!
