I found a list of phones but I believe its outdated. Here's a copy...
any news on phones to add to the list... or take away from it?
These are all the feature phones that we currently offer. Feature phones are phones that do not require data features of $9.99 or $29.99.
Verizon Wireless CDM8975
Samsung Gusto™ in Purple
Verizon Wireless Salute™
Verizon Wireless Escapade®
Samsung Intensity™ II in Metallic Blue
Motorola Barrage™ Non–Camera
Yes, that list is outdated; quite a number of retired basic phones + multimedia phones that aren't included ... a few that come to mind are:
Add the LG Voyager and Samsung Sway to the list
And there are several older LG models I am aware of (flip phones) that don't need a data plan...
LG 5200 (my Mom still uses this one!)
LG 5400 (hubby has this one)
LG 3300 (I think? my daughter's old phone)
Thank you for sharing your list of phones that don't need a data plan! We also have a great current line up of basic phones (previously called feature phones) at http://bit.ly/9wnhDM currently available for purchase from Verizon Wireless. Basic phones have an option to add a data plan if you have an older calling plan, or would also be able to share data from the Share Everything http://bit.ly/LWsodg plan. Smartphones (Androids, iPhones, Windows, Blackberry, Palm) do need a data plan because of how data oriented they are and all the great services offered for the devices.

I have a Verizon account for me ,my wife and 3 kids.Luckily, I had unlimited data on my and my wife's phone...So upon ,needing a new phone ,I bought mine & my wife's from ebay...now my kids have grown and when I needed to get them smart phones, Verizon said that I need to buy data plan which would cost me +$120 more..
I had my old Droid 2 Global and Motorola Devour..and you know what..I activated them with PagePlus for my 2 kids with a monthly plan and autorefill..It did cost me less than $30 for both and no taxes...and the funny thing is that PagePlus runs on Verizon Towers......
I honestly, don't know how Verizon is still in business....when PagePlus gets unlimited Data like SimpleMobile and StraightTalk...I am out of here.
So now I have 2 Smartphones activated with Page Plus @ 12 plan, 250 minutes+250 Texts and 200 MB of data for $12 each.Activation took 2 minutes and was for $4 / phone.Lines are Crisp like Verizon so far...went to the mountains and still got signal..
