I posted this question on verizon community. Edward was nice enough to
respond (see below). I tried to reply (as the bottom of his email says I
can do) and it bounced. So I clicked on Verizon Community from his link,
and it brings up the discussion but does not let me reply and if I click on
Actions, I get an error. If I click on 'view the full discussion' I get
so ... very frustrating ... I am trying to swap the flip phone on my plan
for an old iphone 4 for my 94 year old mom, but do not want data as she
just needs phone and text. I hope you can help.
iphone 4 and do NOT want a data plancreated by Verizon Wireless Customer

That is an excellent question as we want you to have all of the information
need to make the best decision for you. The iPhone 4 is a smart phone and
all smart phones do need to have access to data on our plans. If you are
already on a plan that has a shared amount of data you will be able to
activate that phone without adding any additional data. Now if your plan
doesn’t have any shared data as part of the plan, the line will need its
own data plan. What is the name of the family plan you are currently on?

thanks so much for your response ... we are on the "The Verizon Plan Medium
3GB" plan for $45. We have 4 lines and the other three use data. I see
the unlimited plan for 4 lines is $160 so it would probably be cheaper just
to get data on the line that doesn't use it ....?
