Tidbits, thanks for helping us support Pierce69 with information regarding activating a smartphone on our network. A data plan is definitely needed due to the Internet access and multimedia functions of that Smartphone. The MORE Everything plan allows multiple devices to share the data plan allowance.

Verizon will not activate a smart phone without a data plan attached.

However if you are on the new shared plans you technically don't add data plans you just add access fees.

I guess it's all about your plan how it is handled.

Technically if you are the More Everything plans you don't need to ADD a data plan since it comes with one already. Since the majority of Verizon customers are on this plan it's possible the rep was just confused.

And most reps wouldn't have a clue as to that plan since very small percentage of customers are on it and it's not in the system.
