I apologize if this question has already been asked, but I couldn't find it anywhere and I am really curious as to the answer! I'm on a Verizon family plan and my non-smart phone is due for an upgrade. This means I could get an iPhone at the discounted price. Of course, I'd also have to start paying for data, which I do not currently. My question is: if I use the phone for a few months and then decide it's not worth the data charge, can I cancel the data portion of my plan and switch back to my dumb phone, but KEEP the iphone and use it as an iTouch (wifi only, no phone features). Or will Verizon force me to pay two full years' worth of data even if I'm back to using my dumb phone? On the one hand, it seems unfair that someone could potentially have their brand new iphone stolen or lost and then be forced to pay two years of data despite not even having a smart phone. On the other hand, the scenario above would essentially allow someone to own the iPhone and use it as an iTouch, all for the discounted price. I've been trying to get a straight answer about this for ages and nobody seems to know, not even a Verizon employee that I spoke with. Somebody PLEASE help me!
