Maybe this is yesterday's news, but I just called Verizon about something and the guy told me that I no longer had to carry $9.99 monthly data on my kids' qwerty phones and that I could block data so they couldn't accidentally access it. Previously, I was told I had to carry this on their EnV3s. He said it is no longer mandatory and changed 2 of my phones, saving me $20 per month. "Feature phones" no longer require mandatory data. Only 'smart phones' require a monthly data plan.
