Do you need a data plan for the LG enV3?

Nisee

I am currently in the market for a phone, since my current Verizon phone (Motorola MOTORIZR) is starting to die. I really want the LG enV3 (Maroon) phone, but there seems to be confusion whether or not you can activate the phone without a data plan. I don't have the finances to buy a iPhone or anything fancy and I'm already part of my Fiance's parents Verizon plan. I just want want to know if this phone is compatible with a non data plan, so I can switch phones. ¡Gracias!

No, it doesn't require a data plan, but if you try to activate the phone on-line, it may ask you to choose a data plan since one used to be required.  Choose a plan, activate the phone, and then immediately call Customer Service and have them remove the data plan and put a data block on the phone.  Or you may prefer to have the phone activated at your local Corporate Verizon store or by calling Customer Service.

Nope it doesn't require a data package. Swapping phones won't cost you anything more than you are paying today

It use to be a considered a media phone which did require it, but that was a long time ago. Now all "basic" phones don't require a data package

I was trying to find this out as well. My friend had the Env3 and when she first got it she didn't need data for it, I think that was before they introduced data for the "Multimedia" phones.

Anyway, at the time my upgrade hadn't come around yet and I tried activating her old Env in July/August of 2012 and it said I had to have data. Since we were going on a little trip we stopped at a verizon store and the guy in the store tried activating it and he said the same thing: I had to have data.

I keep hearing you don't have to have it yet apparently you do. Unless it depends on the phone you get?

They have dropped the data on the ENV3 a few years ago so you can buy a used one and activate without data.  My friend just got one and no trouble activating.  I got mine before the data requirement so didn't have to worry then shortly after I got mine they dropped the data requirement.   If you activate one you will see it's true.  If it doesn't activate over the phone you just have to go into the store and have them do it.   I don't know why people don't understand that phone has not required data for a few years now.   Mary

Well it didn't work over the phone and I did go into a store but it still required a data plan and this was 5 or 6 months ago.

We are talking about the ENV3 right?   Have had mine at least 2yrs data free and got hubby one last Christmas used and store activated it data free and friend bought a used one a few months ago and store activated that data free so can"t understand why you can't get it activated data free.  Try a different store or call customer service and have them activate it.  Did you try logging in online and activating that way?  Are you sure it's the ENV3.  Sounds like it may not be that model if they want to add data.  Mary

Yes it is the Env3 in maroon, no way its the env2 because you never needed data for the env2. I tried calling it in and said I needed data and tried online saying the same thing and the guy in the verizon store said the same thing.

Perhaps it's a bug with some of the phones.
