    Hi my son is needing a new phone and would like 1 with wifi but no data plan, with 5 phones on our account I do not want to give AT&T any more money then they are already getting from me. Is there a phone out there that fits this description ?

    well you can go with bb unlocked phones or if not get it unlocked.for eg bb 9100 3g has wifi in it u can buy that nd get it unlocked.i use same phone with rogers and dnt pay anything for data plan.but only minus point here is u wont be able to setup emails in blackberry even if u have wifi .u have to manually open emails in browser and check it

    There are a lot of wifi phones out there from several different manufacturers. Is there any other specific features that your son is particular in having? Sahil is right, Blackberry is a great option although if your son is still young I bet he wants to get a more stylish phone. In my case I am using a Sony Xperia X10 that is factory unlocked that I bought from timtechs- meaning no data plan just like what you needed.

    Sahil, is the bb pearl 9100 the only BB model i could get that has wifi and no data required if its unlocked?

    Hachiko, how long have you had your phone. Whats happen to us in the past is we thought the phone he was using was safe from having the data plan but AT&T did a sweep and sent a txt saying that the plan has been added.

    Hatchiko is right, we need to know what specific features your son wants besides wifi, and how much is the budget if I may add. I got my phone from timtechs too (what a small world) ... I got my galaxy is which is complete with features that I need. Please tell us how much is your budget so that we can suggest a rage of phones to choose from.

    My budget is up to $225 and I would like it to be new or like new condition. The phones he's had in the past have had camera/video,touch screen mp3 music, vibe alert, pretty much the usual things but he's wanting wifi and he dont want a slider phone,thank you both for helping me, I really appreciate it.
