No, you do not have to get a data plan. You can take the Canada-wide Talk & Text plan which does not include data. You will be charged for data if-and-only-if you use data. To prevent being charged for data, you would need to disable data on the iPhone, or apply a data block on your account (which would also prevent picture texting)
Bell will say anything to keep you!! the cheeper plan with iphone there is $70 thank you for your help

Nah you dont need data. data is usually required on 3year contracts for iPhones though. Try the koodo tab! its great!

An iPhone without Data however, kind of ruins the whole purpose of a smartphone. You don't have to get a data plan as Koodo does not lock you into contracts with that so you're good but I highly recommend it! 🙂

Many people don't need a lot in terms of mins and just prefer to pay less on the bill. Therefore choose the $30 plan and turn on the data on your phone or block it. You can always use wifi as much as you want.

It would likely depend on the carrier/what plans they currently offer. WIth Telus (Unless you are renewing with a grandfathered plan of a certain value) they require you to go on a Shareplus plan (which either requires a data add on, or shares from a data package on the same account). Thus there is a requirement for data. Thankfully with Koodo, as long as you don't take the large tab, you are not required to have data.
