Can I use a smartphone without a data plan?

I'd like to get a nice new shiny toy but I am on quite a good mobile contract just now.

You want to use online services with WiFi alone? Sure, why not. Also, many networks will let you keep your old contract and sell you a data add-on that doesn't affect your contract's tariff agreement. Check with your provider.

My wife has no data on her o2 contract with her Galaxy S. The chances of her needing the data when she's out and about plus she knows she can always pop in macdonalds, starbucks etc for wifi when she's away from home. she's happy with it for a limited budget to have more minutes and texts. But as Jan says it's probably available on your existing providers options to add data if you think you'll need it.
