AT&T Cuts BlackBerry Prices in Half, Including the Nice New Ones

Had enough holiday smartphone deals? Of course you haven't. AT&T's cutting prices on pretty much their entire line of BlackBerrys, including the recently released Bold 9700 and Curve 8900. The sale starts today, December 4th, and doesn't seem to have a definite end date. [AT&T]

DISCUSSION

Quick question. Do you NEED to have a data plan/texting plan in order to buy a Blackberry? I bought a BB before and i didnt need one but the Costco shack guy told me I needed one. Is this true? Was that bastard lying to me?
