[ale] Moving my Wife/Kids phones into the 20th Century



Neal,

I don't think any of them will directly sell an Android phone without a
data plan. However, there's noting stopping you from getting a regular
phone and putting the sim card in an android. Obviously that limits carrier
choice though. Also, since Android expects a data connection, you might
have to make sure data is not even an "on demand" option on the account.
