If I buy this and use it on a AT&T Family Plan (With No Data), will AT&T detect this as a Smart Phone and add the data plan automatically? I just need a decent android smartphone with wifi (without data plan on AT&T)
They will not. Just go to your account online, block data. Then when you get your unlocked phone data will not be added automatically. We did that with our phones.
There is an option to block data usage, but that's only for non-smartphones, and it doesn't do a thing if they know you switched to a smartphone. AT&T will automatically add the data plan if they have your IMEI in their database as a smartphone. If not, then you can get away with it by having no data plan, or even signing up for "MediaNet unlimited data for non-smartphones" for $15 per month.
you'll have to search around the forums and see if this phone is detected as a smartphone by AT&T. Best is to look for a list of phones that are not detected, then buy that one.
The camera, CPU, and screen are all downgrades but this will soon be available at every Wal-Mart for $100. I think the comments about "right" price are the closest, though the fact that this is a Google Nexus will ensure that it does likely sell out.
