A very OLD refurbished phone, why would anyone buy this? Some newer phone are sold as NEW for like $50 or so more, and they have much better specs, camera & display,, I wouldn't recommend anybody to buy this thing!

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)
To answer your question,No,AT&T won't detect this phone as a Smart Phone.I used this phone for almost 2 years and never had a problem with AT&T hassling me about adding on a data plan.
It's not misinformation. They tried to get me to do that in the past. It takes a firm tone and a non-subjective personality to refuse it. They don't actually KNOW what kind of phone you're using. If you're using a standard t-mobile build, that allows them to do the text message query garbage then maybe. So what? Don't let them charge you for something you're not using.
If you are using a phone that AT&T sells, they do KNOW because they have a database of all the IMEI numbers of phones they sell. They will identify the phone you have by IMEI and if it is a smartphone they will automatically add a smartphone data plan. This is common knowledge and I can't believe people are trying to delude others into thinking otherwise. "It takes a firm tone and a non-subjective personality to refuse it." BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Next, why don't you tell me the Sun rises in the west and sets in the east.
This is a little misleading. They can force you to use a smart phone data plan when they detect you are using a smartphone (they can check IMEI numbers, etc and ID phones if they want), but they can only do this IF you are using a smartphone with a non-smartphone data plan.
You're trying to say that you can use an AT&T-detected smartphone without any data plan at all? That's patently false. AT&T requires all smartphone users to get data. They do not offer a data-free option. I won't dignify your false claim by saying anymore.
