    I want to buy a smartphone off of ebay and activate it on Verizon wireless’ website. I currently have the basic $39.99 plan. Will Verizon detect that my new phone is a smartphone and automatically upgrade me to a data plan? I don’t need the data features, I just really like the smartphone.Thanks
