I honestly don't believe there are any more loopholes w/ Verizon. AFAIK their entire current lineup of smartphones do require a data plan of some kind. If any sort of 'grandfather' loophole does exist, you may have had to previously have a smartphone registered on their network prior to a certain date. Just to be certain, check in the Verizon sub-forum @ howardforums.com.
Another way around it would be to port over to Page Plus cellular (prepaid) and bring in a Verizon smartphone of your choice (ebay, craigslist, etc.). They don't require data plans, but won't always let certain handsets register. The entire Verizon coverage area is available to you though via PP.
Well the my phone died due to water damaged and i went to my local verizon store and i found out that i don't have insurance on that phone so they suggested me to buy a phone on ebay. Well the phone that died is a LG enV2 and i have always wanted a smartphone but i don't want to have data charges so are there any phones out like smartphones or are smartphones that do not require data plans?
