    I want to buy a Moto x 2014 unlocked no contract and activate voice only /I am presently out of contract/ want keep existing phone # but use only WiFi while here in the States.I travel most of the year and will be using local SIM cards wherever I am.This is the most economical way and I would not have to pay for Verizons data plans.Can this be done?

    You cannot do it without buying a data plan, however you can buy the cheapest plan and then have data blocked so it is unusable. One note, on many devices this would prevent you from receiving MMS, such as pictures or group texts - and some OTA software updates only come across mobile data.

    Welcome to the forums. I don't think what you want to do can be done.

    thanks for the info. Presently I use a basic phone with Verizon and I only would need whatever I am getting now.the main reason of me wanting to buy a smart phone is that I could use it overseas with local SIM cards.As it is now I have to carrie a phone and my iPad which I use to get Internet connection.To get a short term/month-month/data plan in Europe is MUCH LESS expensive then here in the States.

    If the phone is capable of data, they won't give you a non-data plan. Get as cheap an Android phone as will work for you (speed, RAM, storage, European frequencies) and use it in Europe.
