Can I get a blackberry for Verizon without the expensive data plan? Is there one available for Verizon that can hop on wifi?

I'm not much of a talker (on the phone). I barely use my allotted minutes each month. I'm grandfathered into this old dirt cheap plan. Combine that with a government employee discount and I pay about 40 bucks a month. I don't want to change that.
I'm afraid that if I get a new blackberry with Verizon, they will automatically slap a data plan on there and double my monthly bill. I spend close to 10 hours a day online and I don't need to fill the rest with my phone.
However, it would be nice to have a full keyboard, and be able to check email on wifi (I spend a lot of time in places with free wifi) without dragging my laptop everywhere.
If such a phone exists, I would probably grab it on ebay just so I don't change my plan. Ideas/suggestions?
