Smartphone without a data plan

Is there a way to use a smartphone without a data plan?  Like you can remote the text messaging option.  Can you remove the data plan? Tmobile carrier in this case.

But does that mean the carrier wouldn't change me for the data plan? Only voice?

Ipad is different.  I understand with smartphones the carriers do detect your phone type automatically and turn your data plan on.  
I can call confirm with them though.
