    thinking of buying a droid have some questions

    Say, I was going to buy a used driod 1, and I have t mobile existing normal phone contract. Can I use the droid as a just a phone, except when I have my home wi fi broadcasting, and use the droid for internet on it.

    In other words I would be using the internet on the droid only when there is a wi fi connection around, and just as a phone when there isnt a wifi.

    Thanks in advance.

    When you Add the Droid to the plan you will be required to get the unlimited data package for smart phones.

    I'm pretty sure you can't use the droid 1 on t mobile . And if you could they would require it have a data plan.

    I missed the t mobile part, the D1 won't work on your network.

    Any phones branded as "Droid" (D1, D2, DX, DPro, etc) are all Verizon phones and thus have a CDMA antenna inside of them. T-Mobile runs GSM, but offers several phones running the Android OS (just nothing branded Droid since that is specific to VZW).

    All of the Android phones will require getting a data plan upon purchase or activation. VZW does offer a 150 mb/mon plan, which would work for your purposes, but it is a plan that is highly recommended for those who are going to use Wi-Fi on the phone rather than data since these devices suck down the Mb like water.

    If you absolutely have to stay on T-Mo, I'd suggest looking into a used Nexus One. Its still stock Android like the D1, but supports GSM. Being its a Google phone (more so than any other), it'll also get any OS updates before any other phone. However, you will probably still be required to get a data plan from T-Mo.
