I have an original Droid which I got when they were first sold by Verizon. Is it possible to use this phone with an AT&T account? Thanks.
No. Verizon is CDMA, ATT is GSM. Totally different.

Thanks for the info. I'm trying desperately to lower my cell phone bill. I have a Droid which I use very little - just a few calls, a few texts and an occasional internet access. I really just need a phone that does texting. Same with my wife. Right now our bill is $140 but our usage is really low. I find the Verizon site pretty confusing. We also have an iPad and do some RVing. Anyhow, I'll figure it out. Thanks.
Give them a call and see if you can save some money.

I believe you can change your data plan from the 29.99/mo unl. to ~$15/mo for 250mb or something around there and then additional charges for every mB over that.
It might save you money initially but if you have an overage it's gonna hit you hard, it think it's somewhere around 1.99 per mB once you go over, it's absolutely insane.
Another option it you can always get a regular phone and just keep the Droid for use on wifi.
Thanks to you both. I'm looking into the 250 meg deal. Matter of fact, I'm trying now to figure what my average use would be. What's this on keeping the droid as a wifi? Would that mean I wouldn't have to have a data plan? Guess I better stop by the Verizon store to get this figured out. I was thinking about just giving the Droid to my daughter. Thanks.
You can always set up Google Voice to make calls and/or texts over the internet (read carefully however as you can incur charges)
... and you can't get rid of the data plan completely and still keep ANY smartphone on VZW activated. At the very minimum you have to have the 250mb plan.
I believe it's a 150 mb plan for $15. (Unless they changed this and I missed it, which is possible.) If you could finagle an upgrade for you and your wife's lines, I wonder if they'd let you drop down to a feature phone. They're always giving those things away for free.
