How on the Droid, can I turn the Verizon network off and just use WiFi?
If you turn WiFi on, then your phone should use the WiFi for all data as long as it is active. You'll still be connected to Verizon to receive voice calls but your data will all be going through the WiFi and not the 3G data network.
Does that answer your question?
I'm just getting skype .. as stated there's no way to turn off the SERVICE of verizon. You can however just enable WiFi and it will use that for it's data source, without using verizons network.
Resistance is futile.

Jono Check it out:
Press and hold the power button on top of the Droid, Next tap airplane mode (this turns your cell radio off but allows other device functions). Once airplane mode is active (you will see signal icon on notifications bar change from active bars to bars with a little plane on it). Next, turn on wi-fi and connect to whatever network is nearby.
When this is done you will be using wifi, but not transmitting or receiving cell signals, effectively turning off Verizon. If you ever used a HTC 8525, Tilt, fuse, touch pro, touch diamond, and all other windows mobile devices with wifi you will be very familar with this process.
