    What happens to my droid if I cancel my Verizon plan?

    With AT&T, if you cancel your cell phone plan and you have an iphone, your iphone basically becomes an ipod touch. You lose the phone functionality, but over wifi you can do pretty much everything you could before. Is this the same for the droid? I'm switching back to my iphone, but i'd still love to use the droid for vids/photos/apps/games/etc. And i'd still like to buy apps, read news, download feeds etc over wifi. Will I be able to? I've tried already putting my phone in airplane mode and turning wifi on and everything still works, but i'm worried that if i cancel my VZ plan, they'll magically do something to my phone that renders it useless.

    Anyone know?
    Thanks.

    I'd call VZW and verify, but you bought the phone outright, so whatever you can do with it is just fine. I would expect that it would operate as it usually does, but without the cell signal -- I could be wrong though.

    ok. that sort of helps but not really. asking VZ is questionable b/c when I asked AT&T if i could use my iphone as an ipod touch after cancelling, they incorrectly said no. We've got two extra iphones with no cell/data plans around the house that work perfectly as ipod touches.

    Pick up the phone and call VZW. I dont know why you think anyone here will know better than they will...

    I've been misguided by forums many more times than I've been misguided by a CSR.

    I don't see why it wouldn't work on wifi alone. Makes sense to me. I don't know about downloading apps though. I guess you could.

    When I discontinued my service with AT&T, like you, I was able to use my iPhone with my wifi. I'm not positive but I believe I was able to do email.

    I'm guessing the same would apply with the Droid.

    Ok Dad. I'll call VZW. hahaha, just kidding...not trying to be irritating. I will call VZW and ask, but i guess your experience with CSR's has been better than mine. I usually get people who don't know as much as i do. Guess i'll be the guinea pig. I should point out that i still like my droid and plan on using it b/c i still think android is amazing.

    Haha, no worries. Really though, I think it'll just operate like it always does, since it's been activated. I'd love to know what a CSR tells you....
