    Anyway to do this?

    Is there anyway to hack the motorola droid so I can use it without a verizon data plan and go on the internet and get email via wifi?

    Someone what hacking/jailbreaking does for iphone users?

    I have a blackberry storm and cant afford the data but I really need internet and wifi.

    So youre asking us if we can hack into verizon and turn off your required data plan with the phone? So you canmake calls but have no data plan?

    You can buy the phone outright.

    there is a way to do this, if you buy the phone retail... you may need to do some searching, but the codes/commands are here somewhere. and it doesn't require rooting...

    question, you can afford a $600 phone but not a $30 data plan?

    So now you're looking at a $350 early termination fee, because VZW is probably going to throw a spit-fit when you try to cancel services on your "free" Droid.

    If they are giving you a droid as a replacement explain the situation. They are probably going to force you either way. As previously stated, they may try to hit you with the ETF.

    Well when I spoke to them I said that I would like to lower my plan to the $10.00 a month family share plan and that I was going to sell the driod once they gave it to me. They had no problem with me saying this.

    I am not terminating any plan, just lowering it.

    My cousin has an iphone that he has hacked so he is only paying for a regular phone plan by using wifi, he paid the min but had email and internet.

    I wanted to know if anyone hacked that same feature on the droid. Can I activate it using the $10.00 a month plan and also use the wifi.

    Thank you wuyanks I will keep looking also, If anyone has the diy steps on how to do this PLEASE PLEASE let me know.

    Basically what you want to do is shut off all data over the main radio save for calls.

    As verizon requires everyone to have a data plan that owns the phone, I seriously doubt that you'll find someone to take the time to disable in and outbound data on the phone over CDMA.

    Basically, you're not going to be able to use the phone without the plan, and when you get the new one from your Verizon swap, I can almost guarentee that they'll activate the 30 a month plan, and when you attempt to cancel you will have to pay the 350 ETF.

    Sorry bud.

    EDIT: Good news and bad news buddy. As long as you're willing to not recieve calls on this thing, you can type in *#*#4636#*#* and select phone information. Scroll down to the bottom and hit Turn off radio.

    This will allow your phone to continue to use Wifi, but have no network access via Verizon. Is that what you're looking for? You wont be able to make or recieve calls using this method.
