" It's Alive, It's Alive "
Here's a new twist, well to me anyway.
I just fired up my "Old", no longer activated Droid 1, to copy over a file from it to my X.
While it was sitting on the table, I noticed an LED blinking.
It felt like a scene from a Horror Flick. Suddenly my dead monster had a heartbeat. I carefully approached it, and tapped the screen. The screen lighting up was like my monster opening its eyes.
There I found several new emails. Then I tried other links and they all still worked, via my WIFI signal.
It has been discussed on this forum in the past, but it really occured to me today that a deactived Droid, is still a very handy tool to have around. It just became a mini wifi only iPad.
We now leave it in our TV room, near the "Easy Chair" as a controller for NetFlix Instant Movies, TV Guide, Etc.
The D1 also makes a very good battery backed-up alarm clock.
In fact you can do everything but text and make a call. With Fring, you might even be able to make a WiFi call.
So as long as your phone has Wifi, buyers remorse will become less of an issue now.
