Is it possible to use my Incredible as a Wifi only device and disable the phone altogether? The reason I ask is I just received a brand new replacement from Best Buy that I have yet to activate because I got used to not paying for the DATA plan these past two months while my phone was out for repairs. I am currently using my old VENUS phone through Verizon which does not require any DATA plan. I don't feel like I should have to pay for internet twice from both Comcast & Verizon. I already have a working cell phone. I just want to use my incredible sort of like a WiFi Android Tablet at home for games and searches and such. Then use my VENUS to make calls. Is this possible?
And if so, Will I still be able to buy and use apps from the Android market through my gmail account? Or, will I have to pay for one month of service with it activated in order to load all my old apps I bought already and then deactivate the phone from Verizon afterwords? Is the Google gmail account that associated to my Android apps also associated with Verizon? I'm kinda stuck here. I'd be willing to sell this BNIB if I can't do this, but I don't want to activate it and then find out I won't be able to buy and download any more new apps after I deactivate the phone through Verizon, because the phone would not be worth as much once I open it and activate it.
