    Waitin on my Droid

    Just bought a Droid off eBay. Says it was unlocked, then he e-mails me n says he doesnt know. Oh well, AT&T is making me mad anyway. I am in the army and currently in kuwait on deployment. Would I be able to use the WiFi capabilities without a working SIM card in the droid? Once I get back to the states, hopefully there will be a unlock out. I am still currently an iPhone 3GS owner, jailbroken, unlocked. I like it, but the droid seems like a much better phone. (my iphone keeps crashing n I hafto reset a bunch) I've always been one to mess with my electronics, customfirmware PSP's, jailbreaking, unlocking, everything I can get my hands on. I'm very excited to get my new droid n make everything work with it. I'll probably switch to Verizon as soon as I get back home...maybe...i got a nice deal with AT&T. hopefully an unlock will be out by then.

    First, thank you for your service to our Country. Purchasing a Droid on ebay can be tricky, I hope that works for you. I hope you understand that Droid only works on CDMA and unless Kuwait has that type of network it won't work for you as far as receiving and making calls. Let us know how it works out.

    The Droid doesn't have a SIM card.... so there's no unlock necessary. It only works on Verizon.

    quickly figured that out. gonna be using it for WiFi until i get back to the states then switch to Verizon. I added up my bill n it would be $104 a month tho. compared to my $60 already w/ AT&T. for the same features.

    Droid is a CDMA based phone. I'd have a nice discussion with that guy

    he's no longer e-mailing me back. oh well, just as long as I get the phone. ill use it for WiFi while im in kuwait, then go with verizon when i get back. im sure they have a military discount. if not, ill tell em AT&T does (which they do) and ill get one from them. telling them about competitors discounts they dont have always seems to work.
