    Are there any additional fees for the Motorola Droid, other than the 199.99 price, because I heard that there is a additional Data plan fee. If that is true what is the monthly bill for the droid. (If the additional fee is large, my dad won't let me get the phone, even though i'd pay the additional fee) Also, how long would I have to pay this additional fee, and can I get out of it somehow:) Thanks

    Yes there is a data plan required to have the droid. it prices out @ $30.00 per month and honestly there doesnt seem to be away around paying for this because the phone operates on data for basically everything it does. as far as for how long you will have to pay for this its for as long as you have the phone active on a line of service. for $30 a month its worth it hands down with all you get. Also see if verizon can give the account holder any discounts for where they work i know I get a % off and it applies to the data plan also.

    thanks, Droid1610. It is worth it? hmmm, how much money would it be with the data plan for a year, also, I got wifi, so I dont exactly believe I need the data plan. I think it would be nice to have, But I really don't want to deplete my money, I'm only 15, well and like 3/4ths and I don't have a job. And I got 200 dollars right now, so it would be tough for me to say afloat with this phones plan

    Not trying to be a jerk but if you're only 15 the last thing you should be worrying about right now is a cell phone. Go to school and do what you need to do... and tell your friends to put the phone down and pay attention in class.... Just saying.

    Oh yeah, and thanks for being the perfect example of why so many kids these days disgust me.

    Get a job and earn a living and then complain if you want but for now, Mommy and Daddy says what goes..

    I dont text during class, I liked this phone, "kids" if you call 16 year olds that like phones too. they are also people. i'm not trying to go against what they say. If thre is an additional fee I myself will work around it or I will pay for it. thorpe you were a kid too once, so cut some slack

    Also, i've been thinking and $720 for a phone doesn't sound to promising for me. This better be a very very good phone, cause I don't know where I'm going to get this money

    I made my College Kid pay the $199 and the $30/month for his phone. Since he makes $7/Hr I pay the rest. If you want it bad enough you gotta sacrifice.
    Makes you appreciate it more.

    All smart phones are going to have a data plan attached, so wait till you can afford one. Until then, just grab a normal cell phone with messaging ect.

    So you're paying for the phone and your dad is paying for the calling plan except for the $30 a month data plan? I understand that for 2 years the data plan comes up to $720 but why do you need that all at once? Sure $30 a month is a bit of money for a 15 year old, but there are ways to earn the money every month. Mowing lawns, shoveling snow, getting a paper route... So no it's not impossible. I wish stuff like this was available when I was 15! I wish you luck!

    Oh and not to make things sound worse, but is your Dad going to pay for insurance on the phone? I forget what it is per month, but it would be a very good idea to get insurance on the phone just in case something happens.
