    I saw at least one post somewhere about buying the D2G as a prepaid phone to save some $$. I went to a couple stores and they all wanted the full price for the phone. For anyone that has purchased this phone as a prepaid phone, any advice? Is there some sales code on the bill the rest of us could use as reference or something??

    Verizon will not subsidize premium phone without a 2yr agreement. Full retail is the only way.

    So did I and I hope that its worth it but its capabilities and what I've read it seems it will be. I still can't believe this guy was able to get a prepaid deal on a smartphone.

    With the full retail price paid..where you able to use it on any carrier? Or did you have to request an unlock code?

    I got mine on prepaid. (A friend of mine in the States picked up in store activated on prepaid). I've got the unlock code already (purchased online) and are now awaiting to receive the phone (it was couriered to me). There is already a report phone works on the GSM/HSPA Rogers network in Canada. I will also test TELUS, BELL and FIDO. Will report back as soon as I receive the phone.

    Any chance you can post up an invoice minus any personal info so we can see what magic was done?

    It does work on Telus. I posted that in another thread in this Forum.

    I'll post invoice when I get it. Right now I don't have it - it should arrive somewhere in upcoming week along with the phone. (I had a friend of mine buy it for me in the States).

    So you don't need anything else to buy the prepaid? Just go in the store and ask for prepaid? A friend of mine tried it to get the retail one in Miami and they said it was $699. :S

    Not true. ALL of our devices can be put on prepaid...I don't even want to know what THAT would cost though!! Why would one want such a great device on prepaid though??

    Android on VZW prepay

    One can order an Android handset online at VZW on prepaid. Droid X is ~$400 on prepaid with $40 voice only and $30 unlimited data as prepaid plans (variable voice plans available, unlimited data required). $35 activation fee required, also.

    My question: If bought this way, can the handset be taken to a byod MVNO like PagePlus Cellular. PPC allows byod but VZW prepaid phones are not allowed. Does VZW compromise the Android handset on prepaid in some way, block it for use on an MVNO by ESN, or actually allow transfer and use of the handset on the MVNO?

    I'm guessing the second, else one gets the handset for $150 off MSRP.
