    I was wondering if Verizon still charges you for data usage if you use your home wi-fi network or any other type of wi-fi. Does sending and receiving pictures and videos also count as a data usage charge?

    How in the world could Verizon charge you for using your own home network or any other wifi?

    No, they only charge you for using their data. But to just use wifi and not use Verizons data as well you'd be limiting the use of your phone. For one thing, the phone wouldn't be able to make calls.

    And you can't get a Droid from Verizon without a data plan.

    lol wifi is free for any device.

    And for future reference, if you get a new phone and deactivate your droid, the wifi will still work. Everything not needing data will work (browser will work with wifi though)

    Connecting your phone to a pre-existing WiFi network = free.

    Using your phone to create a WiFi network = not free.

    I hope this answers your question. :D

    Only if you're on a limited data plan and exceed your limit. Keep in mind that MMS messages count as text messages (not data).

    None of your Verizon data will be used. Be sure to turn on Airplane Mode then use WiFi to make sure none of your Verizon data gets used.
