    Yes it depends on the prepaid card. Some just DON'T allow it. Nothing you can do about it. When some of us got the droid we got it from a VZW store, and instead of an instant rebate we got it in the form of a 100$ prepaid card. That's what he was talking about.

    Also the motorola app store was up for awhile, then it went back down, so i think they are testing it. I believe it should be out very soon.

    Which is why I take my rebate to a customer service rep and have them credit my account....

    The gift cards by NetSpend are usually called "AllAcess Gift cards" but they are by the same company and it will say on the back of the card...There are also some NetSpend cards that have you sign up and reload (any amount you want) and those say NetSpend on them (those I stay away from because I don't want to give away any information.)

    The real gift cards (not reloadable) come in the form usually of 25, 50, and 100.

    But yes the All Access NetSpend cards are world-wide. I use them for international purchases to sports websites...because they work outside the country and do not block any questionable content such as gambling related.


    Edit: They are Visa giftcards just for the record (I have yet to find any at a store like CVS). If you have trouble finding them checkout Netspend.com. I have found them at convenient stores like White Hen, Cumberland Farms or even Mobil Gas stations...and if you do search the website and give your zip code look for the stores that say "Gift cards". The gift cards are not reloadable so when you go -- check it out...the ones that you reload are ones you have to sign up for.

    Quit whining, return or sell the damn Droid and go get re-assimilated into the iPhone cult. Then bash away on the Droid.

    THEY'RE DIFFERENT. The phones are likely equal in capability. Verizon's network blows ATT's away. Apps? Sure, the Android market is way behind the iphone, but since it's open source... and Big Brother Apple won't be ruling with their iron fist, I wager the Android Market will soon make the Apple market look rather anemic.

    But go, enjoy. Apple and ATT will probably welcome you back with open arms.

    (By the way, just how does the inability - set by either your credit card company, android market or someone else, translate to a device failing??)

    There's a fail alright but it's not with the Droid or Google. "ONCE again. FML." :icon_rolleyes:

    So there's no customer service number on the card? Your caps lock is broken, btw.

    Really? weren't you just whining about running to the admins to tell on people being rude?

    we really don't need children like you on this board. clean it up, or find somewhere else to show your ignorance.
