    yea thats gonna be pretttttty difficult seeing as phones are set with certain software that allows them to work on their specified network. I doubt youll be able to get data working if its another network - verizons pretty good about locking this part of the phone

    well how is it that the droid eris can do it and not the moto droid? is it verizon that doesnt allow it or the phone manufacturer?

    Droid doesn't have a SIM card. (Does the Eris? I'm not even sure)

    what other network is the eris on? verizon is the one who blocks it - they bought specific rights to the droid for the droid for so long so they are the only carrier who motorola sells it to

    i dont know that much about the eris but htc has a lot of gsm and cdma phones so they might have sold ownership to multiple carriers

    Verizon owns Alltel that's why. (or merged... whatever :))
