    OK so I am so new to the forum you can just smell the "newbie" scent all over me. Now that we have that out of the way. I have an original droid that is mint condition. My question is rather simple but not simple enough for me to figure out. I live in the chicago land area, and want to get my droid on a pay as you go service like straight talk. First off, is it even possible? Second, what other options do I have? Yep I opened the door for all the newbie remarks, but I have to start somewhere :)

    Thanks in advance

    First welcome. your phone can be used on straight talk but not easily or cheap .its a non sim phone which makes it more difficult . i cannot find link to how to do it .. i will continue to look . but for reference look to spend 100 to 200 dollars . i know it involves buying one of there CDMA phones with data

    If you want to put a Verizon phone on PayGo, your best bet is Page Plus. They are one of the few companies that let you bring your own phone and they use the Verizon network. I have a Droid 1 phone on them now. The plan I use is called "The 12" which for a whole $12 a month gives me 250 minutes, 250 SMS and 10MB of data. Using Wifi at home and work (same place) means I really don't need don't need much data when I am elsewhere.

    Here is a grid that shows prices of most of the companies so you can compare prices:

    open...

    I guess I am open to other ideas, I just know that I own this droid free and clear. I figured I'd have to buy something.

    Owning a phone free and clear doesn't mean beans unless the company lets you bring your own phone. Fewer and fewer are allowing that. They don't want the support headaches.

    I'm confused. Why would someone be willing to spend hundreds to use a $50 phone on a foreign system? Fifty dollars is what I paid for my phone when I bought it off of Craig's list. Doesn't make much sense.

    You have to determine which carrier will give you the best signal where you are. The best phone in the world means beans if it can't connect to anything.

    The best way to do that is to throw a party and when your friends bring their phones, ask them how their signal is at your house. Have them make a call or two.

    For me, the three majors really suck and T-mobile can't get a signal even outside. My neighbors won't allow any towers and since this is a "nicer" neighborhood, they have the political pull to get their way.

    So, i had to buy a Wilson repeater.
