    I don't get it. Aren't us Droid owners required to have the $30 data package anyways? Or are they talking about USB/mifi devices added to your account?

    I know Virgin Mobile today announced a $40/month unlimited data plan with their USB/Mifi devices that use the Sprint network (3G, not 4G). No contract needed, but you need to buy the data card or mifi device.

    From what I've read, customers will have to pay the full cost of the phone (or something close to it, as some pictures have some DROID phones @ 299.99, which is lower than most of the MSRPs for the DROID line). While I am happy that they have prepaid android phones and service now, I can't break my contract lol.

    Yes, I did have to pay almost full price. The salesman gave me something of a discount. Phone, car charger, bluetooth earpiece, case and clip for just slightly under $700 with first month included. I went for it because I got tired of getting ripped off every month because of the contract. I'm prepaid for life. I envy those that don't have contract problem because I always had billing problems. :(

    But I'm happy now with my Droid 2. :)

    My contract with ATT ran out a few months ago and since then I have been prepay. I have good credit but I liked the freedom with prepay. At first I stayed with att prepay. I heard of s service called pageplus so I switched to them. They resell verizon service. I paid 44.95 a month for unlimited talk and txt with 20 megs of data. If I used more data then I had to pay like 60 cents a meg. Good thing there was wifi every where around but there were many times that there was no wifi and I was out of data. I started to look around for prepaid providers that worked on cdma. I came to love android and like verizon service. No provider around that had decent data packages and then verizon announced their prepay service. I went to the verizon store today and switched to their prepay service. I got unlimited talk, txt and data for$ 124.99. Much more than what I was paying before but to me it is worth it for the data, my phone is covered with verizon and if I ever have to call customer care the wait will not be half hour.

    Verizon does offere discount for phones. The droid2 was 349 and droid x is 399.
