I would like to know if I buy an unlocked phone (a Droid for example) how do I get it on the Verizon network and will I be able to get unlimited Web (3g internet)? Thanks

    I am in NC, I want to get a smart phone (upgrade from an LG Dare) but do NOT want to pay for the data plan. If I can get an unlocked droid and add it to the Verizon plan i would like to .
    I believe the LG Dare does not have a SIM card, so I am not sure how to do this.
    Thanks

    Thank you! So there is no way to get internet service without paying for the data plan, regardless if the phone is unlocked or not....

If you buy an Android unlock phone, you can just about connect it to any 3G/HSPA network you subscribe to.
You will need to pay for your 'expensive' unlimited Web access according to the Data plan you select!
You can also access a free Wifi Hotspot via your Android phone (make sure it has good Wifi support for 802.11b/g/n)
Hope it answers your question.

    Some plan will include a reasonnable amount of Data included but it will not be unlimited unless you pay a very high premium either on a plan or pre-paid.
    Some mobile service provider are starting to give you 'unlimited' free internet access to certain site such as Facebook either on a Plan or Pre-Paid.
    If you are prepare to pay a high monthly amount each month (for more Data) for say 12 to 24 months, as stated by someone else, they will 'give' you a Android or IPhone.
    There is a physical Mobile network limitation to the amount of data you send or received in any one area due to Bandwidth limitationand number of users in any mobile tower zone.

Verizon will just about give you a Droid if you sign up ... they have a variety of plans you can participate in ... I am very reluctant to tell you anything about the plans because I have no idea where you are. Since you mention Verizon, I presume there is Verizin service in your area. I suggest you give them a call this morning.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

    Yes, my friend, you will have to purchase some kind of plan. Believe it or not ... Verizon sells these 'products' as a business and they expect to make money ... you will have to purchase the service is you want to use it.

Unlock Eris from Verizon so that I can use it with Straight Talk Unlimited


You cannot do this. Straight Talk only allows phones with specific MEIDs on their network. You could use your Eris with PagePlus, another prepaid provider that uses the Verizon network. They have a 1200 minute/2000 text/100MB plan for $29.95/month.

Need to unlock motorola droid to work with my att acc i know it can be done


If this is a phone that is not branded by your service provider (example: it's a verizon phone and your trying to use it with att) you first need to make sure that it is compatible w/ att network. The phone needs to be able to take a sim card. Second, you would need to get an unlock code from the provider that the phone originally came from. Once you have that they will inform you how to unlock the phone and you will be able to use it on the other network. Be aware that since the phone is actually made for the other network that it may not work properly. This is because the phone is designed to work on a different network and will have different settings, therefore it is not guranteed that it will work to it's full capabilities, especially the internet.
