    I need to cut down on expenses and have decided to get rid of the data plan on my Verizon account and go back to my old non-Smart-phone. (Yes, yes, I know, it will be painful!) I know VZ will force me to have a data plan as long as I have a smart-phone.

    My question is: Can I still use the DINC w/ Wifi to do just about everything except make phone calls?

    Thanks!

    Short answer: Yes. I use my original Droid like that.

    Link? As long as it doesn't require voice service I don't see why not.

    Thanks for the replies! I just wanted to confirm that even over wi-fi, there won't be some surprise msg to the effect of "Sorry, your phone is not activated. Please contact Verizon customer service to do anything remotely useful!"

    I suppose you can still make calls over WiFi via Google Voice, Skype, etc. So there is still some use for it
