    Can a rooted droid place & receive voip calls without a voice plan?

    I am considering purchasing a used droid x. I really don't know the pros or cons of rooting, but it may allow me to access internet data with a hotspot device, or maybe, as its own hotspot without a voice plan, and with a data plan with Verizon, or Metro PCS, if they will allow me to connect to their service from the Seattle neighborhood.

    If I can use the droid x as a hotspot and have only a data plan, do you know anything about placing and receiving VOIP calls on it, be it with google voice, skype, or ??? If the phone app is activicated will it always ring when a call comes in, just like my landline?

    Will I be able to tether it wirelessly to more then one PC?

    Will it be able to multi-task (ie. place or receive a call while doing a search)?

    Thanks for your time. If you can't answer these questions, maybe, you can direct me to a place that can answer them.

    I am not aware that you could get 3G service without a voice plan. Unlike how home based internet works. Like I don't have cable, or even basic cable, but I have the internet netflix/hulu.

    There are ways of getting a DX to work on PCS and Cricket, but I'm unsure how those places work with data and if you need voice.

    No it can't, the most it can do is connect to wifi
