Thread: Droid X2 with Data-only plan????

    Droid X2 with Data-only plan????

    So, I have been checking out the Droid X2 and it looks quite nice. I see on Verizon's site that the phone requires a data plan and there is unlimited data for $30 a month. But when I add this to the cart and select the plan it only lets me choose a talk or a talk + text plan. The problem is I don't want minutes or texts. $40 a month is a waste of money no matter what phone I get because I barely ever talk or text. I want only data and so if I want to talk to somebody I would use Skype. So is there a way, maybe at the Verizon store, that I can get this with only the data plan? Thanks.

    You could probably spend the same account monthly on an air card and do practically the same thing...I don't think you can activate a phone with data without some kind of talk and/or text. Because it would have a phone number assigned to the contract. then again I could be wrong.

    No doubt. You can't have a phone with a talk plan....it is a phone afterall. If you only intend to use data a tablet is probably the way to go. In addition, the unlimited data is $30/month WHEN ADDED TO A TALK PLAN, it'll say that somewhere on the page.

    I'm hearing impaired myself and Verizon was a little stubborn about giving me the data only plan and added the phone feature to my plan in which I never use and minutes are being wasted..

    I recently had a similar experience with VZW with a different device- I wanted to get a device for development and testing but I just wanted 3G and wireless! They freaked out and I even had to get a regional manager involved in order to make this happen. In addition, since I wasn't signing a contract, it cost an unreasonable amount. Quite a debacle and the end result was that I was required to purchase one month of service, with no contract, but was required to call and cancel the service after the 15th day which was a PITA in itself.

    Bottom line is it's more work than it's worth IMHO. I would consider having a friend get it on their plan, buy the device from the friend, then have them replace it. Even at that rate, just getting it activated with data only might be a magic trick in itself.

    Good luck! I Hope they give you what you're looking for.

    Sprint has a very reasonable data only plan. And the evo 3d is coming out soon.

    Yep! Sprint is very deaf friendly.. If only they supported the DX, I might switch over.. But not anytime soon.
