Switching from Verizon (Droid X Android 2.3.4) to PP or StraightTalk
Switching to either Page Plus (The 55) or StraightTalk from Verizon. Advantage w/ PP is that I can keep my phone (Droid X Android 2.3.4 phone). Disadvantage is that it costs $10 more per month and I won't have any support on phone (e.g., updates, upgrades, etc.) I stream music and have phone set up so I can get gmail and work email on phone. I don't watch videos, movies, play games, etc. Have some, hopefully, simple questions:
1) PP or StraightTalk???? As I will be on Verizon's 2G and 3G network, quality, coverage should be the same, correct?
2) I know I can just call PP and have them port number and activate/setup my phone to work. I do not believe they will root my Droid. If that is the case, should I root my Droid if I am going to switch to PP? What are advantages/disadvantages? Is it worth the hassle?
2) Can I still send and receive email from gmail and my work email (Office 365 Enterprise) using Droid X on PP?
3) How do I update my operating system on PP? Given how I use the phone (listed above), do I have to worry about doing upgrades?
TIA for any and all suggestions!
