Can I take an active SIM from another phone and use it in my new Droid X?
First post, hoping for your insight.
Long story short, I'm part of my father-in-law's family plan with AT&T. I pay $20 per month for unlimited calls and texts ($20 is how much it cost to add my line to his plan). However, my phone is a rinky-dink F160 (it was free with the new line).
Now, I just bought a no-contract Droid X to replace my recently broken iPhone, which I was only using for Wi-Fi and music storage. This morning, I had an idea... would it be possible to take the SIM card out of my F160 and put it into my new Droid X?
My goal is to make calls and texts from the Droid X so that I don't have to carry around two phones. I'm totally fine with rooting or any other procedure I would need to perform to make this work (I hope it's kosher to ask about that sort of thing on this forum). What do you guys say?
Understood. Thank you so much. Here's a follow-up question.
If I were to get a barebones plan from Verizon (just texts and calls), could I use my Droid X without having to sign up for an expensive data plan? I'd just like to use Wi-Fi and store my music on the same phone I call/text with.
You can sign up with a carrier like Page Plus Cellular. I am using a Droid X
with their TnT 1200 plan. You get 1200 minutes, 3000 texts, and 100mb of date per
month for $29.95. NO taxes at all.............just $29.95.
I am around wifi 99.9% of the time so data usage is not a problem. I use Droidwall
app to keep data usage to a minimum.
No contracts and best thing is you get to use the VZW network

Again, thank you guys so much for weighing in on my questions. I checked out Page Plus, and I'm pretty impressed. The TnT 1200 plan looks perfect for me. I'm assuming you can sign up for that plan with any phone? What about an unlocked iPhone (my wife's)?
Okay, I have my Droid and it's up and running with Liberty. Now for Page Plus. I did some research, but I didn't find much about activating the phone with PP. If you remember, my phone doesn't have a contract, so should I enter my dumb phone's number in the blank provided? Also, when I try to activate the Droid X on the PP website, I'm asked to select my phone model--Droid X isn't listed.
