    I have an old Motorola droid 2 that has been deactivated from verizon service. It works fine, but anytime I try to go online or do anything except play music and the simple downloaded games I have I get..."A network error has occured. Retry, or cancel and return to the previous screen." How can I use my droid without the phone service? As I stated, home page comes up, music and camera all work no issues. It just won't connect to internet, market or any other apps which require an internet connection. thank you

    I have a deactivated Droid X and it does everything except voice or transfer data through a tower.

    To transfer data I have Wi-Fi enabled on my Droid X and it communicates to the Internet through the wireless router in my office.

    To establish the connection I had to configure the Wi-Fi options on my Droid X to provide the appropriate password when establishing the Wi-Fi connection to my wireless router.

    I have an optimus v, that I use wifi only every once in awhile.
    I had a droid 2 for 3 days, I used it on wifi all day. Never had a problem with it.
