    I was wondering if anyone had tried the data only plan for the droid. It is $50/month (total cost of plan before taxes etc). I was thinking of trying it and using VOIP for calling. Let me know how VOIP calls are with the droid if you don't mind.

    Anyone use a VOIP app yet? What kind of call quality do you get with any VOIP service?

    See if you can find a VoIP application first. Many of them have been kicked out by the cell providers and made unavailable on their networks.

    Take it back looks like skype light beta does allow for VoIP calls.

    No luck with the VOIP through Skype, chat only. I was trying to set it up for calling home from overseas via wifi, but calling is not available...not even the phone feature. Heck, my iPod touch would do that!

    I do not have my Driod yet but I plan to try out VoIP once I do.

    FYI, the $50 data-only plan doesn't seem to be an option. The reason I'm still Droid-less is because I ordered it online with the $50/mo plan. VZW held up my order. I talked to them this morning and they told me the data-only plan isn't offered with the Droid. Now I've got the $40 + $30 plan.
