You are correct with regard to if you are out of contract you can remove the data package and you will be charged on a pay per use for data unless you put a wix block on that line.

However, the assumption here is that you have a cell account that is out of contract and you are bringing either an Android or Iphone to the table to make it work with the HD application.

murphy's suggestion may be better, i will have to test my droids to see if wifi works without the SIM. I just realized that my Droid Incredible (Verizon) doesn’t have a SIM so that rules out the Verizon network I will check the ATT Droid latter.

I think they are all 2 year contracts. iPod touch doesn't work for you?

I am looking to get 3 smartphones (Ooma compatable). I only need a data plan for one. Hoping to gain the advantage of the Ooma app fo 1000 cell minutes.

I enjoyed the previous iteration of the app (before the HD) much better. Now, I am having issues with remote system understanding my DTMF entries; also the voice quality is a bit choppy. It may have to do with my iPhone being very old (3G). Not sure but I will find out when I upgrade my hardware. I have yet to test the voice quality on my friends' iPhone 4s; I plan to do that soon.

New development. I tried the app today. Whether via wifi or 3G, the DTMF issue I was having (having VM system at work recognize my button presses for mailbox and password) is no longer.

I tried the app out using my friends' iPhone 4 and 3Gs. The app works great on these phones. No issues at all. iPhone 3Gs had a little bit of the choppy sound or crackling noise but kind of rare (not nearly as much as with my old iPhone 3G hardware). So, I think my old iPhone 3G just can't handle the processing power the HD app might need to work without some jerky sound issues.

The HD application still sucks on both my Droids, I can honestly say of the 35 applications I have installed it’s the only one that is that has been a disappointment. I had to take it off both my phones today because of the constant crashing….maybe I will try back next year...maybe by then it will be called the HD 3D Mobile App...Whatever as long as it works.
