It's an off-contract droid... to pay anything less than $100 would be a steal. Plus, I can't live without a hardware keyboard, so I couldn't go for any new Verizon phone on-contract. I'd rather save my upgrade anyway.

My Droid 1 a @ 1.1GHz is as fast in Quadrant as the Desire HD anyway, so I'm not too upset lol, just messin

Is there anything I need to specifically look for when buying an Android phone used? I mean are there some that I won't be able to switch to my "active" phone for my Verizon plan and add a data plan?

Thanks so much!
Just make sure it has a clean ESN (which all devices on Swappa are required to have). Other than that, if it is rooted when you receive it, just make sure you call verizon programming (*228) to activate and do NOT walk it into a retail store.

Thanks for that info, hadn't thought of that. I really like the idea of finding a droid off contract, possibly used from ebay or something like you said.

Could you elaborate on ESN, and most importantly how you get it activated to your number without letting them know to put on a data plan? Wouldn't they know what kind of phone it is because you have to give them some info off of it? I have no idea on this one and would love some clarification.

ESN is kind of like a Mac Address... before you can activate the phone, whoever had it before you had to make sure that the phone's ESN is not associated with another plan anymore.
