    Data over Wifi?

      Does the DoublePlay allow you to use the phones features over wifi instead of using the data plan? When I am at home, I dont want to dig into the data plan at all, instead I would like to use my home network which has wifi. I just ordered the phone, and mistakenly chose the DoublePlay. Now i need to know if i have to return it for the phone I originally wanted, that lists Wifi Data on its features. Thank you.

          Ya, your ok mobilefan. The double play runs Android so you will have the option to use only your home WiFi instead of your data plan. And remember you have a 15 day buyers remorse period to switch your phone/end service penalty free if the phone doesn't work out for you. Enjoy your new phone.

            Thank you very much. I was really worried, because I cant afford the unlimited plan. I would rather give the DoublePlay a go since its the only phone of its kind, and none of my friends have it. Ill try it out. Again, thanks for the info and giving me a lot of relief over my order.

              That's a 14 day return period, for a phone bought from a store. Sorry to seem picky, but that one day could mean a lot of frustration for someone denied the opportunity to return their device.

                I ordered from the website. Does that mean I do not have the 14 day return period? That seems like an odd policy. If i can use my wifi network instead of the data plan, then it will be alright. that was the only deal breaker for me, however if I find out too late that it doesnt, i will indeed be upset.

                  You actually get 20 days for online phone purchases,  but don't leave it to the last moment to arrange the return. I just saw a post from someone who called to find out about returning their device on the 20th day and ended up being denied a cancellation because the device wasn't returned that day.

                    Was just able to confirm this with a rep as well. I am breathing a sigh of rellief. It wont take the 20 days for me to find out if I like it or not, so that makes me feel much better. Thank you.
