Question about using a non-activated droid
I have a question for the community that I have not been able to find an answer to. While I assume the answer to my question to be yes, I would like to know for certain.
If I were to obtain another droid phone, model unimportant, would the phone (minus 3g and phone functions) work just fine on a wifi network?
That is, could I use it as a standalone device that can browse the web, consume media, and whatever else I'd like without having a service plan behind it as long I don't care to be able to make calls on it?

I'd assume the contrary. Without a telephone number, my assumption would be that you's connec to nothing and do nothing.
You can't "browse the web, consume media" without a connection to somewhere, and I never heard of being able to do so without paying a toll.
It should work just fine on the wifi because it is using the wifi network not the cell carrier. The Verizon kiosk that is located within my store has an Incredible on display that is not activated, but it connected to the wifi no problem.
Whenever you flash a new rom, it allows you to choose either wifi only or data plan/wi-fi

Thanks for the responses. I thought that it should work without contract or activation. Thanks everyone.
On occasion I still use my old Droid1 WiFi only for everything I use my DInc for but to make calls, kind of like an iPod Touch. Would not be surprised if you had a voip account and SIP, maybe even a Google voice account, you may be able to make calls.
