So I got hold a Droid X that has not been activated but I do not have a service plan for it. Is there anything I can do with it to access GPS or games and such without activating it? When I boot it up it ask for activation. Can I ROM it?

In order to download anything directly on the phone, like using rom manager or boot strapped or even to use the market. You have to have a data plan.

Well if anybody has a BIG Hack for it LMK. I can't believe that this cool little device is only good for draining $$. Maybe a self installing ROM off the SD Card :). Allowing WIFI.

Should be able to use it for anything except calling and texting by using the wifi. To get the green droid off the front just skip the activation. I remember reading somewhere that if you tap each corner of the screen that it will bypass the activation also. Good luck.

Ya slide your finger from the upper left corner around in a clockwise motion touching each corner of the touchscreen.

I was going to say the same, I just got my Droid X and my Droid still was getting email and app updates and I could browse the web using WiFi. Anything that works through cellular data only (calls/text/mms) won't work but if it works on Wifi then you will be good

Can use google voice for calling and texts, but again, only on wifi.

You can look at my other post and figure out where I "found" it. It's not in the best of shape and was out in the weather two days so I have no idea on how long it will last.
