    Droid X w/ No Service any use?

    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.

    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
