    Can my old droid 2 that is not in use ( I have droid X activated) be used as a music storage playback device?
    I had issues with the phone and went to the droid X for my phone usage. I have since received a refurbished phone but I Don't want to use it as my phone. I have the activate phone screen showing up. Is there a way to bypass?
    Thanks LTX

    What is the activate screen? the google sign in is not an actiate thing, just sign in your account and your good to go. i think you have to dial number to switch back to your d2. just use it on wifi. its just a small tablet ;)

    Yeah the activate screen will showup everytime you restart the phone, happens on my D1. Just hit the back button and it's gone. I use mine as a browser and music player mostly now.

    The screen has the wigit and states welcome to droid2.then once you touch the screen it only gives you promps to activate phone. I had to do a factory reset so all my original info was wiped. How can I get pass this without activating my phone?

    I have a D1 that I use as a storage device for photos, I just bluetooth file transfer from my Bionic to get the photos of my card, I also use it on WiFi for websurfing and email sometimes.
