    Yes. If you need to bypass activation at startup, swipe the four corners of the Android. Google "bypass android activation" for images of how to do this if you don't understand what I mean.

    Tip: put the phone in airplane mode and get crazy battery life. Wifi still works in airplane mode.

    What he said.

    As long as you're connecting to an infrastructure and not and Ad-Hoc network you should be fine. :)
