I'm interested to know if it's possible when buying an HTC Incredible (or any applicable phone really) phone unopened from say eBay or wherever, can that device be activated and use only the WiFi signal without having to attain a phone number or contact Verizon? I'm interested (for now) in using the device simple as a WiFi device until I decide to get the 3G internet plan and would like to know if it's possible. What exactly happens when you turn on the phone when you first get it out of the box? Is contact with Verizon required even if I want to use it as a WiFi only device? Thanks!
