1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Yes you can bypass the screen by tapping on the four corners of the display. Starting with the top left. Don't go below the green line where the words Droid Razr are. Then once you've done that. Press home button to bypass everything else.

    I know VZW has some some[i/] coverage in Alaska. Probably just in the bigger cities however.

    Information above is accurate except that the phone can not be activated "manually" as older phones could by dialing *228 and pressing send followed by 1 at the first prompt. By doing the bypass of the activation screen (press each corner successively), it will allow you to get to the phone's main home page and use the pre-installed apps, and will also allow you to use the phone on a WIFI network for data, but the phone will not have ANY cellular OR data service, except for the Federally required 911 service.

    These phones which are 4G, require a MicroSIM card, which should have been shipped with your phone if you purchased it from Verizon over the web or phone. If you bought the phone from a third-party dealer, you will need to contact Verizon at 1-800-922-0204 and inform them that you need a MicroSIM card for your phone, assuming you already have a Data Plan with Verizon. If not, then you will need to add a data plan for your phone. Either way, they can send a SIM card to you in the mail.

    Another possible alternative is to have someone you know in the lower 48 visit a Verizon Phone Center Store and secure an activated MicroSIM for you. They will have to let the representative speak to you on the phone before issuing the card. Then your friend can send it to you via USPS.

    Good luck! ;)
