    Here's my poor pitiful story. I've hit some rough patches lately and ended losing everything to a house fire. The only thing I have left is my Samsung Stratosphere. Housing is more important than paying a cell phone bill but the WiFi at least works without the service. However, I have noticed that I am unable to surf the web, but I can post to Facebook and watch Youtube videos. What gives? I thought WiFi would allow me to still go online.

    Another problem that I am concerned with is that if I do not have cell phone service can I reset my phone or will it expect me to have service to continue activation? Any advice email me at xtreme_nation@yahoo.com because I cannot use the site app either and had to borrow a friends laptop to post this inquiry. Thanks to anyone that can help me out.

    Before I sold my Inc I did a factory reset and was not prompted for activation.

    Sorry to hear what happened. Hope things turn around for you quickly.

    I hope to get more feedback. I'm just afraid that if I reset it I will not have the phone since its all I have.
