    I dont know what to search for so I am sorry if this question has been asked before. My Incredible is rooted running Skyraider ROM and the securrity is off. Can i transfer this phone to a person without a VZ wireless data package and them be able to use the wifi on the phone? THe person has VZ wireless voice and only nneds the wifi capability while traveling and will have wifi at the hotels they are staying at.

    Thanks in advance!

    So the person you are wanting to transfer the phone to wants to activate the phone with out a data plan correct? If so they can not use the phone without a data plan, as Verizon requires all smartphone users to have a data plan. If he/she is not wanting to activate the phone on a mobile network the phone can still be used as a WiFi device.

    Thanks! They basically want to use it as a small laptop. They don't even need the voice function as they have Skype. I wasn't sure if it mattered if it was rooted or not. Does it? I may just help them get a used Droid and use it.
