...have the old SIM still or is it in use in another handset?? If you have a deactivated SIM it might work via a wifi connection but can't make/receive calls or connect to the cellular data network.
I am actually looking for an wifi, mp3/media player without the ipod price. It seems like refurbished cell phones would fit the bill. However I know that with my old AT&T phone I cannot get past the first screen without a SIM card. Are all cell phones like this or are their some whose features can be used with no minutes or plans or contracts? I think that I would prefer the Android OS. Thanks for your help.
