I have a question regarding WiFi on cell phones that work with standard carriers like Sprint , Verizon etc
If I buy one of these phones, can I otherwise use the phone without connecting to the carrier ?
That is . without activation, would my PDA, camera etc on the phone work for example (if it has those functions) ?
(By activation , I of course mean buying service from carrier and "activating the phone for service"........I don't mean just turning the power switch on the phone)
Would the WiFi still work on the cell phone, (if I just power it up) ?
When you talk of WiFi on a cell phone, is it full fledged WiFi as you would receive on a laptop or is it a condensed version ?
So I would not have to buy the service from the carrier anymore to access the web ( of course, to the extent that I can access WiFi services ) ?
