    Hi, I was thinking about getting the prepaid samsung galaxy s3 and was wondering if there is a way to bypass activation because I just want to get an android phone as an ipod touch alternative, not a phone.

    Do I need to get one with a specific carrier to bypass or are there other powerful android phones that I could bypass activation?

    Hello!

    Most phones will work without a Sim Card. You simply connect a Gmail account to use the play store, and you have your device set. Remember, you wont have access to any networks without a working Sim Card.

    Yes! And there are also WiFi calling apps if that is needed in the future. Messaging shouldn't be a problem. There are tons out there today. Let me know if you have any more questions!
