Power on without SIM Card
I just bought a RAZR from Costco as a gift for my wife and I won't be giving it to her until x-mas so it is not activated yet. They gave me a SIM card and told me to call Verizon when I am ready to set it up and insert the card at that time.
I wanted to see what the MAC address is so I can set it up on my home network ahead of time so I tried to start the phone to look it up. It would not power on when I hold the power button down, no sign of life at all. I plugged in a micro USB charger from my Thunderbolt to see if it needed charging.....again no sign of life.
Does the SIM card need to be inserted to just turn on the phone?
