    I have no experience with this specific device, BUT, as a general rule, you should be fine. The Best Buy ad may be offering a rebate of some sort, if you activate in store, but other than that, they can't force you to activate anything, and you should be able to use it as a Wi-Fi device just fine.

    I question why you'd buy this phone just for that though. I'd recommend possibly finding a device cheaper from eBay, just to give yourself more of a bang for your buck.
    I have a best buy gift card. Dont want a tablet. And the only other thing out there is the samsung galaxy player , which I would prefer the phone over. We are thinking about getting rid of the House phone and getting a prepaid for emergency.

    Scroll down to the bottom, scroll down again to go back to top, scroll up, scroll down. You should see a message at the bottom of the screen that power button has been enabled.

    Question (not about the hardware itself):

    The $25 plan has been brought back to life (possibly by accident). When you look at the plan screen in your account, there may also be a "don't see the plan you are looking for?" link at the bottom. If you click on the link, you can choose the $25 plan again.

    I've been able to grab this with my Op V (today 9/2/12). Others have said it is there for Triumphs and Elites.

    It is not there for the Evo V.

    Does it show up for you as a One V user?

    According to the notice in May, it shouldn't

    ...but it should not be there at all now for anyone who wasn't grandfathered (and I was not).

    Just curious.

    Where exactly is this option? When I go to activate my phone should I do it online?

    I think the elite was the last device that you could use with the 25$ plan. I'm on the the 35.

    It's on the official HTC list to get jb. Only worry I have, is that virgin won't allow it. They have a bad track record with updates. I'm almost certain that the gsm HTC One V will get jb.

    Good point...I'll keep it rooted with a rom...because of virgin mobiles track record with updates...besides paranoid android is awesome...

    Edit: I think the only advantage of the stock rom is HTCs camera ...but I have a Nikon D3100....so....

    If there was an ota update I'd unroot and do it. HTC sense 4 or maybe 5 with jb would be really nice. The camera options and htc options are nice too

    Peter Alfonso just the other day open sourced the Bugless Beast Jelly Bean code and mentioned that he is willing to help devs port that over to any other device.
