Hello and help!
This looks to be a great forum. I was looking for ways to modify my Verizon Fascinate. I just got the new RAZR MAXX and want to turn the Fascinate into a small tablet for my children. WiFi only. What I want is absolutely no phone functionality at all. I don't even want to see it. What is the best ROM for me to flash?
Does ICS do this?
I did read some of the stickies and did some searches but can't seem to find info on this.
Also I wiped the phone and now I have the activate screen come on whenever I re-power it. I have to do the code each time so hoping to get rid of this also.

Re: Hello and help!
Here is a introductory guide to rooting your phone. After you root the phone, then you can flash a custom ROM of your choice:

More ROMs are available in the Samsung Galaxy S -> Verizon Fascinate forums. Pretty much any ROM would work, just make sure you choose one that is stable, NOT a work in progress (WIP)

I believe the option to dial 911 is always going to be there (for safety reasons) as long as the phone is in a service area. I think a simpler option would be to use a launcher (nova launcher has this feature) which allows you to hide apps you don't want access to. This way, you can put the phone in airplane mode (which would really prevent any cell services from being used) and hide the settings, phone, messaging or any other apps you choose. I believe removing or freezing any of the core service apps like phone.apk would just cause a force close loop as they're meant to be running all the time.
