Just picked one up BF, don't want to activate, just use it for android wifi. Can the activation screen be bypassed? Don't want to unbox if not, just return. thanks!

I just bought the same phone and am looking for the same solution. You can skip the activation screen when you turn it on, but you have to bypass it each time you turn it on. I'm still looking for a permanent fix. I'm hoping someone knows an easy way without rooting the phone or building my own ROM.

that's good ... wanna try something? There's apparently a quasi-SIM that identifies it as LTE, just underneath where a memory sim would go. want to try pulling it out to see what happens? I've heard building your own ROM for this model is a no-go so far ... bootloader is locked down. I'd be willing to root if there was a bypass solution ...
