    Hi,

    I got a spare Pre3 in case my daily driver doesnt do it anymore.

    Now, i wanted to prepare it but it wants a SIM card first and doesnt let me do anything else.

    Is there a way to use a Pre3 without having a SIM card inserted?

    Best Jörg

    yes, you have to use impostah. There are guides to doing this on the forums if you search for it.

    You can use Wifi connection by getting into 'Developer Mode' (and then you can also download 'Preware' & 'Impostah' etc).

    At first use just click emergency call at the bottom right, delete 911, and enter ##DEVMODE#. Then just turn it on and click submit. You'll have to reboot and then you'll be in.

    On GSM it's #*DEVMODE# (I always have trouble remembering the order of the # and * at the beginning..)
