I accidentally ripped out 2 sim pins out of the slot when I put the adapter in the wrong way and I reset it in hopes of the slot working without it maybe? Anyway, does anyone have the broadway.uimage I could use?

Can't you just use devmode to bypass activation*? I see you're using devicetool.jar, and the uimage should be found in the Veer doctor

No, I can't get to the emergency call screen because it's demanding a SIM. I guess I'll pull it from the doctor. Didn't think of that, thanks!

Cool! Thanks! I really wish that A. I was on AT&T so I could use it, and B. I hadn't broken the SIM slot. I guess I can pick up a pretty cheap new one.

I thought T-Mobile was pretty much done re-farming, wasn't it? In my area, they have solid 4G coverage on AT&T frequencies...

So you can have a pre-paid plan on T-Mo, and if you have $100 in your prepaid account, that money doesn't expire until a year later

Then, there's the "WalMart plan" that T-Mobile offers for phones purchased from WalMart... 5GB data, unlimited texts and 100 minutes talk for $30 a month. If i weren't sharing a grandfathered Verizon plan and abusing unlimited data to archive webOS stuff, i'd probably switch to that

I thought so too, but I can't get HSPA on T-Mobile here in KC. I know it works on the phoned because I borrowed an ATT SIM and the H+ symbol lit right up.

Oh my god, I wish Verizon offered a plan like that. I'm on the share everything plan with my Mom Dad and Brother. I would switch to a plan like that, but my mom gets 25% off the Verizon bill with her corporate discount. But I do wish my parents had let me get a smartphone when data was still unlimited.
