    I am thoroughly confused!
    In less than 12 hours I will be in Paris. My plan was to buy Pre 2 at some SFR store. I don't have any US sim, Canada sim or SFR sim... my questions are:
    1. Can I get by using the device without activation or with activation with an Israeli (a non launch country) sim?
    2. can I install apps without using the app store somehow?
    3. can I update the phone without activation?
    4. Will I be able to use my country's data plan to surf the net?

    Please answer quickly as I don't have much time left before I go to the airport.

    Thanks!

    If you are going to buy the phone at a SFR store just ask them if you can activate it and create/load a profile using one of their sims.

    After that is done you can buy apps from the app catalog and get OTA udates over wifi.

    But you will need to unlock the phone to use any other SIM than a SFR SIM.

    I will ask them to activate it. Is unlocking proccess as easy as following instructions in some thread or harder like buying some code from ebay?

    Oh....
    Welll thanks but that's the last straw. the keyboard, the activation, the language the fonts, and now unlocking too?
    I don't understand why Palm/HP doesn't want us to buy the device :-(

    There's a rumour the Pre 2 will be launched in Israel.
