Hi there,

After I full erase of my Palm Pre2 I've noticed you really need a wireless provider with data, although Wifi is available, to create or sign in to Palm Profile. Why can't Palm / HP give the option to use Wifi as an alternative? I'm now in the situation that my smartphone won't start up at all, since my dutch provider doesn't provide roaming mobile internet and I can't get to my Palm Profile. It would also be nice to have an option, appropriate in my case now, to ignore the Palm Profile / activation to at least be able to use my phone for phone calls. I'm now stuck with a worthless damn fine machine.

I think its because it needs to set up your phone for whatever cellular network you are on. Which it cant do on wifi.

you can use the bypass utility (or ##bypass# on pre2) to do what you are requesting.

That's true, you don't need wireless to do it.

thanks for replies. I've found in this forum a way to enter Developer mode, that gave me the option to Activate via Wifi. Helped me out.
