    Hello,
    newb here
    I was wondering if I purchase a brand new Palm Pre off of ebay that has never been activated with a clean esn, would I be able to just use it straight out of the box without a wireless carrier? I just want to use it as a PDA/media device.

    No. Get an iTouch if you just want a media device with a speaker.

    if you want media player with pda capabilities there are way better devices out there.

    for me the value in pre is the "cloud"-synchronization

    Perhaps the key point is this - the Pre will not work in any way without a carrier. It could have been designed to work without one and use wifi for synching, but it has not been. It is a brick without a carrier.

    couldn't he use the activation ypass (rooting required)??

    but I agree, without cell service, the there are far better multimedia devices out there
