    First off, I absolutely love my Palm Pre Plus. I'm convinced it's the best phone for me. I don't regret buying it at all.

    But, lately, things have been going well financially, and I don't think I'll be able to keep up with the monthly data plan fee.

    I still want to be able to use my palm pre for wifi, scheduling, media files, etc. But my question is this: If I decide to switch to another phone, will my Palm be locked? Will I still be able to use it, sort of like a Palm Pilot from the old days? Or, will it be locked until I reactivate it? Can I even reactivate it?


    Thanks in advanced, Precentralers.

    Run the activation bypass tool by Palm here

    You will have to scroll down a little. This will let your phone work as a PDA. There will be no App Catalog though and I'm not sure of other functions like GPS and such.

    then least you could do is click the "Thanks" button.

    GPS works, just not AGPS, it's actually on the page...

    To develop and test against the webOS Location Services APIs, you'll need to enable Location Services (these are usually enabled during first use, but can be enabled separately by running the Location Services app from the webOS Launcher). Note that GPS fixes will generally be slower than on an activated device due to the lack of Assisted GPS (A-GPS), which requires carrier network connectivity.

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Just turn off data on your Phone too so it doesn't keep bugging you about no data connection. But the moment you switch phones/plans the Pre will keep on working as a PDA.

    Does that mean I don't need to worry about running any programs? All I need to do is cancel my data plan with Verizon?

    OP, you don't have to do anything. Once you deactivate your service, your Pre will still function normally if you use wifi. The only thing you can't do is make phone calls. You can still purchase apps and use the Update app.

    I'd recommend turning Airplane Mode on to increase battery life.
