    I just received one of the Pre 2 developer devices, installed my SIM card from my Pre Plus in it and am now using it as my primary phone. With out the SIM installed, the Plus just displays the insert SIM animation when the phone is booted.

    Is it going to be possible to still use the Plus to test applications? If so, am I going to need to swap the SIM between phones each time I want to use one or the other?

    I would like to have the ability to test apps on webOS 1.4.5 as well as 2.1.

    Thanks in advance!

    Not a GSM guy so I'm not 100% on this. But I believe you can put your plus in airplane mode with the sim in it then take the sim out and continue to use it on wifi.

    That will NOT work.

    The OP is asking about using a webOS 1.4.5 Pre Plus for development. (#*/##)DEVMODE# was added in 2.x.

    To the OP: Go to the above linked page, download devicetool.jar, and run it on the command line/terminal access on your computer. It will bypass activation on your device and place it in developer mode. When the Pre Plus reboots, you have a fully functional Pre Plus on WiFI (but without a Profile, so no App Catalog -- but there's a patch for that in Preware from me)

    Oops! Sorry about that -- Didn't read carefully.

    arthurthornton is, of course, right about what to do.
