I upgraded to a Razor and did a reset on my old Droid X. I thought that it would just come back up and use WiFi to download games.
It is at a prompt to initialize the phone and I can't get passed it.
Any suggestions for a way for my kids to play Angry Birds on my old phone without it being a cell phone?
Try http://www.droid-life.com/2010/06/10/tip-how-to-bypass-android-activation-screen-on-motorola-droid/. Looks like it may work on the X also. You may need to do it again after any reboots.
try what pjnc linked. if that doesn't work, then i would go to verizon and have them activate it. you have to be able to activate an old phone. what happens if your razor were to break and you needed to use the X for a while? there's got to be a way to do it. just make sure your unlimited plan stays in tact (if you have unlimited data).
