Bypass Galaxy S3 Activation

Hi all,

I just have a question about activation. I just received the Galaxy S3 that I ordered. I want to wait until 2/1 to activate it' but I'd like to be able to play around with it a little bit first using wi-fi. Is there a way to bypass activation? I've tried the "4 corners" method, but it just won't work for me.  Thanks

  • Hi Zachary,

    When you say bypass the activation, I imagine you're talking about the Hands Free Activation that the phone jumps into on start up.

    I'm not aware of there being any way of getting around this, however, you can cancel it each time it starts.

    For the activation to complete, there needs to be an active phone number assigned to the device and it needs to have a cellular data connection.

    If there's no phone number, or if you keep the phone on Wi-Fi, the activation should fail on its own anyway and not come up again until you reboot.

    I hope that helps.
