Cry will TB functions continue working w/o service

I am considering cancelling Verizon service. Wondering if the data features will still work through WiFi? Will the phone be locked? I am rooted w/ Rom bamf. I love the Tb. I've had it since launch.

You should be able to run it on wifi, you just won't authenticate with the cell towers. Its the same thing as if you switch phones and keep the TB around as a backup-- you can turn it on and play with it, but can't make calls or sms via tower.

You could always use it and GrooveIP and make calls using Google Voice over IP (wifi-only phone)
