    To bypass activation screen, press emergency call button, then at the dialer, press *#83786633, then press the Home key! Enjoy!

    What's the purpose of by passing the activation screen? Probably a dumb question but I was curious.

    so if you are using the phone before activating it, really helpful for store employees

    I entered "*#83786633" and it just says "Softkey is enabled", in addition to having the numbers that I entered, erased. Am I doing something wrong?

    No, you're doing just right. All you left out is the final step...hit the home button.

    If everyone is curious as to why this is usefull....I currently have an employee account with Verizon. Therefore, the facinate that I bought on Ebay and recieved on Friday can not be activated by simply dialing *228. It has to be activated by my account manager on Monday. I would like to still play with the phone throughout the weekend, so I wanted to bypass the activation. Hence the purpose. Another reason, if you're in a store and you have a demo phone that you don't want to activate, but show off all the features to your customers, then...bypass the activation. Hope this helped.

    Thanks for the tip. It worked perfectly. I can't activate the phone for another week but now I can play.

    This works great as long as you don't turn the phone off. Is there a way to make this hack last until a reset is done. I use the Trophy but want to use the Fascinate for audiobooks, music; etc.:confused:

    Thank you for this. My kid uses my old fascinate to play games on. He calls it his video game. He ended up factory resetting it and I was completely perplexed on how to get it back to working order for him. Try figuring anything out with a 3 year old screaming "ANGRY BIRD SPACE" in your face :p

    FYI, easier to remember key sequence as *#TESTMODE
