Default Use before activating.

I want to buy the LG Optimus Slider, is there any way I could use it as an mp3 player before I activate it?

You can use the phone before activating it. You just will not have 3G or the ability to send/receive calls. Everything else should work.

Yes. You should be able to do that just fine.

I know others have done the same on phones and never activated them.
