    I just have purchased a myTouch from my firend who switched to different carrier. The thing is that I don't have a data plan so I can't sign into google account.
    Yesterday I have downloaded a user guide for myTouch and find out that I don't need to sign in with google account and still be able to use the phone except I will not be able to use google features.
    Why I can't skip the log in process?
    Any help please :(

    There are multiple ways..

    Code (Text):
    1. When you start up the phone without a sim card, it goes into a  locked screen that says "no sim card found", and you can't even get into  the registration app. So the first step is to get around that screen.  You have to connect to your phone with adb shell and get root access,  and then type the following command:
    2. sqlite3  /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db  "INSERT INTO system (name, value) VALUES ('device_provisioned', 1);"
    4. And  then reboot the phone. When it starts up again it will go into the  registration screen instead of the locked "no sim card" screen.
    6. This  assumes that you have the sqlite3 binary on your phone. This binary is  provided in RC30 v1.2. Alternatively, you could manually copy the binary  to your phone with adb push, or put it on the sdcard and copy it to  your phone. I can post a copy of just the sqlite3 binary if needed.
    Code (Text):
    1. The second step is to enable and configure wifi, so that the  registration process can connect to the google servers. In an adb shell  session, type the following command:
    3. am start -a  android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.android.settings/.Settings
    5. This  doesn't have to have root access to work. It works fine with the  "shell" user that adb on non-modded phones runs as.
    7. That command  will bring up the settings page on your phone. From there, you can  enable wifi and connect to your wifi network, and then proceed with  registration as per normal

    I'm no expert what so ever when it comes to this kind of things but my sister got a "My Touch" as well and what I did is since she didn't want the data plan I went online signed up for a gmail account and used that one. Since the phone supports Wifi you can use all the features programs as long as you get wifi connection.

    Remember like I said I'm no expert.
