    My Nexus 4 has arrived and just wondering if I can do the complete the majority ( if not all ) of the setup and app installation with just a wifi connection ?

    Waiting for a my universal car dock to arrive before I cut my full size SIM and fully migrate onto the 4, but want to have a play beforehand.

    Thanks,

    Nige

    Yes you can! If you have your Google account details handy you can set that up too.

    I did it that way since i didn't have a micro-sim yet. Works just fine :)

    I have done this also, until I get all of my accessories and a case. I also installed GrooVe IP Lite from the Play Store. It lets you make calls through Google Voice.

    I got my nexus 4 to use without a carrier data service relying on my WiFi hotspot modem for my connection and it works great. Then I heard about T-mobile pay as you go talk only no data and decided to add a sim to have the backup for calls if for some reason my WiFi was not working.

    But just to answer your question yes you most certainly can.
