Rooting a factory reset phone before activation

    Just wondering if you can root an HTC Incredible before you activate the phone. Right now every time I start the phone up it goes to the activation screen before I am able to do anything. Ideally, I would like NOT to activate it right now, and be able to access the phone itself as normal. Then I could go about using the unrevoked 3 tool to root.

    The reason for not activating is because I am selling it to a friend and I would like to root it for him, but he doesn't want to be without a phone for a few days while I ship it to him and his current phone is deactivated.

    Any ideas??
