I don't have access to AT&T SIM card and never had AT&T account.
Can an unactivated HTC First be unlocked? Is there a way to bypass activation screen?
thing is...you can but the phone and unlock it im sure. but you will need a sim to tell if its unlocked and be sure about it.
things you should know...
1. the htc first uses a micro sim
2. the htc first has almost zero support from developers and is no longer supported by htc or att
3. the htc first is known to be prone to problems during root and flashing of any kind of kernel or rom
4. it does not have removable storage wich makes our jobs a bit harder.
so if you could, go for another device if you simply dont want to have to constantly mess with it (i personally like to do all the flashing and hacking) so if you want to get a good device cheap...dont use ebay...use this: http://www.cellularcountry.com/
