Hello,

I have a Sprint g2 I can't use since I am on verizon...and for whatever reason no one will offer me over 200 for it. So i kinda want to just use it...but is there a way I could just stop the phone from looking for a network, remove bloat, and essentially just use as a mini tab?

Seems like you could just turn off data in settings

Well yeah, I did that but aside from that there are always a few warning messages, popups, notifications and stuff because the phone isnt attached to an account.

Id like to somehow strip that all out along with the bloat stuff.

Root it. Get titanium backup and freeze any and all sprint apps and bloatware. Disable mobile data and leave wifi on. I did this to an old motorola photon and its docking cradle and turned it into an android tv box. Even found a workable old version of xmbc for it.
