I thought this might come handy to work on Atrix phones right out of the box with no SIM, Bypassing the Motoblur registration right to the home screen rather quickly.

Step1 (Bypassing the "No SIM card/Emergency calls only"
-Power up the phone while holding "Volume Down" until "fastboot" appears in top of the screen.
-Use the "volume down" button to navigate through booting options until you see "Boot Android (No BP) then press "Volume Up".
-The phone will skip the "No SIM card/Emergency calls only" right to the Motorblur account setup screen.

Step2 (Byapssing the Motorblur account setup)
-Bring up the virtual keyboard by holding the "Menu" key at the language selection screen of the Motorblur account setup.
-Press the "?123" key followed by ALT then "e" two times in a row, Then type "bluroff" (without the quotations).
Code:
the following keys exactly in this order..
-?123
-ALT
-ABC
-e
-?123
-ALT
-ABC
-e
-b
-l
-u
-r
-o
-f
-f
-Motorblur account setup will shutoff and you will be taken to home screen.

Note: Doing this just once will disable the Motorblur account login in all future boots.

So if we disable moto blurr and leave the sim card in would this let us run stock android without blurr? Would the phone work proper?

No, what OP is trying to say is if you want to mess around with the phone without having to type in a moto blur account and putting in a sim card do the methods above.

Basically its to disable moto blur when you have no sim card and no wifi.

doesnt disable motoblur at all, motoblur is baked in the software, you cant disable it without root, all this does is skip setup...nothing else

The Bell Atrix actually tells you how to skip Blur registration. It's on page 4 of the manual and doesn't require any fancy passcodes. Simply press Menu... Done.

Of course not. Disabling the motoblur account registration is for quick-accessing the phone and/or not wanting motorola to have your personal data on their servers.

Where does it say "disable motoblur"?!! Title reads "no motoblur account" and descriptions says "bypassing".

In short, This is the fastest way to access a brand new motorola phone right after putting in the battery and powering it on.

Thanks and gold luck.

Good. I just checked the AT&T Atrix manual and there's nothing about skipping the motoblur account registration. I wish it was just the menu button, It took me a while to figure out how to enter the bluroff code.

Thanks

Bell Atrix is easy to fix it

doesnt matter you have a sim or not
