Hey Folks, I am an owner of a new HTC Evo View 4g hoping to find answers to the following questions...

Is there a way to bypass the Sprint Hands Free Activation when you power up Evo View 4g?

Is there a way to cancel the constant sync of nothing? When it is powered on an connected to wifi the "sync" icon shows up, but when I go to Settings>Accounts & Sync, there is nothing checked. So I click on "Cancel Sync" and it stops.

I have S-off, root and CWM recovery, with HBoot 1.13.

Any help would be appreciated.

I would like to know how to disable the hands free activation as well, it is super annoying. My View is bone stock, unrooted.

Install No Lock - click on No Lock to switch on Locking Disabled - when you next boot up No Lock blows away the Sprint Logo and Activation screen - at least that worked for me

I think you can get rid of the nagging prompt if you can somehow obtain the MSL/SPC code.

If I am thinking this correctly, after you obtain the MSL/SPC code, you need to go into EPST mode (read here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1146127) then change the phone number to something else...

The hard part is getting the MSL/SPC.

OR you can just sign up for a service, have it activated, then just turn the radio off and cancel the service within 3 days for a full refund.

Done.

No Lock works for me too!
Thanks matthew2582. The No Lock app trick works for me too. For the benefit of others who wan't to try it, i noticed the following caveats: The tablet must be in Airplane mode (yes, wifi still works in airplane mode) and you must turn the tablet off rather than use the restart option.

Love this forum. I looked for solutions on this issue for hours unsuccessfully (well, I found options that involved rooting the tablet, but didn't want to go that route) before finding this.

Does anyone have a link to NO LOCK? I have purchased these as gifts so I want to give them the information on how to remove the activation menu if required.

Also, can this be done from STOCK without ROOTING?

No Lock is free of charge and in the Market here -- https://market.android.com/details?i...android.nolock

And you don't need to do anything in terms of changing any wifi or airplane settings -- just install the app, enable No Lock and you are all set

And I forgot to mention -- no rooting required -- just stock app for stock tablet

Matthew...good news. Thank you! One last question, if you uninstall No Lock, will the Sprint items stay gone?

Nothing is being changed or removed in any way -- No Lock just turns off screen locking and has the coincidental effect of zipping past the Sprint boot screen and their activation screen
