Hello All,

I am in the process of renewing my contract with Verizon and will be getting an s4 mini. I haven't gotten the phone yet but from what I understand I will need to activate it once I receive it. Before I activate the phone and start paying for the data I would like to play with it for a while and also try it with a European sim card. In the meantime I will keep using my previous phone until I am ready to switch. Can this be done?

I have seen a video online to bypass the activation screen for s3 and was wondering if there is a similar procedure for the Verizon s4 mini. Is it possible to root perhaps? I never had a smart phone but I have jailbroken a couple of e-readers.

thanks

or at least would it be possible to use my European sim card right away?
