Is there any way to skip past the MotoBlur registration? I just picked up my Atrix and powered it on. Since I don't plan to ever use MotoBlur once I have the phone rooted, how can I get past the MotoBlur registration screen without registering?

You can't skip it, but I did notice it is an added security feature.

Anytime you swap out SIM cards, it will ask for your email and password on bootup. You phone is basically unusable until you enter the info correctly.

That's all Android phones from what I understand. I know my Craptivate wouldn't open any Google apps without providing credentials, but the rest of the onboard memory and such was still accessible.

Yes please, I need to know to. I just got mine and I don't want this crap registration. Can the previous poster elaborate on the procedure? Thanks!

You could just give it an email address that doesn't exist, and set a password you'll never remember. For the record, I didn't like having to register a motoblur account either.

hi guys.
i found if you press the menu touch button on the motoblur set up screen it gives you the option to skip setup.

any one else agree??!

That's on Bell Atrix, AFAIK. You must do the key sequence on AT&T's Atrix.
