    Does Samsung s390g require phone activation for wifi?

    Looking for inexpensive device students can use to connect to wifi in my classroom. Is it possible to use the Samsung s390g for wifi access without buying prepaid minutes? If not, any other ideas for inexpensive devices to connect to wifi? Thanks

    This has been posted before in this forum.

    No, the phone does not have to be active to connect via wifi. This is also true of Tracfone's other 3G/wifi phone the LG 840G touchscreen.

    As far as other suggestions, I would suggest any android over any feature phone including this one. Androids can operate entire apps in wifi without activating, including the ability to make and receive phone calls for free using google voice/grooveIP and other such apps. And they are cheaper. Virgin Mobile's Venture is $30, the LG Optimus Elite in black or white (iPhone pretender) is $50 at Best Buy and so on. There are plenty of cheaper choices with more capability than this phone or in fact than anything Tracfone offers.
