I'll have to get my new phone from depot tonight because vodafone didn't deliver on the day promised. No big loss, except the vendor on ebay, who has the unlock codes states that after 4pm on Friday, that it could 72 hours until he sends the code. Seeing its a bank holiday, I'm thinking I won't get it until next Tuesday. I was hoping to sort this new phone out over the long weekend.
So, the question is: can I set my google accounts, and restore the apps, and possibly root and install a new rom, without a connected sim card. Is there a verification step that won't allow your device to be recognised by google, without one?
PS: I did write a email to vodafone asking them to send me the imei, but I'm not expecting much from them...
