I ask because I already have a phone provided to me, so if I could avoid paying for a data plan and just use wifi for my WP7 that would save me some $$$. I know that I wouldn't have any phone/text features and I'd only be able to get on XBL where there was wifi, but the only thing I use the WP7 for is XBL games so losing those features wouldn't really impact me.
Has anyone done this successfully? thanks!
You can literally start a WP7 phone up without a sim card, skip the insert sim prompt by pushing the back button, put in your Windows Live ID (same as Xbox Live ID) and connect to the internet via Wifi and your good to go. Handheld game console.
