Using a Palm Pre as a pda and wifi device

Hello! I was recently given a Palm Pre that had been under a Verizon wireless contract. I would like to use this as a pda and would be able to connect to the interest through the wireless network that we have in our home. Even though I have been able to change the user  name and password on the HP WebOs

web site, I cannot setup the Palm Pre. Is there anyway that I could access a Verizon wireless network just for the purpose of setting up the Pre?

Thank you very much,

Sr. Marguerite

Hello srmarguerite-
The Palm Pre is an exciting device. It may be possible to establish service on our network for a limited time to activate properly and pay for the services while active. However if disconnected, we cannot guarantee for WebOS system will still serve its full purpose for you. Perhaps you'll see the benefit of our network for times when you need a smart phone outside your home. I recommend reaching out to our telesales team for assistance with options. You can reach them at 800-256-4646 Monday - Friday; 8AM-11PM. Keep us posted!

Thanks,

Thank you for your response. By some miracle-not  because of my technical skills-I was able to get the Pre working.

Thanks again,

Sr. Marguerite

Thank you for your response. By some miracle, (and not my technical skills!)

I was able to restart the device and have been able to pick up our in house

internet connection.

Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
