    Hi,

    I would like to use a windows device as a touchscreen remote control (Smartglass, etc) but do not want to go as expensive or large as a surface or dell venue, etc.

    If I were to pick up a (prepaid) WP8 phone like a Lumia and never activate it, would I still be able to connect to the Windows Store, buy and use apps and connect to the internet (WiFi only, of course)?

    I don't see why not, but you never know.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    you don't need cell service or to activate the phone to use it.

    Just make sure you're always connected to WiFi of course or you would not have data.

    I figured as much, but I've seen other devices that limit functionality without service

    thanks
