    Is it possible to use Wi-Fi on Android HTC Desire without SIM card?

    I was planning to buy an Android HTC Desire and would like to have Wi-Fi connection on it without putting on a SIM card. Is this possible?

    Usually phones get into a lockdown mode when kept without a SIM card. Android has introduced devices such as Xperia that works without a SIM card. There is a popular notion that we could use the Wi-Fi on phone till a SIM is inserted and after that Wi-Fi would not work if SIM is not put in. This is absolutely wrong. The phone can be made to access Wi-Fi connection without a SIM. The only thing is that on starting up it opens a dial pad for making emergency call which can be closed without any issues. Wi-Fi can be enabled but other features like SMS, MMS and call will not work.

    Hello friend ,

    Yes you can use wifi connection even when you have not inserted your simcard

    At the start up of your phone jus unlock your screen and then on your wifi , you are done

    you can use all applications which are not related to call functions

    you can use apps such as wats app etc

    You can use

    Android HTC Desire without Sim card can be compatible if your WiFI phone is built in a system that can receive wifi signal

    without sim.It is true without Sim can not do functions like sms/mms/and call.WiFi system on Android

    HTC Desire can use WIFI but without sim card WIFi net is useless you can not do downloading/ e-mailing/on line activities

    can not be done.So you can buy HTC Desire where WiFi connection will be available without SIM CARD.

    Thank You,

    Hi, The phone can have ACCESS to Wi-Fi connection without a SIM.
    Without any problem
    but other features like SMS, MMS and CALL will not work.
    Android has introduced devices such as Xperia that works without a SIM card. As the HTC Desire is based on android it will work without a sim you can get access only to some of the FEATURES of the mobile like WI-FI, Internet, ALARM. And most of the features will not work such as SMS, MMS, PHONEBOOK and CALL.

    Dear Friend,

    Normally after removing the SIM card from the phone , it get to lock down mode


    But devices like Xperia which also run without SIM card are now available in market


    Many people or say majority have and wrong thinking that till the SIM card is inserted in the phone ,WI-FI will work and once removed ,Wi-Fi will not work. But they are absolutely wrong.You can access your phone’s Wi-Fi without SIM card.


    You have to be sure that when you turn on your phone without SIM card you have to close a dial pad of emergency call which get automatically opened up.
