I'm hoping someone here can help solve an issue and settle an argument. Thanks in advance.
background: I build mobile web sites. No native apps. Just clean web sites that are designed for mobile. I'd like to test a particular site on the same phone the client uses, the Torch 9800.
I'd like to believe that its possible to obtain a phone for testing purposes that:
- has wifi capabilities
- has no carrier plan and hence, no data plan
- simply connects to the office wifi and can see my development sites address.
i already have a localhost web server running that allows my Droid to connect to the dev site via a shared network connect.
Is it necessary for a BB (say...one thats purchased as unlocked off eBay) to have a carrier plan in order for the wifi to work?
