    I have an older (2006) Pocket PC vx6700 that I'm giving to my 9 year old son, but it has no sim card. I don't plan on buying a cell plan but just want to let him access the internet on our home wifi network.

    Whenever I try to connect it wants to dial #777.

    How can this be done?

    Thanks,

    Brian

    That phone is CDMA. CDMA phones don't use or have SIM cards. GSM network phones use SIM cards (Nextel's iDEN network also uses them).

    You should just be able to turn on WiFi on the phone. This is the only way you can make it work with your home wireless network. If WiFi is disabled (by the carrier) on the phone, then you're out of luck.

    Refer to your user manual if necessary.
