is there a way to avoid pressing this code every time i reset my phone?
i have bad esn and work the phone with wifi only
yes, you have to install a custom ROM. Google “cyanogenmod” or look up the ICS [android 4] rom that is quite stable.
I already have the cyanogenmod, each time I restart the phone it asks me to activate, but I will cancel this screen wiith just with home button.is there a way to avoid this one too?Regards,Zack
