How to: Bypass Activation on the Samsung Galaxy Tab

For those of you that purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab this weekend and found a way to sneak out of the store without anyone forcing you to tack on a data package, here is your trick to bypassing the activation screen.  As you long as you can count, you should be able to do this in a couple of seconds and then will be on your way to enjoying the wi-fi tethered mobile version of this first legitimate Android tablet.


  1. Press “Volume Up” once.
  2. Press “Volume Down” twice.
  3. Press “Volume Up” three times.
  4. Press “Volume Down” four times.
  5. Enjoy!

Stay close to Android Life after this for a couple of additional activation bypass instructions.

Cheers Mushka!

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    the other artists.

    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    Seriously why do people post “first”?

    “Wow mom look, I was the first person to make a post on that thread!”
    “Very good, momma always said you were special Jacob”

  • Ivan

    This is the funniest comment thread I've ever read on DL. Every comment Jacob makes is fail! Hysterical!

  • Mrpicolas

    Wow this whole thread is full of fail jacob get your head out of the turkey and play nice..

  • Jason w.s.

    lol, you douche bags are in rare form today, jk ;p crackin me up

  • Miguelm360

    I just tried it, no luck….where is this procedure suppose to take place?

    • PAKmann2k

      I would be interested in knowing this too. Usually, Droid-Life is full of helpful people and comments. Today is not that day.

      Kellex, or Mr. Picolas, after making a new post, please add a comment saying “first”, so others can shut the F up. Such a lame move on some people.

      Jacob, I am not picking on you. You just happen to be a small piece in a much larger pie made of crap. Nothing personal, just happens that you are the “un-shelled” nut in my cake today. You may stick out, but it is nothing good, and I would rather eat a box of toothpicks than see your “first” post. How about making a “first” post worth reading? Is that too complicated for some people. That is rhetorical, yes, it is way too complicated, so Kellex, just post “first” in anything you post. If someone beats you to it, we call all punch them in the nuts with a pipe wrench.

      Thanks for listening to my rant for the day, I will be here all week. tune back in. 🙂
