Using a Windows Phone Offline?

So, I'm wanting to find a windows phone 3rd party without ever setting it up on an actual network. I'm solely wanting it just to play Windows Games while on a WiFi network.

Can this be done relatively easily? Would this require anything special outside of being set up on a WiFi network? Are there any models that are better/worse for this? Any assistance that could be offered would be appreciated. Thanks!

I was given this phone as a gift and have not activated it yet, just been playin with it, pictures and videos. well now I cannot do anything because it is asking me for the 4 number pin when I turn it on and I forgot it. it was the last 4 digits of the phone number of the person that gave it to me and I cannot remember it. anybody know if I have to pay or what I can do to fix? at first it was telling me to try again in 1 minute, 2 minutes etc. now it says try again in like a million minutes, seriously

Just wondering why all the hate

No one really seems to like the Windows phone OS, I don't have any past experience. I hear it used to be bad, but would that be a reason to continue judging it?

I'm interested in trying it out since I don't really have any negative preconceptions. What are your negative thoughts about this phone OS now?

surprisingly affordable way to give my lumia 820 new life

So original lumia 820 battery was about 2 years old and lost it’s ability to hold one charge. I remember there still have a battery from mpj. Swapping a new battery is a surprisingly affordable way to give an old phone the battery life it had when it was new.

New Nokia Lumia 730 coming out leaked specs

It has been we did not write a single post about Nokia, this time we should write because of the new Nokia Lumia 730 coming out soon. Nokia is ready to release this awesome phone sooner which is a well sophisticated version of Nokia Lumia 720, and of course we have seen this phone last year. This new upcoming Nokia Lumia 730 will have a very medium specifications and design but as we all know Nokia has always been focusing on the camera more and more, this time Nokia will focus on the front camera, i think because of the selfies phenomenon.

I’ve been having battery problem with my ativ s i8370

I’ve been having battery problem with my ativ s i8370 and it is getting worse. It can’t really gain anything when I plugged in overnight even in airline mode. It sounds like a battery/charger issue, so I just want to make sure that if there any other possible issue I should consider before shelling out the money to order a replacement extended battery from Mpj. Thank you.

What os should my father-in-law switch to?

Currently, my father-in-law owns a blackberry. But with the current state of RIM and blackberry going down the tubes, it seems that this company will not last beyond another year or so. That worries my father-in-law to the point that he wants to switch to a different phone and OS. He tried Android by purchasing one of those Sony tablets that uses it, but he did not like that OS. I was thinking that maybe he should go to either Windows or iOS. I have an iPhone with iOS and love it, but my father-in-law has this thing against Apple in general and he loves his PC computer. So, I was thinking that he might like Windows phone. I would like to know other people's opinions though. Which OS should my father-in-law switch to? Thanks in advance...

Nokia 521

I am thinking about getting this phone because it's cheap as dirt. I was going to get a flip phone but dang this thing is cheap. I want it for the Nokia and hotspot ability. I feel like I am selling my soul though. I hate windows. I hate the Nokia buyout and the horrible headache I get with windows products. So my question.

Is the 521 alright for a dumb phone that can sometimes do things I might need in a pinch?
