I just got my 4S and did "not" want to activate it just yet. Before I use it and play with my FIRST IPHONE....I want to have a case on it. However, lol...my question is...can I slide that lock screen where it is telling me to "configure" and play with it "without" activating it? Or will it activate it automagically? I have an EVO and I am using it to tether my laptop (no internet here at this house - but will in a week when I move back to FLA)...so I'm not entirely sure my iPhone 4S will have the signal I need to use the mobile hotspot. So long story short is I want wait until I am at my House in FLA before activating it...I'll have GOOD internet through brighthouse and killer wifi...BUT I want to play with my iPhone 4S so dang badly now, lol!!
