With SIM cards being such an integral part of any mobile experience nowadays, knowing why you may need a mobile phone without a SIM is essential. Sometimes though you just fancy getting yourself a brand new handset, so that's all you put out to get. Other times you may need a mobile phone just for the sake of keeping in contact with your friends and family. Whatever your reason, you'll want to make sure that you can get the SIM card you need from whichever mobile phone service provider you opt for. This means you'll need to know why you want the mobile phone, and also which network you wish to use.
A Google account is a great way to make sure you can get a mobile phone without a SIM. If you've already got an IMAP email account you can use the Google account to sign up for everything you need: emails, chat rooms, etc. However, if you don't have a Google account you will be unable to use this facility. When setting up the Google account you will be prompted to insert your own Google account information. Make sure you have a Google account and you're golden!
An old android device such as an ereader or a Kindle is another way to receive calls on your mobile phone without a SIM card. This is because these devices support MMS which enables you to send small messages like pictures or videos to other users on their Google account. To do this you need to install the MSQ messenger application which is not free but comes built into some older android devices. Once you've installed the software you can set up your Google account to receive calls from this SMS service.
A third way to send text messages on your smartphone without the need for a SIM card is to use Google's online service called Google Wave. You'll need a Gmail account to register and then you'll have access to all Google's email services including Google Wave. This means you can scan the phone book and search for the phone number you want to send a text to and load it into the Wave app. From there you can choose how you want to contact the person - whether you simply list your name, use their contact info, or use an image of the person you want to contact.
If you're worried about someone sending messages on your mobile phone, you might want to consider installing smart phone spy software. These apps are available for free on Google Play and typically range between ten and forty dollars. These applications work by collecting information from the smartphone and transmitting it back to a server. They then let you know exactly who the person is texting, what conversations are taking place, and if anyone has notified the police or asked for help.
Another option you have without installing anything is to use a computer program called WifiTrap. This is a program which intercepts any signals sent out from the victim's wireless network and displays them on a web page. You can then browse the webpage and determine what the user is doing on their phone, who they are talking with, and if any evidence exists linking the user to any crime. The program works both as a sniffer and as a proxy, so you don't necessarily need to install anything on the victim's mobile phone.
The final way to get sensitive information from an Android smartphone without having to install anything is using third party "shareware" apps. These are apps that you can download for free from websites like Google Play and are very easy to install and use. These third party apps usually allow you to run a scan of your smartphone and retrieve any stored passwords, contact info, and even text messages. However, these apps are not recommended for everyone, and as we said earlier, you should always use a paid program to monitor the activity on your smartphone.
Regardless of the way you decide to get your hands on this data, whether you use a computer program or an app downloaded onto your smartphone, you should always use a paid program to do so. Why? Because there are many companies out there that might be selling this sensitive information for less but it costs the mobile phone carrier to store it on their database so the end users might be paying for a lot more than they bargained for.
