Will a boost mobile phone work (particularly the GPS) without service?
Hi, everybody. I'm going to New Zealand in a couple weeks and am looking for a smartphone that I can use as a GPS and camera for my trip. I'm not planning on making any calls, so I don't need a service provider. I found a LG G5 for super cheap that would be perfect if it will work. So can I take it and just use the GPS and phone without having a plan with Boost? Also, and less importantly, would it work on WiFi networks in New Zealand?
edit* After looking into, the seller of the G5 must either be mistaken or a scammer because the LG G5 doesn't appear to work with Boost Mobile. But I'm still interested in the question in general. Will a Boost Mobile smartphone GPS work without a provider?
