thanks all.
Yes you can fake a registration. But IMHO, I see no reason for doing so. I registered my H2O and I've never done a sync in the 5 years I've owned it. The WiFi has never been on except for registering. So just turn on the WiFi, register and then keep WiFi off. That's the easiest solution.

thanks. sounds like a plan. or maybe fake a registration. I've never been "off the grid" with my ereaders, but I like the idea.

Kobo does not check the email address when you register your device so that's the easiest way to not give any personal information. Just remember imapseudonym@erewhon.net and annonymous@nehwon.org are already used.
