Im thinking about getting a mavic so at the moment im reading as much as i can.i have a few questions,i use a samsung s5 as my own phone but i wouldnt want to use that ,so the question is if i use another phone does it need to have a sim card and have credit on it or is the phone just being used as a viewing screen.?

= You can put the phone in airplane mode to avoid any incoming call/notif/messages.

Yes u can. The phone does not have to be activated or unlocked. Just don't put a Sim in it. Just like the other guy said. Use it as just a viewing device.
