Is it possible to simulate a carrier with some piece of hardware so that you can test an application on mutiply Android phones without having to pay the carrier fees for each phone ?

                                                             Thanks,
                                                            Bob H

Alternatively, use an emulator:

Everything works fine on the emulator ( I am testing a location service). If I am understanding correctly the WiFi part of the hardware/software stack will work without a carrier.
