You can, but it isnt recommended. It will ring/vibrate/be recognized in itunes without the LCD/Digitizer. The screen needs to have #1 and #2 ribbons connected at the minium for it to work. #3 does not (ear speaker). Itunes should recognize a device once it is plugged into the computer, with or without the screen assembly.
