My son was 3. No trick or bribe could make him want to go. My daughter is 21 months and takes off her pants and diaper and sits on the potty but doesn't go. They will do it when they want to so try not to stress out over it=)

My son was also 2 1/2.  Pre school was starting the following fall.  We told him that he wouldn't be able to go if he wasn't potty trained. We bought him big boy underwear (pull up's are just glorified underwear).  He was trained in 2 days.   My daughter was also 2 1/2.  Same thing.  Bought her big girl underwear and it took 2 days.  Was dry overnight within 4 days.

My 2 1./2 year old son potty trained in one day, last Monday.  I drew a big colorful chart for him on his board in his play room. I told him he'd earn 1 star for peeing, 2 for pooping, and if he filled up the board, I'd buy him that monster hummer he's been wanting.  Bribery will get you everywhere. lol.  He's been diaper free ever since, no accidents! Its all about making it a fun game I think. Good luck!
