Can i use an iPhone as an ipod touch?

Question by Blake S: Can i use an iPhone as an ipod touch?
I found an iPhone at my school and nobody claimed it so they said i could have it. I already have a phone on a good plan and i don’t want to switch and have to pay for data. Is there any way to use it just for wifi and downloading apps and listening to music? I restored it to factory defaults and erased all settings. There was no sim card in the phone when i found it so i assume that somebody bought(or stole) with the intention of using it and then lost it. When i turn the phone on it says “Insert a valid SIM card with no PIN lock to activate phone. How can i get past that and get to home screen and music? Do i need to “unlock” this phone?

If i were to use it as my main phone later on will it be locked?
What would i sell it as? locked or unlocked? And how much could i expect to get for it in good condition?

You can’t access ANY iPhone features once you’ve restored it to factory settings unless you insert a SIM card from AT&T. If you have a friend with AT&T, you can insert their SIM into the phone to get it started, then take it out…but you’ll need one every time you restart or turn off the phone since it won’t startup without a SIM. You could also buy a blank AT&T SIM card from eBay for a few bucks. Assuming you do that, then yes: you can use the phone as an iPod touch since the iPod is simply an App on the iPhone.

Is the phone is good condition? If it is, just sell it online and use that money to buy a new iPod touch! 😛
