    Would the iPhone function just fine with out the "phone" part? Or would the phone be locked out till its activated by ATT?

    I'm asking since I have a friend who might look for one off e-bay and he says the touch is too thin for his liking and the iPhone is "just right" but hes happy with his current phone. He also says he likes the screen and camera system better on the iPhone then the touch.

    From what i understand, the iPhone cannot be used for even basic features (IE: iPod) without being activated in some fashion.

    Depending on the model and firmware, it could be hactivated by a jailbreak and then used as an IPT.

    Really? I've taken my old iPhones and set them up as simple iPods. No hacking or anything required. Hell I even stuck my parents SIM card on one of them and it worked fine for them. Just took their existing service and did its job.

    I'm not sure, I have to ask him, but I think he wanted to know about the iPhone 4.

    It doesn't need an AT&T plan. if you hook it up to itunes, thats all it needs for activation. I have my spare 3GS as a iTunes/AppleTV remote with no sim card.
