    Since the new iPhone is out we are seeing 4 and 4S on craigslist for decent prices. We were thinking about getting the kids iPod Touch's for Christmas, but maybe just get them the phone with more storage for less and let them use them wifi only. But is it possible to iMessage without a phone number attached to the account. Set up is different from first look compared to how my wife's iPad is compared to my iPhone. Thanks for any advice.

    You can iMessage without a SIM card/phone number on an ipod touch. If it is for the kids I don't see the need for an iPhone.

    iMessage is not cellular constrained. It is done through Apple's servers. You can use an iPhone, iPod and iPad to send messages through iMessage as long as all the devices are on iOS 5. I send messages from my iPhone 4 to my daughter's iPad when she's at home on WiFi.

    iMessage can be used on wifi without a data plan, however, iMessage is only between Apple devices and only if it’s turned on.

    You also must sign in to iMessage and Facetime in settlngs. That requires an Apple ID.
