Might be a dumb question...but here goes.

Can you use an iPhone as a Touch by simply not activating it with AT&T, or does it have to be activated to be able to use any of the features?

Newb question I know...just trying to figure out if you can use an iPhone as a Touch w/ a camera.

In short, yes, you can. At least with the 2g you can. My brother had one and cancelled his AT&T contract and used it with wifi for everything except phone calls.

So you can still connect up to the App Store and purchase and all the other jaz, just no cell calls?

as long as there is a sim in it (working or not), it works. when i bought my wife her 3gs, i told the at&t folks that i would swap out the sim later as she had stuff on her 3g iphone that she wanted to back up and transfer to her new one. they put in a blank sim, and it worked great. before that, it had the pic of the itunes with the usb cable on the front...
