How do you make an old iphone into an ipod touch?

After restoring it, it sits there at the multilingual emergency call screen. I just want this old iPhone to basically be an ipod touch. Any way to get around this?

What do you mean? You want to use it for everything but the phone part?

If that's the case, then just go to settings and put it in airplane mode and then re-enable wi-fi. At that point the iPhone will basically be an iPod Touch.
