Can I use an old iPhone as iPod after deactivating it?
I pre-ordered an iPhone 3G S, so next Friday I would like to give my 1st Gen iPhone to my daughter so she can use it as an iPod Touch. I read that it's possible but can somebody tell me what are the steps to follow?
I have a MacBook, but she has a Windows PC... Is it possible to remove all my music, contacts, videos, etc so she can sync it with her computer just as an iPod.? Do I have to remove the sim card? Will she be able to sync it and download software updates if it's deactivated?
Thank you for your help

As long as you leave the original, previously activated SIM in the phone, it'll have full functionality (except for phone, obviously).

If you're worried about the SIM, you can hacktivate it via QuickPwn/PwnageTool.
