    It can't activate if you already have a 5 and no longer have service on it. To get Verizon service back on it you would have to actually have Verizon put the service back on it. It's already an iPod now even if you turn airplane mode off.

    If you're using the 4S as your own personal iPod, why bother wiping it?

    +1. The iPhone 4S is still worth quite a lot of money, so you'd be better off buying an iPod Touch 4th or 5th gen, then selling the iPhone 4S. Unless of course the 4S is locked...
