    friend is buying a new iPhone next week...said he'd sell me his old iPhone for $20...but i dont plan on getting it connected AT ALL for cellular service...i will use it as an iPod and to connect to WI-FI...atleast thats my plan...what should i know before this transaction goes down? i realize this ? is common however, all the other ?'s in the forum included a service/connection ? where as i dont want to have it connected...thanks in advance!

    I'm pretty sure that once he restores the phone as a new one in iTunes, all he will need to do for u is keep his AT&T sim in the phone while it activates. Then he can take out his sim, u can then just use wifi.

    I'll let others chime in though to confirm my thoughts.
