    I bought the 6 plus this week now i want to use my old iphone 5 as an ipod while working out, I tried to just remove the sim but when i restart its telling me i need a sim to use it.

    My question is the phone unusable until i get a non working sim from AT&T store (thats what ive been reading online) or can i get it unlocked if its locked with AT&T

    or is there another way to use this without having to buy an unused sim?

    thank you!

    any old nano SIM will work, there just needs to be one in the slot. didnt your new phone come with a new SIM?
