    I want to just be able to use it as a photo/video/music player. I have already activated it. Would I be able to still use this if I cancelled my account?

    I have a feeling the answer is no since you can't even access those features without creating an account first.

    there is a work around to make the iPhone work without a SIM. This includes the following

    -All other features. EXCEPT SMS and PHONE of course
    Email: not sure might work via WiFI (not 100%)

    the work around is in the WILD right now. Go find it.

    walkaround? I can do them just by removing my sim card! Of course iPhone SHOULD be able to do that, because what if we upgrade our phones? What if I want to buy a new ATT phone TOMORROW? why can't I use my iPhone still as an iPod? Of course I should be able to, right? Yes, and indeed I can, cuz I just tested it without a SIM CARD.

    The real walkaround should be for phones that HAVE NOT been activated.

    Workaround is actually based on "NON-ACTIVATED" iPhones and "ACTIVATED" iPhones.

    What is the policy on cancellations with the iPhone?
    I know with other ATT phones as a new customer you have 30 days to cancel without a penalty. After that you would incur an ETF.

    but can you sync your music/photos/movies/bookmarks, etc through itunes without a sim?
    i'm sure there are many people that would happily pay activation and cancellation to be able to use the iphone without a sim or service.

    Per the AT&T terms of service, if you cancel within 30 days (i.e. without a penalty) you are required to return the phone for a refund. You can't keep phones bought on contract without paying an ETF.

    i doubt that. you can buy the phone from the apple store and never activate it. what you are quoting is in reference to subsidized phones.
