    An iPhone without a SIM card is basically just an iPod Touch. It can do everything except make cellular network phone calls or get 3G internet access. :)

    Without the sim if it wasn't activated prior to you receiving it then it will say that it "requires activation" and it will only show the slide to unlock screen. In order to use it you should just jailbreak it using redsn0w and it will be "hacktivated" in the process and will function without a sim card. If you want, you can unlock it by downloading ultrasn0w from cydia.
