iPhone is a Apple product...I have an old iPhone 2G....I can connect to itunes.I am a photographer and like to capture wedding photographs...so I have less knowledge about these new technologies...

Thank you:eek:
When posting on a forum like this, it's a good idea to actually ask a question.

Don't just post with "I've got an iPhone and take wedding photos". So what? You didn't ask anything, so how do you think you'd get an answer?

Also, if you've got your own query, start a new thread - don't just post your pointless rely in someone else's thread.

insert a sim card and let it activate, then remove sim card and use as iPod touch.
2G works different than 3G, 3GS or Iphone 4, Itunes actually asks you to pick plan and you have to stick with it while 3G, 3G or Iphone 4 just activate it and bring the phone to home screen w/o requiring you to pick any plan.

OP, just use redsn0w to hacktivate & unlock the phone. You can get this tutorial from http://www.iclarified.com. Once you jailbreak & unlock the phone, you can use it as an ipod touch.
