    I want to get the iphone but not use it as a phone. I have a good reason.

    I pay $15 a month unlimited everything with sprint... I am no longer considered a 3rd party employee with them since the Compusa I worked at closed down. but i am still on the plan... that was almost a year ago...

    Someday sprint will call me and tell me to switch plans... when that day comes i dont want to have spent 300 on an itouch and have to spend the additional 400 to get the iphone.

    plus i want the camera features to send pictures to my dot mac account.

    so here is my question.

    Is there a 100% positive way to:

    buy - activate - cancel (within 30 days) - and still use all the features of the iphone minus the phone.

    i hear after every update you have to re-activate. is this true? does that **** my idea? if it isnt possible can anyone shed an idea on why its not?

    Essentially I want it to be my new ipod ( i still have a mini right now)
    i listen to punk music... its all only 4 GB... so space really isnt that big of an issue... 8gb is plenty.
    i shoot a lot of HD video of skateboarding and whatnot.. so video
    internet on the road (wifi)
    and be able to send photos i take with it to my dotmac webgallery

    and still be able to reacivate the service when sprint catches on.

    Yep, I used mine as an ipod for a week before I had the balls to put a sim card in. In fact I don't really like the phone bit (though the sms is neat) and the cameras crap. But as a wifi video ipod it's the bollocks. I may even sell mine and just get a Touch:rolleyes:.

    To summarise - yes you'll be able to do all that.:)
