    Hay folks,

    Well, like the title says. I pulled out the sim card on my un-hacked, un-jailbroken iPhone, powered it on and I am still able to use wifi and all my apps and widgets (except for the phone and SMS function, obviously)

    I was under the impression that the device was totally useless and it's functionality locked down if the sim card is removed.

    Did I miss a article somewhere that says :apple: now lets iPhones without a SIM card to essentially be used as a iPod Touch with camera built in?

    Please disregard my post if this is old news. :rolleyes:

    If you reset it without the sim card you will not be able to use it anymore. If you are able to stay away from a reset you're good to go.
