Would it be worth it to get an iphone but just use it as a wifi device and an ipod?

    You might as well just get an iPod touch if that's what you want. It's essentially an iPhone without the phone. It does WiFi, you browse the web with it, and it has all the iPod functions. in your case the only drawback would be lack of a Mail app.

    yes there is many ways to activate the iphone without a sim card, all are fairly easy I've heard. Try doing a search.

    Yes. I did it and love my use of the iPhone as a glorified iPod.

    External Speaker!

    One of the small, by very important, features that will make it better than the iPod Touch is the external speaker.

    It is so nice to watch a quick video or something and not have to put in the earbuds. Also, this makes it very nice to share music or video with someone else!

    If it matters to you, the Touch is 8 mm thin and the iPhone is 11 mm.

    That's what I plan on doing. The mail app is very important to me, as is the ability to add events in ical.

    I'm planning to just hack the iPhone as well as long as the next firmware update doesn't lock out these hacks.

    As said before the speaker on the iPhone is just plain horrible, since you can barely hear it at full volume, it's just about absolutely useless. Has to be one of the worst external speakers I've ever seen on a phone, which is sad for a device like the iPhone.
