Since the iPhone is arguably a greatly enhanced iPod Touch, shouldn’t the user be allowed to use the iPhone just for WiFi similar to how one could with the iPod Touch? This feature is greatly needed for the international traveler.[…] Thanks to CLIFFosakaJAPAN for providing this nice story on Digg.
What other users say about this:
streak: And for an intermediate state, where the phone is still usable, configure Mail to check for new messages Manually.
felchdonkey: Just take out the SIM card. Sheesh.
I just tried it on my (non-hacked) iPhone right now. WiFi works fine with the SIM removed.
