I’ve got an iPhone 5 and it works fully witouth sim unlock. Wifi works, but 3G doesn’t (since it requires a carrier)

When the iPhone is new though you need to activate it first so I’m afraid you can only use it once it’s activated…

Good luck! :)

The iPhone can connect to the Internet via wifi without needing a SIM card. I had an old iPhone around the house doing this.

For good measure I’ll pitch in my 2 cents; on both the oldest and the newest iPhone (2G and 5), this behaviour works as expected :)

Thanks a lot for all your help, friends…
Let’s assume that I bought a brand new iPhone, and I have a wi-fi…
Is there anything I should consider to make it connect to the web without putting a simCard…?
I mean, is there anything I shouldn’t do when I first power on the iPhone…?

Thanks for all of your patience, I appreciate it.

Why do you want an iPhone without a sim? You could get an iPod Touch for cheaper, the new ones look cool.

I think it will be a good investment for the future for template/theme testing purposes :)

The iPod Touch would work great for this. Same screen and browser.

Of course they can. WiFi helps do the trick ;)
