    I may be getting a used iPhone for relatively cheap. I already have my own phone and plan, so I don't want to use the iPhone for making calls, etc..

    Is it possible to simply use the iPhone without a plan? I want to be able to use all its features, just not the phone part (and obviously no EDGE connection, either).

    I'm pretty sure you can but the post above is right. If you get the iPhone you should sell that touch and use the money for a new one or to cancel your current phone and get an at&t account.

    I really don't want to sign up for a contract with AT&T. Right now I'm just on Virgin Mobile's prepaid service, and I can't afford a full contract. I hardly ever even use my cell phone, probably just a few minutes per week. I'm paying $20 every threee months for my Virgin Mobile phone, and I'm not ready to make the jump to a $40+/month plan.

    I just want the iPhone so I can use the camera and it's built-in speaker and microphone, which the iPod touch doesn't have.
