    I'm going to buy my friend's old iphone 3g, but before i do i want to make sure that i can use it without a sim card. so basically use it as an ipod touch with camera ect..

    this will work right?

    Yes, it will function just like an iPod touch. You will have a "No Service" message in the statusbar, and I am not sure if battery life suffers, but I doubt it does.

    EDIT: What price are you going to pay for it? Unlocked 3G's sell for good money, more than an iPod touch. If he's giving you a good deal, you could sell it for a higher price and make a sizable profit.
