I have been thinking about upgrading to the iPhone 4. I currently have a 3G. My question is will I still be able to use my 3G not in the capacity making calls but turning it into a glorified iPod Touch? Nothing is currently wrong with the phone, just think its time to upgrade?

My other question, has anyone tried this yet? I would like to know if it is worth the $199 upgrade.

MacBook 2.26GHz, 250HD, 2GB DDR3 SDRAM, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone 3G 8GB, Airport Extreme, iPod

    You can use a no longer activated iPhone as an iPod Touch, but in order to install a firmware update on a no longer activated iPhone or restore a no longer activated iPhone with iTunes if wanted or needed, the no longer activated SIM card that was used with the iPhone when it was activated must be inserted in the iPhone to complete the process. This does not involve re-activating the iPhone.

    Is it worth AT&T's subsidized price for the iPhone 4 which requires signing a new 2 year contract, I thought so or I would not have done it and I and continue to think so. There is a significant improvement with the iPhone 4 and the 3G.
