I had this great idea to use my old 3gs phone as an iTouch and load it with DIFFERENT music than my iphone so I have twice the capacity of music.

I had ANOTHER great idea to reformat the old 3gs to factory settings and then reload only what I want. You know, a fresh start.

The first idea was good, the second....

Now my phone 3gs wants me to reactivate it as a phone but I don't want to do that. I have the iPhone 4 and that's my main phone.

Question: How do I get my iphone 3gs to work as an iTouch without transferring over my phone number from the new phone to the old?

Thanks for your help. Ugh.
