Ok, so I've been researching this for a while and I've found some answers, but not all.  So...any additional information would be nice.  First of all, I know Apple has this article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3406 but it's not helpful for me.


Here's what I want to do

I'm upgrading my phone from the 3GS to the 4S.  I want to be able to give my 6 yr. old daughter my 3GS so she can play games and such.  I don't want to ever upgrade the iOS and I don't want the phone to work.  I just want WiFi for her to download App Store games using my itunes account.


So, here's what I think I need to do.  I think I ust need to sync my 3GS and back up for when I receive the 4S.  Once the 4S is up and running...I think I can just remove the SIM card from the 3GS and turn off all settings for "cellular network".  This way she won't be able to use the phone and the phone won't try to connect to the network.


Is this correct?  Apple's support link (above) is confusing to me because I don't understand why I'd need the SIM card in the old 3GS.


Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

iPhone 3GS, iOS 4.3.3
