    Default I have a 3G w/no sim card. I want to use it as a wifi only ipod touch to use apps?

    I was given an old 3G 8GB iPhone, reset. No sim card. Don't know what OS is on it.

    Can someone please tell me what I need to do to get it to work as an iPhone without the phone part. Basically I want to install apps thru Cydia and play games, etc with it.

    Assume I'm don't know much...as in if I need a sim card how do I obtain one or can I borrow one from my current iPhone, etc. What are all the steps, software dowloads I need, etc.

    Thank you!

    This is definitely possible. However we need a bit more details on the phone (current baseband and installed OS) before I can recommend an approach.

    Run TinyUmbrella with the phone connected to the computer (and iTunes installed) - this should allow you to find out the info we need. (note that TinyUmbrella doesn't seem to detect phones properly on windows x64 OS)

    Bit tricky at 3.1.3 - this is because the two jailbreaks for 3.1.3 rely on the phone being activated first.

    If you have the ability to downgrade to 3.1.2 then this is much easier.

    If you could kindly direct me on how to downgrade I'll give it a shot. It's there is utility download required or a firmware file I need to download, I'm sure I can figure it out from there.

    Hold on.. I forgot you have a 3G iPhone

    use redsn0w 0.9.4 (or 0.9.2 if you can find that)

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3G on OS 3.1.2, 3.1.3 Using RedSn0w (Windows)

    iClarified also has a mac guide (which is pretty much identical)
    You need to jailbreak and hacktivate but you don't need custom boot logos or any other options that redsn0w offers.
