- Can a sim-less iPhone be used as an iPod?
Just picked up a “new to us” car and it has iPod connectivity – via a very short lead in the glove compartment. So instead of using my phone as the iPod (as this will restrict me making and taking calls, posting on STW, Facebooking and texting on those boring motorway drives) 🙂 I’d rather just leave something in there with most of my music stored on it. I have a fairly bashed around 16GB iPhone 3GS which is worth £40 if I send it to mazuma mobile etc. and thought it might be ideal to use as music storage. Before I go charging it up, will there be any problems using this as an iPod? I assume it’s the same as using it in airplane mode, no?Posted 4 years agoMilitant_bikerMember
I use an original iPhone as an iPod for the car. Yes, it complains it has no SIM, but only once per use, and it gets wifi from the the house to sync if it needs to. Works fine, have jailbroken it to run Spotify on the old iOS.
Was cheaper than replacing my iPod nano when it died.Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
I use my old iPhone 4 as an iPod, but I put a 3 PAYG sim in it, and I use it with Shazam, so I can tag new songs on the radio and telly, then download them straight onto the phone, and I use it as my satnav in the car, with CoPilot Live.Posted 4 years ago
3 has unlimited data on the PAYG, so I don’t get hit for charges downloading over the network. It won’t allow tethering, though.
