I am wanting a device that I can load up with podcasts, audio books and a pedometer app that I can carry in my pocket.
I currently have an old phone that I use for phone purposes but it is old and slow and hasn't got the memory capacity to store what I want. I don't want to upgrade my phone at this stage.
I have noticed that prepaid phones are available very cheaply. I assume this is because you pay for the phone over time by being locked into purchasing monthly prepaid plans.
BUT, if I was to purchase a prepaid phone with wifi capability, would it continue to work on wifi once the first monthly prepaid plan ran out?
In other words, could I install apps through wifi, download books etc and use the downloaded content when away from wifi coverage? Or would the phone not work if there was no current sim plan in place?
Hope this makes sense. Thanks

Yes, this was me. Used my iPhone with only wifi access for a couple of months.
Then got a data sim only on my family plan eventually.
I also have used a new phone for a few days in wifi only whilst taking a few days to copy everything over.
