Is there anything I can/should do to lock down the cellular connectivity of the phone? Or is it incapable of making calls since Sprint activated my wife's same phone number on a new phone?

if it does not have an active carrier supporting it.. then it can not make calls. so it is pretty safe.

it can download skype (and other VOIP apps) applications.. and make calls on the data from your home wifi.

also they can make purchases from the Play Store...
