Default Unlock to use like an iTouch

I have someone that wants to buy my Vortex. All he wants to do is use it as a mp3 player, and to use the wifi, he does not want to use it as a phone. Is there a way to unlock the phone to do this?

I have already done a factory reset on the phone...

I plan on passing mine on to someone for the same purpose. It won't just let you use it without service? What happens?

When you do a factory reset the phone restarts to the activation screen and there is no way around it. I called Verizon and they were very accomodating and fixed it for me to use as just a PC (pocket computer).

I am assuming that it can be changed back if someone wanted to use it as a phone again

Yeah, when you're at the reset screen where it asks for your language, press volume up, volume down, back button, search. I've had to do that a lot just because the setup won't work since I'm rooted.
