You need to have incomming calls goto straight to call answer.
There is also an option to disable data. Not sure exactly where it is as I use a widget but its in settings somewhere.

And then just enable Wi-Fi.

I just tried this: take the sim card out and hey presto there you go.. A bit extreme though, eh?

Why so complicated? Just turn on flightmode, then turn on wifi.
You will now have flightmode with wifi

I'm in flight mode 99% of the time (no I'm not a pilot)

So?

That's what is wanted in the OP. No phone, no data, just wifi.
