Need a sim card but don't want plan or prepaid. Possible?

Got an iPhone 5. Need to buy a nano sim card in order to activate it but dont want any plan at the moment (want to use it wifi). Can I get a sim card without getting a plan?

You don't need a sim card if you use your device with wifi connection only. You need a sim card if you want to use it with mobile network to make/receive calls or send/receive texts service.
Unfortunately you DO need a SIM card to set up your iPhone 5... But I found out through Apple that you can either buy one from any provider (even if you don't plan to get their service) or borrow one from a friend for the time of the set up (takes 30 seconds...).
