Use an iPhone as an iPod?

We've upgraded our iPhones to newer versions and we have an older iPhone-3. I've done the erase and reset back to day one out of the box. I was going to use it as an iPod. But upon restart after reset the only option is to insert a SIM card to activate the phone. If I slide the unlock, Emergency phone call is all that is offered. If I Plug it in with iTunes all I get is "We're sorry but we're unable to continue with your activation at this time. Please try again later or contact customer care".
Is this phone now a paperweight or is there some way to use it as an iPod?
