will iPhone5 work like an iPod Touch even without a SIM card?

The iPhone5 will not do anything of what the iPod Touch does without registering with a NanoSIM card at a mobile phone company first.

Suppose the contract runs out and is not renewed. Will the iPhone5 go on working like an iPod Touch even without a current SIM card? E.g. downloading apps updates over WiFi?

    After waiting for my NanoSIM card a few days I have activated the mobile phone connection at the mobile phone provider's web site as instructed. Taking the SIM card out again the iPhone5 was still operative like an iPod Touch.
