    Resetting the iPhone can be done either through the device settings or via iTunes.
    The setting is in Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings.

    Once the iPhone has powered back on you can set it up as you did when you first bought the phone. You will need to insert a SIM card in order for the setup procedure to take place, however once the initial setup procedure has been completed, the SIM card can be removed.

    Once the device has been reset and setup again, music can now be loaded onto the iPhone either via iTunes, or by logging into to your (or indeed having your friend log into their) Apple ID on the phone and downloading the music from iTunes that way.

    All the features of the phone will work properly without a SIM card inserted, except of course Phone Calls, SMS and Mobile Data, but the phone can still be connected to Wi-Fi, allowing use of all other features
