Am I able to purchase an unlocked smart phone from Amazon to just use without the phone/data services?
I heard you still need a SIM card to activate it though,
so would it be smarter to just buy an iPod Touch 5G or purchase a potentially cheaper smartphone.

I actually own the moto g and it worked fine without a SIM card(although I have to say that I did not do much before buing a SIM)

Unless you have a need for a faster device, an ipod touch will do you just fine. Otherwise, most phones should work perfectly fine as is without a SIM card inserted. I ran my iphone 5s without a SIM for a week or two waiting for it to ship to me.
