Activating a reset iPhone in the UK without a SIm...?

UK specific iPhone/SIM question: I need to activate my old iPhone 3GS 16gB, preferably without my own SIM. I am giving it to my nephew as a games device, not to use as a phone. I have reset and now it insists on a SIM.
1. are there workarounds so I don't have to buy a SIM, activate it then throw SIM away?
2 This was my O2 UK phone [on a company contract], so if you know anything about the iPhone elsewhere, it probably won't apply.
3. If the answer to the above is 'jailbreak it', can I use iTunes after?
4. if the answer is 'use your old SIM just for activation', will this link it to iTunes in some way? Bear in mind, I still use my SIM in my newer phone [actually purchased more recently, but an 8gB 3GS in reality. Yes, I know...]
