    Welcome to the forum. Should be able to use it for whatever you want with just wifi. You can even access the Play Store on wifi with no sim card.

    I agree with ggrant, it should work over WiFi only to do what you want. As long as modern music apps are compatible, you should have no issues. I use an old Moto X as my yard work / lawn mowing phone with no sim card. I just download the music I want using YT Music while connected to WiFi and then go do yard work with the phone totally offline.

    You are welcome. And welcome to the Forum. Enjoy your new music player. The Droid 2 is one of the few Moto Droid branded phones I never owned. I owned almost every other Droid branded phone that Moto made over the years. Brings back memories.
