Upgrading to One-X. Can someone else use my Captivate without setting up a data plan?

Subject pretty much says it all. I'm eligible for an upgrade as of a few weeks ago. I'm upgrading to the One-X. If someone else on my Family Plan who currently has a dumb phone pops their SIM in my Captivate, will it work with no data plan? Or will one get added automatically? We have WiFi for use at home.

 

Thanks,

the captivate is a smartphone, it will require a data plan no matter what. If one is not added by you it will be automaticly added.

So the next question is, will it work fine without a SIM except for the Phone and Text Messaging? Can my son still play the games on it, as long as we have Wifi for those games that require internet access?

If you never put a SIM card in it it'll be fine.
