The Apple Store Genius Bar solved my problems, as I explained in my own answer. Sorry for the frustration!

comment Unsure of how to achieve my usage scenario with a repurposed iPhone
When I put in the SIM card, the iPhone says "No Service". When I connect to a known-good WiFi, on the phone, then I get the "Try again later" message no matter what I do. I've done a couple of safe-mode resets on the iPhone and reinstallations through iTunes, to no avail.

comment Unsure of how to achieve my usage scenario with a repurposed iPhone
The phone is provisioned for Sprint and locked. I bought it from a commercial reseller as used, but as near as I can tell, it is in fact brand-new and has never been used before. I got a never-before-used SIM card from a Sprint store, right out of the sealed packaging. When I brought it home to try it, I could not get it to work. In the morning I'm going to an Apple Store Genius Bar to see if they can tell me anything.

comment How to create diacritical characters with the Dvorak keyboard on Mac?
That method is useful on occasion, but it is much too slow if you are typing entirely in a language that uses a lot of diacriticals. Learning to use the "dead keys" is much faster.

comment Unsure of how to achieve my usage scenario with a repurposed iPhone
So are you saying that any SIM card from the mobile provider that the phone is locked to would work to activate an iPhone as an iPod touch--that it does not have to be a SIM card taken from an iPhone belonging to someone who already has that iPhone registered for mobile service from that provider? Honestly, I have zero experience with this and I just don't understand the parameters.

@bmike, I'm afraid I just don't understand the process here, never having tried this. Please elaborate.
