Disable iPhone Cell Antennae
Is there any way to make my iPhone 5 like a simple iPod touch? I'd like to disable all cellphone functionality but keep the wifi.
No jailbreak if possible.
I have an iPhone 5 running iOS 6.

You can enable "Airplane Mode" and then turn on Wi-Fi.
For phones that use a GSM sim card (even if they are on CDMA networks), if you remove the SIM card, you disable the cellular radio. Calls and cellular data stop flowing in this case.
The most precise manner is in the settings app:
Settings > General > Cellular > Cellular Data -> OFF
