Default Disabling the radio/SIM but not the wifi

Need to disable the sim so the i717 no longer acts as a cell phone so I can give it to my daughter (who is 6). Dont need her to start calling and texting just yet and no longer use the i717 since I have a Nexus 5 now. Just wondering if there was a way of disabling it or the no sim card warning permently.

Or put in an old non active sim card.

Put it on Airplane mode and then you can just turn on the Wifi or bluetooth too if you want.

Also if you reboot with airplane mode on the missing Sim card error won't show up
