I kind of did the same when I was travelling Asia. Instead of having a phone without a SIM card, I had an iPod Touch. Like the couple below, I was dependent on Wifi networks, which however could be found anywhere. For phone calls I either used Viber or an app called Yuilop at this time, now Upptalk.
