Only wish to use my new phone via WiFi for Google searches until my current phone's battery dies

Can I do that without the constant interruption of the "Activate Now" notifications? Or do I just have to return the phone and say goodbye to ever being a future Boost customer?

Hi. By purchasing a Boost Mobile handset, you agree to activate the handset on a current Boost Mobile plan within 60 days of your purchase date. The message that you’re receiving on your handset is a reminder to activate your phone. Once you activate, the message will no longer appear on your handset.

Our terms and conditions require activation on a Boost Mobile plan within 60 days of the purchase date. If you do not activate, you will continue to receive the daily activation messages on your handset until you activate it on a Boost Mobile Plan. If you do not intend to activate on a Boost Mobile plan AND you are still within the Return Policy window, you can return your handset back to the place of purchase for a refund. If you chose to activate on your handset at a later date, please visit Boostmobile.com.

And for how long do I have to keep it on a plan before I deactivate and am no longer going to see that message if say for instance I wish to give it to my 5 year old granddaughter without a plan to watch kids videos on it via wi-fi in my son's home. Or must it always be active and can never be unlocked from Boost? 

If so, sort of sounds like a contract to me.
