Release Date7/11/2008

Background: I got this phone in August 2011 from a friend who works at Apple after he was upgraded. I installed a new battery and unlocked it so I could use it on T-Mobile pay-as-you-go and later upgraded to the $30 a month voice/data plan. This phone worked perfectly with T-Mobile for over a year but my new job now affords me an upgrade so I'm passing on this little marvel.

Functional Condition: Everything works flawlessly on this phone. Wireless, Bluetooth, phone service, all switches, touch screen, USB, speaker, mic, camera, etc...

Cosmetic Condition: The screen is in perfect condition, it does not have a single scratch. Nevertheless, dust somehow seems to have gotten in behind the glass; this is only visible while the screen is off and in a bright light while looking at the phone at a steep angle. This dust is not visible when the screen is on and does not distort the image which is perfectly sharp. The plastic back has small vertical crack that runs up about 1/2" from the dock connector. This must have happened while the phone was in my pocket as this phone has never been dropped. Otherwise, the back has only very minor scratches consistent with age: the phone has always been in a silicone protective case (included). Photos available on request.

OS: Unlocked and jail-broken. I've refreshed the system to a new iOS 4.2.1 installation and it is unlocked to baseband 6.15 so it should work with any compatible carrier. You should be able to sync-up you iTunes, pop in your SIM card and be on your way. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee that the phone will work with your carrier, and I can no longer test with my T-Mobile service so I'm selling the phone "as is".

Included: iPhone 3G, Box and one sync cable.
Not-included: AC charger. Charge it via USB to your computer or get a $5 AC connector on e-bay.
Bonus: I'm sending my fully-functional earbuds so you can hit the ground running, but the wire going into the mic is pealing back so I predict they will break soon. Get some fresh ones on e-bay.

Terms: As is.

This phone has served me well. I hope you enjoy it as I have.
