Products not working.

No, I would not recommend this product.

Phones are not working good though both were refurbished.
Refurbished in my understanding means certified like new.
It been charging for 3 days and yet screen showed same picture of the battery on red (no charge). The units are not reliable.

iPhone 3 no longer works with most apps: Go Android instead

No, I would not recommend this product.

The iPhone is fine, it's Apple who has made the apps impossible on this phone. You can't even get the Facebook app for this phone anymore; it requires a higher OS than this phone can take. The music works on it, and it makes a good alarm clock, but I want apps.

You can't do squat with these phones anymore except dial, answer and text. Forget apps, only the old ones with low requirements and poor graphics will work (and they are no-namers for the most part). Forget Facebook, Angry Birds, etc. I think Apple is pushing us to only use the latest greatest, but I realize that its not their goal to make their products affordable/accessible to everyone.

What a shame, my Son had one of these on prepaid ATT last year and the apps worked. Now, it's a pretty paperweight. People are ditching them in droves in our local classifieds. Go Android.

3G is obsolete and hardly usable (buy at least a 3GS instead)

No, I would not recommend this product.

Apple has made sure that this phone is obsolete and hardly usable. They have made sure that none of the newish apps (not even whatsapp) will work on this phone as they don't allow any of the more recent OS upgrades to work on this phone. Apple has done this to make sure customers are forced to upgrade to newer phones.
Need 3GS to any of the newish APPS. Don't purchase used 3G as it is completely obsolete. At time of this writing 3GS is still a good phone and will work with a newish OS and as a result with many of the neiwsh apps. The 3G is however totally obsolete. Stay away from 3G unless all you want is a phone and a basic browser and email machine.

Very negative.

No, I would not recommend this product.

Very diappointed with this vender. Read my review. I have lots of friends that sell on Ebay who would handle this issue differently. I bought this thinking it would work for by child. Not until the very bottom of the listing did they say it would be good for parts. This should have been listed first. Very deceptive. My daughter makes all o her clients happy, no matter what it takes. Sadly this vender basically said tough luck. It really makes me Leary of using Ebay.

Item is a fake and does not work

No, I would not recommend this product.

I decided to buy this product because the vender described it was an apple iphone. Which incidentally are both registered trademarks of Apple Inc.

I was disappointed because it wasn't genuine. I was also disappointed because the product's touch screen has to be clicked up to six times to select a function. It therefore takes forever to get anything done.

The product also came from China/Hong Kong when it clearly states the vender is in the USA. The biggest fault this phone cannot download applications from the itunes store, so there really is no point in having it.

On the positive side the item came fairly quickly in the mail and was nicely packaged. I rank this as poor as the unit is very limited in functions and does not work properly.

SLOW and TERRIBLE phone with HORRIBLE customer service.

No, I would not recommend this product.

Wow! I couldn't be more DISAPPOINTED with this phone (SLOW, poor battery, very few available apps because of old iOS, in-explainable complications, inability to update iOS, no multi-tasking, poor syncing features with computer, terrible interface with contacts, etc.). Furthermore, the customer service of the seller has been terrible.

I have an Android phone and got this iPhone for my wife. I will still with Android and certainly won't ever buy a phone from this seller again.

Battery has very little lifetime, requires charge daily

This Phone was not in mint condition. The battery requires charging each day which includes only 10 minutes talk time. Decription stated 600 talk minutes however this is certainly not the case. I cannot keep a phone which requires charging daily after only 10 minute talk time.

Bad phone, poor battery life, terrible wifi.

No, I would not recommend this product.

Although this was a used phone, the seller indicated everything worked great and the phone had great battery life. This is not the case. The Wi-Fi is horrible, even with GPS and all other features turned off. It is so slow that I cannot use it. It is NOT an issue with our ISP, as my husband has a droid and his phone works great. My previous phone was a droid and it was lightning fast compared to this junky phone. The battery life sucks. I charge it the entire night while I am sleeping, and the battery will be dead by 10am.
I will never purchase Apple again. Android is the way to go.

Apple IPHONE 3: i am disappointed with this product

No, I would not recommend this product.

The Apple iPhone in question has all the features and is easy to use. However, I am very much disappointed about the battery life. It does not keep charge for more than six hours even after I ordered a new replacement battery and got it fixed. Currently I am not using it so it has no value for the money I invested in it.
