perfect older model

Makes and receives calls/texts just fine. Camera has zooming benefit but lacks auto-focus. Limited in software updates and apps but those features are overrated anyway. Because it's considered antiquated, it's usually available for a bargain. Some people consider the iPhone 3 a dinosaur but it's an awesome phone if your needs are simple.Read full review...

Great product for its price. (reviews pluses and minuses)

Positive: nice prise, easy to use interface, great screen, is excellent design, easy to install programs with appstore (there are plus and minus to use iTunes), work fine with mail, online services, the technology push is implemented perfectly, easy to use player, a lot of useful programs (mostly online services).
Negative: A little annoying slow response phone (3GS nicer in this regard), very quickly pollute the screen, small battery life especially when using WiFi, quiet speaker when playing melodies (when talking microphone and speakers work fine), it is impossible to put a call melody more than 30 seconds, it is not possible to use the phone as a flash (no special tools and progamma itunes transferred to a PC).
Conclusion: at the current price I am willing to accept the shortcomings phone, consider buying it now, right decision, but would recommend to all to acquire the model 3GS (16/32 Gb). It costs a bit more expensive, but it will save your nerves. Although in everyday use 3G is inferior.
Recommendation: For the phone iOS ideal for tablet I definitely would have chosen Android. Mobile needs a simple interface and easy operation with one hand, compatibility with other devices is not as important. Definitely 3/4/G/GS/S best in this segment(imho). I recomend to you not to install iOS 5 or later on 3G, it will work slowly, this phone can't work in multitasking mode on iOS 5... as 3GS(imho)

Best phone out there with everything you need.

I love the iPhone. I had one before. It's the best phone out there. It has everything you need: Phone, texting, voicemail, internet, calender, maps, email, ipod, camera, facebook, games, apps for pretty much everything! It's pretty easy to use, too. The only thing that's difficult is setting up your email the first time, but if you search online for the settings, it's not too bad. I get them unlocked because I am on T-Mobile, but it's nice because you can also customize it too, changing the wallpaper, icons, and slider.Read full review...


3G is obsolete and hardly usable (buy at least a 3GS instead)

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.

My 1st iphone, pretty well pleased!

This is my first iphone. I am generally well pleased with it. Like with anything there are things I wish it had or that it would do differently. I love that it can handle my music my contacts calendars all in one device. It came with alot of gadgets to use it as i exercise while I am in the car and attachments for my belt or waist. Wish the battery lasted longer. And to top it off i am using it on the straight talk network $48.91 a month unlimited everything!Read full review...


It is good, but not excellent

Aside from the flaws of a used iphone that usually comes(scratches on glass, etc) the 4.2.1 iOS is of course, is slow. The GPS option is a rather nice function, but it is unreliable as you could barely get the reception, but it is good enough to see where the heck you are if you get lost.

Since my iphone is jailbroken and unlocked phone, I am able to use different carriers than just AT&T, making switches of sim card if needed. This is rather standard, but it is also at least four times expensive without a contract.

Also, besides the fact that this is also an out-dated iphone, the touch screen is rather superior than most touchscreen smartphones I had experienced.

Now, since it doesn't come with something like an iphone finder, if i lose it, i lose a great deal of investment. So I have to make sure i won't lose it.

The phone is widely commercialized and famous so there are a tons of paid and free apps.

I have to say, Apple(the company) is ingenious with its business strategies.

If I update iTunes(but i don't, only the essential drivers), the jailbroken will fail and who knows what other setbacks might occur. The iphone itself cannot connect directly with a USB and needs special programs to do so. If you're not tech savvy enough to follow online instruction guides, you won't be able to put your mp3/mp4 into your iphone. I was rather caught off guard with that perspective.

It is unfortunate that the mp4 formatted videos for psp could not be played as it is a different codec. I hope that a free app(maybe it is already available) will eventually come out so I could use my psp formats.

So yes, I really really hate apple for these things, just to keep their expensive iphones in demand as they really try to fight(succeeding for a few days or weeks before failing agian, but it is enough) agianst these jailbroken/unlock in their own way.
