Very good price.

It's good because the price was great and i like that it works with my prepaid plan. It's nice and lightweight. There's 2 little spots on the screen but it's not a big deal. I like it over all.

Best investment you can make.

When it comes to smartphones, the applications make or break the phone. Apple has the best applications in the smartphone market to date. While I'm writing this review, the 5S and 5C have already been out for 7 months. This phone is still an excellent investment for someone who loves smartphones but hates having to be tied down to a contract. What do you have to lose? A $50 investment gives you a phone that can do everything under the sun. I'd only advise against this phone if your so narcissistic and crave taking selfies with front facing cameras. This phone doesn't have one.Read full review...


i phone is easy to use

its for my wife who has never had a smart phone...she seem to be ablre to pick the use up well and shes not that great on the computer.


Don't know why, but it won't charge up anymore and I had to buy a new phone

I tried a couple less expensive music playing devices and they were not in the same ballpark as an iPhone for quality, ease of use and features. Also love watching old TV shows that I transfer from my DVD collection onto this unit. Pandora is an excellent radio station that you customize to only play whatever mix of music that you choose. Oh, along with taking excellent photos and video, this thing also is a phone which I only yesterday activated. I was using it so much in the aforementioned ways that I finally decided, might as well have the phone turned on. While the newer versions are good for those who must be on the cutting edge of todays tech stuff, this older version suits an old guy like me just fine and is more affordable. On the neg side, I never did figure out how to use iTunes so I found a free online software that transfers songs and videos etc from my pc to the iPhone and it works ok if you nurse it along. It's called Imtoo Phone Transfer. I've joined the 21st century and never go anywhere without this thing. Update, a few weeks ago (today is 3/2/14) it suddenly would not charge any longer. It could be the car charger I plugged into caused it or it just was time to die, I don't know but the on line suggestions like rebooting it or cleaning the charge port did not work. Very sad. Had to buy a new phone. The guy at the AT&T store was not surprised that it died because of its age.Read full review...


decent phone for the cost, does everything you need without paying $600

I know it isn't the latest version of apple i phones, but it is a good serviceable phone, does everything I need done, I don't need to have the latest and greatest, heck I just changed from a phone phone to a smart phone. I do enjoy being able to check email while on the go, but that is really the only other thing I have used much. I did watch a tv show on netflix while waiting for daughter to finish dance class.Read full review...


Iphone 3GS still very functional, and a great bang for your buck.

Sure, it is an older iPhone, BUT, it still has an amazing number of features for the price. Instead of spending 5-600 for a 5, or 3-400 for a 4S, you can't beat paying around a hundred bucks and getting most of what apple offers. Sure, there are some apps and games that can't run on the 3GS... but you still have thousands and thousands of apps to choose from that run GrEaT. Also, battery life is better than 4S or 5, especially if you put an aftermarket extended life battery in it! (Easy job, did it in 20 minutes, and that was with never before opening up one of these phones.)
I highly recommend this phone if you want to get your moneys worth from a phone.
LOL, to tell you how good it is, both my wife and my TEENAGER love it!

Overall it is an excellent phone, can't go wrong with iphones.

I bought this model because it is way cheaper than the 4's or the 5, and it has basically the same functions and features as the ones mentioned. I really like the weight, it feels solid and very well made, I love the keyboard because typing is a breeze!
The only three things I would critize are: the battery charge is very short, a day or two and it is gone. Also the home button is hard to push - as opposed to other iphones - this might be because this phone I got is refurbished. Itunes for me is a headache, it is not intuitive, I prefer windows media player to transfer music.

Durable,Takes excellent pictures,Less risk to accidental body selfie.

Since I started to have an apple iphones my most favorite is Iphone 3GS.
With my hard plastic cover on it,I had dropped on the cement floor perhaps 10 times and it didn't break-excellent durability. I can't complain of taking easy prominent pictures whether in the sun or in the dark and they pictures are seem to be as it appears within your actual eye vision.-Excellent for taking pictures. Most of gadgets are almost identical to other iphones except it has a compass.
While other individuals prefer to have new better ones, in my fingertips as long as I have my 3GS and I know quite well how to use and for now in my opinion it is irreplaceable.

Smooth, reliable, good value for the money

iPhone 3GS is rather old history, nevertheless it's a smartphone very useful. Not as fast as modern phones, the small amount of RAM would be the greater disadvantage.

It serves well and the interface is smooth, stable and reliable.
GPS is great. Bluetooth to the car. Great software. Can be updated to iOS 5 and 6.

iTunes. Small RAM. No SD card (cannot increase storage). No bluetooth with other devices.
Battery finishes soon (as most smartphones).

Good phone for less than 120 USD.
