iPhone(R) 3G 8GB for AT&T
Make sure you check with your carrier before purchasing an iPhone. I have verizon and bought this phone for my son. After trying to self activate I was prompted to call Verizon CS. I was informed that Verizon does not support any iPhones under the 4s so now I have a iPod insted of an iPhone. Will contact game stop to see If I can swap for a newer version but will probably have to pay significantly more for what I want. Old addage "if it seems too good to be true than it more than likely it is".
Skip this phone, pay a little extra for the 3GS
I was very happy to find an iphone used so cheap. Unfortunately the phone only worked for about a day and a half before going to a blank white screen. Phone could not be restored and every time I plugged it in it would try to boot and return to a pixelated screen. Aside from the phone dying, I would also suggest spending the extra $$ and buying the 3GS. The problem with the 3G is that it can only be updated to the 4.2.1 iOS and all the current apps run on 5.0 or higher, so essentially you can only use the phone to talk and text... no apps. I've returned this phone and am getting the 3GS this afternoon. I will review.
It's Great If You Just Want A Basic Phone
If you only are going to use this for a phone, go for it, but if you were planning on using any apps at all, even just Facebook, do not purchase this phone. Get at least the 3GS. I wish I would have. Now I have to go through the hassle of returning it and paying a couple of hundred dollars more. I am not tech savvy and should have understood this before buying. But, at least I have learning something. :o)
Phone broke 2 weeks after 30 day return policy
I was happy to be able to get an iphone at so low a cost and was happy for a month, 2 weeks after the 30 day return policy the LCD screen has pooped the bed, it is completlty white, after doing so research on the issue hoping that maybe i could restore it or something, it seems its a common fault in the Iphone 3gs, the LCD screen connector inside the phone ether malfunctions or breaks altogether. I shouldnt have to be looking for a new phone a month and a half after buying this one. I WILL NEVER BUY A PRE-OWNED ITEM FROM GAMESTOP AGAIN, Unless of course its a game.....Im so mad they are luck they are the only place to get pre-owned games now a days, or i would not do any business with them ever again...
Spend the extra money and get a better version!
The phone itself looks great but pretty much is worthless beyond that unless all you do is call and text. I use apps and had no idea that when I bought this phone and also was not told when I asked that I would not be able to download a single app. I have now read up on the 3g and they are not even supported by the apple system anymore and soon the 3gs will be the same way. I think I will return this for more updated of a model so I can actually use it for what I need and do not feel like I downgraded. This phone was in great condition and can connect to wifi and text and make calls. Thats it though so beware thinking you will even be able to get a facebook or you tube app. Not Happening!
dont get 3g
the phone was great till apple droped the phone. apple no longer will alow apps to be downloaded to the iphone 3g. it still functions for calling and text but will not use apps.
Go for the 3gs or iphone 4 instead
I got this phone from gamestop earlier this year and I wish I had got the 3gs instead. This thing was so slow, especially if you update it. I would suggest jailbreaking it and keeping it on 3.1.3 firmware if you want it to be fast. Otherwise, it's gonna be extremely laggy. Besides those issues, I didn't like having to be tied down to apple or even cydia for that matter. I thought using cydia was a headache and apple requires updates for most of their apps. At least with android I don't have to update and I can get apps from multiple locations and even free with a little work. This was a failed experiment but I guess it's my fault for getting a really old phone. The phone itself was in good shape but the experience was frustrating. I hear that apple makes things simpler verses other OS so maybe I'm just a geek and it's too simple, idunno. Can't recommend the 3g so go for a newer one if you like apple products.
I would like this device because it has great apps and i am a memeber of apple inc with great apps. I love iphones they are amazing with the technology.
I got this phone and it was flawless. I wanted an iphone but they were to expensive at att, then I found gamestop! The phone was perfect just with a little crack on the back but everything was great. I highly recommend if you dont want to pay big $$$$$$$ for an iPhone from att.
I love this phone alot. GREAT condition, barely no scratches. I recommend this phone for anyone that likes gophone fo At&t or a plan either way its a really good phone. :)
