Default iPhone peoples...

would it be worth it to purchase a iPhone 3G if I could get it for $125, no contract, and put the SIM card from my current phone into it?

That seems really high for a 3G. Mine died awhile back and my husband just upgraded his because it was so painfully slow.

Yeah, I got my 3GS in back in February for $50...You could probably get a 4 for something close to that price.

iPhones have their own type of SIM. You can't swap back and forth between other brands of phones regardless of whether it's the same carrier or not.

And I paid $200 for my iPhone 4 right when they came out. I could've gotten an iPhone 3 for $50 back then. (ATT/Cingular online)

I wouldn't pay $125 at all.

I have an old 3G. That price for a 3GS is a bit high IMO too.

When I had T-Mobile, I took my SIM card out of my then current Samsung phone, put it in an iPhone 3G, and used it. If she has AT&T or T-Mobile, she should be fine.

I have a Samsung, but it's with Koodo/Telus... not sure if it'd work or not.

I can't afford to get one on a contract, so I was looking for used ones that are already paid completely.

It should still work. Adam said it'll need to be jailbroken and then unlocked, though.

That's what I'd been able to gather off the internet so far. I'm just not finding any iPhones for less than $125ish. Even down to as "old" as the 3G.

If you really really want an iPhone, there's a 3G laying around here somewhere that Adam just said he'd part with for $50.
