    Before I buy one and possibly spend too much money, what is the average price one of a 8gb 3G iPhone?

    Also, has anyone here bought an iPhone from eBay? What was your experience like?

    I plan to Jailbreak it and use it with T-Mobile.

    Another question, I have unlimited texting with T-Mobile. Will that work on the iPhone too without getting charged more or what?

    I've been searching the forums but can't seem to find the answer.

    If you decide to purchase the iPhone on ebay and unlock it, let us know how it turns out.
    Wish you the best. Cheers.

    So far Craigslist has better deals, but they sell very fast. I'll be checking it daily.

    I've bought one on craigslist for 400 in box. Just watch for deals but DONT GET SCAMMED!!! Check for any pink inside the headphone jack (sign of water exposure). Also make sure the screen is working perfectly. Luckily with craigslist you can check it out before you purchase plus you can get a better deal. My friend bought one on eBay for I believe 600 or 700 that was in box so you see the difference. Just make sure you don't get ripped!

    The iPhone will work properly with all your T-Mobile (except 3G data). I have unlimited text + 5.99/month data and it works fine. No extra charge or anything.
