    Recently I upgraded my iPod touch 3G to 4.0 and absoluely despise it! Since I had no knowledge of the SHSH blobs I cannot downgrade so am choosing to sell it. I have been contemplating what ipod to buy and have decided on the iphone 3g because it doesn't have any shsh stuff, it has the same specs as ipod touch 2g and is a similar price, i can also use it as a phone and it's quite a bit cheaper than newer iphones. I have a few questions about buying one, does it make any difference what firmware the iphone is on when i get it (4.0 for example)? Does it matter if i get an unlocked one, how can you unlock if it is unlocked and will i be able to use virgin? Also what should i jailbreak with and should i do it before or after if i'm unlocking?
    Thanks in advance, sorry if this is noobish and also sorry for the large amount of questions

    Then if you unlock it you can use it on any network you want as long as it's GSM (have sim cards)
