    I'm with verizon right now, as many of my contacts are but for almost 70 bucks I'm not getting much. I was considering getting an unlocked iphone (not sure whether 2g,3g,or 3gs)I'm a bit confused on how to do this.

    Do i just need to run blackrain?

    Would a 500 minute 39.99 plan with the 9.99 unlimited web work?

    Also, how does Aim match up against unlimited texting?
    Does it cost whoever I text extra even if they have unlimited texting (but no internet) on different carrier?

    thanks

    as for the unlocking, no running blackra1n will not do it. you need to run blackra1n to jailbreak your phone and once you do, you can unlock it via cydia i believe.

    if you have unlimited texting its UNLIMITED texting no matter what. as for unlocking you run blackra1n to jailbreak, then you go into the blackra1n app and download blacksn0w, that would unlock your phone

    Do i need to add a text message plan or is AIM by itself fine?

    Basically, I would have a plan:
    39.99 for voice plan
    10.00 for internet

    -ebay to buy used 2g

    if you have data then you could use textplus for free texting over the internet

    $250 for a 2g is expensive. I boutght my 3g (no scratches on the back or the screen and nothings wrong with it. It looks brand new, infact it is brand new because she bought it from apple but didn't know she had to pay for data plan so she canceled the contract after 15 days) for $150 but it was from a friend at work.

    searching ebay

    a 99% seller has a 3g iphone listed at 108. It is unlocked and jailbroken already, though I would have done it myself (22hrs left in bidding)

    but, he also has 3 other iphone listings...im thinking scam?

    I'd prefer finding a regular one, as i'm still in between switching to tmobile or att-Northern NJ area

    I doubt its a scam but 22 hours is a long time and by the end the price would be 250+. So the best way to get one is craigslist. Just search for ones in your area and then contact the seller. That way you can check if anything is wrong with the phone.
