    I really need to hear everyone's opinion on this.


    Anyway I want to know should I buy the iPhone 3G. Simple question right? Wrong.​

    First of all, I do not plan to use the iPhone 3G with AT&T. I plan to use it with a pre-paid version of T-Mobile. This is my first question. Will the iPhone 3G work with that sim card?

    Second of all, I might use it with my Memorex Mi2032 Dock. Will it fit?

    Third of all, in order to buy this iPhone 3G, I want to sell my iPod touch 8 Gig with it's incase slider case. There are 2 questions involved in this:

    1. What is the best place to sell this for free and what do I say to maximize my earnings from this sale (P.S. - The condition of both items are quite new)

    2. Can I transfer my APP (Apple Protection Plan) from the iPod touch to the iPhone 3G I will purchase?

    i'm pretty sure that the 3G isn't able to be unlocked right now. i've also heard that not only does T-mo's 3G kinda suck, it won't play nice with the iPhone for whatever reason. but, i don't think they made any changes to the sim card per se so it might work. honestly, imo, just go with att. there rates are fine, there coverage is good, i don't really see why people even bother with unlocking other than the ETF. but, you definitely save yourself a lot of headaches by going "legit"

    i'd say craigslist is the best place to sell for your ipod for free.

    when i upgraded from the 1st gen iphone to the 3G, they mentioned transfering applecare. but i don't think it will be the same with the touch since they are different devices.

    not sure what the dock you reference is.

    The thing is, I do not care about the "3G". All I want is something pre-paid.

    Craigslist for selling it. I'd say get the old iPhone. Thats what I'm gonna do, but if you want the 3G its like 300$ more.
    I don' think you can transfer your APP

    3G isn't unlocked yet.

    It should fit in the dock...You should probably email them first.
  7. I dont think 3G'll be unlocked.

    I got lucky to trade my iPod and $100 for a 2G last week.
