    Well i sold my 8gb first gen touch.
    I am in between a 3g iphone for 200 bucks or a 8gb ipod touch
    If i buy the 3g iphone for 200 bucks is that with a contract, or is it like the last gen iphone where you could buy it, and jailbreak it and use it as a ipod.
    For example
    Could i buy the 3g at best buy
    Bring it home, put it in dfu mode, jailbreak it so i use it as a ipod?

    You will have to get a contract with the 3g. Unlocking is not an option yet.

    An iPhone 3G for $200 is subsidized due to the contract. You can't unlock.

    EDIT: jpga beat me to it.

    i would say get the ipod touch, unles you can afford the contract's prices.
    you cannot buy an iphone 3G without a contract in most places.

    a 3g iphone will cost you, after 2 years, $2000, or you can't use it at all. think about it.
    get the ipod.

    I'm waiting for the iPhone 4G (Generation).

    Because if I buy the 3G a new one will be out and I'll be sad.

    So i'm sticking to the old iPhone for now

    do like me. I have a tilt and 2g touch. The tilt can be used as a wireless access point for the touch when wifi is not an option

    I have the media net unlim package for 24.95. Not a bad price huh ?
