    I Have Some iPhone 3G Questions

    I'm thinking about getting an iPhone 3G for Christmas, but I don't want to pay $70 a month.


    1. How much is the cancelation fee, and what is the difference between canceling before or after 30 days?
    2. If I buy a 3G on eBay and it is "unlockable" , does that mean it was already canceled and I just have to put a pay as you go SIM card in it?
    3. Even with a prepaid data card, will it perform just as well as it would with the real iPhone plan?
    4. What would it all add up to, if I bought an 8gb iPhone, canceled the contract, and used a PAYG SIM card? (not including minutes/data yet)
    5. How much do prepaid minutes and data cost?

    Thank you if you answer these questions.

    I'm in the US by the way.

    First of all; don't write "please respond". It will not increase your chances of getting an answer.
    Second; which country are you in? Otherwise noone has a clue on how to tell you how much the cancellation fee is.

    If you find one on eBay that says "Unlockable" it doesn not mean it's unlocked. It means it CAN be unlocked in the future if an unlock is released by the dev team. Some countries sell them unlocked, so if you want an unlocked one your best bet is one from Italy or Greece.

    1) $175
    2) If it isn't canceled, they will be billed

    3) I'm pretty sure
    4) $199 + $175 + $150 (I believe) = $524
    5) Data is $20 for 30 Days of unlimited (5GB) access. Not sure about minutes

    So a PAYG SIM card doesn't come with a PAYG phone?

    It will, if you buy the phone, yes. The 150 dollar thing also adds like 125 dollars of credit to the account
