    I have this one shop selling a new iPhone 3GS 16GB for around $500. It's brand new unopened box.

    While that my dad has a friend that is selling a iPhone 3GS 16GB selling to me for $100. I don't know the condition for this one yet.

    So witch one would you choose? Btw, don't tell me to buy a iPhone 4

    Get the second hand one. If the screen is cracked or the back is scratched badly just take it to a shop and they can replace them for under $100.

    I thought due to the release of the Iphone 4 that the prices would have been severely dropped but $500 still seems pretty high you ought ta just go second hand mate and like Aestysu said, replacing broken parts will cost less.

    I would have died to have that insurance about 3 days ago, ever watched your iPhone fall into the porta john?

    That 16gb seams like a steal though. All depends on your needs. I filled my 3GS to the brim and it was 32gbs. If you can survive with just 16gb so be it because it's a way better deal anyways.

    I survived on 8GB so 16GB so good enough. I wish i had insurance a month ago. Ever seen a guy go into your gym locker and take your iPhone?

    How can someone cover lost/stolen property? Wouldn't someone just be able to go and say their iPhone got stolen and get a second one free?
