    I have a 3GS (mine was new though). It's my first iPhone and I think it's great. Refurbished means someone bought it new and either returned it for a refund or replacement. If they got a replacement because the phone was defective, they (not sure who exactly) fix the phone and resell it at a discount. Refurbished products usually go through more rigorous testing than new ones. I'd rather buy something refurbished than second-hand.

    Somewhere...like on the apple site itself it even tells you what they do to make a phone refurbished...from memory it includes new battery, replace cover and I think even screen and they update/restore the FW so its exactly like a new phone pretty much.
