    ok so i didnt really know where to post this and i know this is an ipod touch related site but just thought id ask:

    heres the scoop, i have an ipod touch looks and works like its brand new, my friend has an iphone but it does look a little worn out on the back. Hes getting the 3G when its released and offered to sell me the iphone for $120 considering jully11th is also my b-day

    anyways i was wonderinnng:

    1. should i buy the iphone?
    2. what should i do with my touch? update it or the iphone to 2.0 nd have the other on 1.1.4jb? or just sell one or the other?

    lastly and most important obviously when he sells me the iphone its not going to have service but if it still has the warranty can i just bring it back to apple because sometimes the iphone really laggs up? will they replace it or what? and sadly i think the 1 year warranty ended in June...

    You could do 1 of 2 things -

    1. Buy the iphone from him....Go to an apple store to see if you can get it replaced (if not, that's OK) THEN, unlock it, jailbreak it, sell it on ebay for MORE than you bought it for, then use the money to buy the iPhone 3G

    or you can put the money towards an iphone 3G for your birthday

    Well thats what i'd do anyway

    OR

    2. Buy the iPhone from him, update it to 2.0 FOR FREE, and keep your iPod touch Jailbroken

    It really comes down to personal preference. You need to weigh the pros and cons of getting the iPhone.

    On one hand, there's internet anywhere, and 2.0 for free (not to mention the whole cellphone part). But there's also the recessed headphone jack, greater thickness, and a monthly bill.

    If you think the pros out weigh the cons, I'd get the iPhone and update to 2.0 while keeping the iPod on 1.1.4 until any possible jailbreaking occurs.

    well heres the thing. I already have a phone so if i eneded up with the iphone from ym friend i wouldnt be using it for service. so would i still have a monthly bill? and would i get 2.0 for free? The main reason im buying it is cuz u really cant beat $120. Im not gonna bother saving for a 3G considering I dont need service. and I heard that if u sell an iphone on ebay thats ok but if its unlocked or jailbroken then its illegal to sell on ebay? can someone clarify this for me?

    thanks for the feedback

    EDIT: BUMP anyone?

    Unlock iPhone, put SIM of old phone in iPhone, use iPhone as main phone, stayed on 1.1.4 jailbroken.

    Upgrade Touch to 2.0 for $9.95 and just have that for epicness.

    What I would do. $9.95 iTunes money isn't THAT much. Plus, then I'd have an iPhone.
