    Hi everyone. Around a month ago, my 1st gen 16gb touch broke. I was going to buy another 1st generation refurbished off of Apple's online store, but they were out of stock, so I checked around eBay. I found an iPhone 16GB 1st gen for $229 so I bought it, since it was only about $30 more than buying a 16GB 2nd generation iPod touch.

    Since it's already been activated once, I should be able to use all the features other than the phone and the wireless network, correct? Wifi, music, apps, etc would still all work? If not, could I just unlock it and put it on a pay-as-you-go type of plan?

    If i do have to unlock it and put it on a plan, would this sim card work with the iPhone?

    Thanks

    Hi i have a iphone 3g and if I dont have a sim card in it. Work just like a itouch, no problem

    - works fine with wifi

    - pretty much its an ipod with a camera

    the only thing is when you have to restore the phone i think you need a the original sim card (only restored it once with the sim card in havent tried restoring it without a sim card)

    btw this is the 3g i dont know if the 2g is different?
