    my friend is offering me his iPhone 3GS for $150 US but i'm not sure if i should wait for the next gen iPod touch. What do you think i should do.

    *im on a Verizon contract so i cant actually use the phone parts of the 3GS

    I thought untrsn0w unlocks 3GS for use with other carriers. Any how I wouldn't do it, get a new iPhone or wait till next gen iPod touch.

    But $150 is a pretty good price and i cant get a new iPhone its like $700 unlocked.

    Verizon doesn't use sim cards so even if its unlocked i couldn't use it

    Yes they do my brother has a storm and those use sim cards. Upgrade your plan ask for sim card. Yea but when new iPod is out it will be faster than 3GS and wont be much more than that phone.

    It will, it's very likely to be based on the iPhone 4 with 512mb of ram. But I would get the iPhone. You can do quite a bit more on it than the iPod Can do.

    I hope they get the same ram and a gyroscope. i don't to be behind on the latest gear but this seems like a really good deal.

    and the sim card doesent actually get u service in the US. Im pretty sure Verizon only broadcasts CDMA in the US and the card is for if u leave the US.
