    It's time for me to move on from my 1st gen touch. I was wondering, seeing as my phone has now officially broken since i snapped it in half, if i should just get the 1st gen iphone instead of the new ipod touch. For starters, i only want the new touch because of the speakers and buttons (which are on the 1st gen iPhone). I also don't have a phone.

    I just wanna know a few things:

    - Which shall i get?

    - If iPhone, can apple brick it if you unlock with ziphone and which version of ziphone would you use?

    - Thats about it. Anything else?

    Cheers

    i would get the iphone 1st gen and no apple can not brick it. i would use firmware 2.1 or 2.0.2 and use winpwn or pwnage to jailbreak and unlock

    if you need a phone then go for the 1st gen iphone, it can be unlocked,activated and jailbroken, the 2nd gen touch cant be jailbroken as of yet, and the 2nd gen iphone cant be unlocked to other networks as for what program to go for id use winpwn or quickpwn and stay away from ziphone, last time i used the it bricked my ipod, took me a fair few hours of sweraring and button pushing to get it working again

    thats a hard choice if youre phoneless you should get an iphone because your not really missing out on the 2g because they have similiar features excluding camera and phone capabilities id say phone but thats a hard choice

    i'm kind of swayed towards this for a number of reasons. Is there a small good flip phone with a good camera?

    I managed to buy the iPhone 1G for only £100, and I'd say get that.
    If you've always got your phone on you then you're always going to have your ipod too.

    And I don't really see how 'as a phone the iphone isn't that great.'
    Works fine for me. And I'm on PAYG
