    What would be better? Getting a new 3rd gen. 8GB iPod Touch or getting a secondhand 1st Gen. iPhone 8GB? I want the 1st gen. iPhone because I want to be able to use the phone as a phone and access wifi hotspots without paying for AT&T's data plan. Or should I just stick with the touch? The two devices are about the same. Although the other can just make calls.

    Well, you'll have to unlock the iPhone, and you'll have to use a SIM card for another network, so you will be paying money either way. You know that, right?

    Yes, I know I have to unlock, but I don't need another carrier. I already use AT&T and have a SIM from them. Unlocking isn't that hard either, it just takes some time. I currently use a Blackberry, but ever since AT&T threw in new rules regarding all smartphones need data plans I decided I might as well get the old iPhone and use it as a phone and a Touch.

    Yeah lol, but I don't really need the camera. I'd rather use the 2G iPhone as a phone and iPod Touch as well.
