    There's something you should be aware of though.

    You can get an iPod touch 60GB or whatever (in other words, a ton more music space), for the same price as that phone.

    iPod touches can be jailbroken and pretty much work like iPhones, just without the phone part.

    If you're looking at a store ad and they say "iPhone for $99", that's the iPhone 3G and it's $99 only if you sign up for a three-year contract. If you want an iPhone to use just as an iPod, you'll have to buy one used. Brand new at retail without a contract, iPhones cost $700 and up. You'd spend far less buying a brand new iPod Touch.

    Just look for a used iPhone or iPod Touch and try to find a good deal. I seriously doubt you'd find somebody selling a used iPhone, even the original 2G one, for less than $200. I sold my 2G for $250 recently and had a ton of responses to the ad. Sold my 3G for $350 and even more responses. All that money was put towards my 3GS. [​IMG]

    You would still have to sign up for three years of service including voice and data plans, so it's not what you want anyhow.

    If all you want is everything but the phone part, look into an iPod Touch.

    Same price, same functions, same jailbreaking, way more space.

    The iPod Touch is far cheaper, actually.

    look online for one. I just got a brand new 16GB 3G for $600AUD where in the shops they are $800+

    I have a 2G 8B for sale for $400AUD. The site I'm selling it on have 3 all the same for that price so it will sell, just have to wait for a buyer.

    Oh, BTW, yea they all can be unlocked/jailbreaked now. The one I'm selling is all done.

    The cheap prices are possible due to the contracts you sign at a carrier...so you won't get a 100$ iPhone if you don't sign a contract which is expensive...

    then you need to pay the hefty contract prices or buy a unlocked new one for hefty money or look for cheaper used ones
