Default The iPhone

Hey guys, do any of you know anyone selling an unlocked iPhone? Jailbroken or not?

I'm really interested in the phone.

I'm looking for the old iPhone (not the 3G).

I don't know anyone right now but I just did a quick search on eBay and there are a lot of stuff there. Jail-broken, unlocked, just by searching "iPhone unlocked"

Give it a try

Oh and make sure it's eBay.ca

i do not want to purchase from ebay because i want to see the condition of the phone before i actually buy a used one.

who knows what one person's perception of "mint" condition is compared to mine.

Hmmm, check with Benzo, jumpman. He might have some more insight for you regarding the iPhone seeing how he worked in that industry for awhile.

Do Not.,..I repeat....DO NOT buy an unlocked older version iphone.

Rogers/Fido, will no longer service or allow data transfer to the old no "branded" ones....because of the release of the new one on Friday.

As a side note...it looks pretty and all, but the Tech is accually kinda old in it.

Wait what !!!! :|.
So even if we get the older one, they won't be able to use any plan we want on it?

Fuck Apple. This is getting fuckin' ridiculous.

It's not Apple....its Rogers.

Apple wants its customers to get unlimted data...ROgers will not allow it..thats why the first iphone never made it.

You can get a plan...on it still but it will be a crippled device.

What I'm talking about is that Rogers and Fido won't let you use whatever plan you want on the phone, even if its unlocked? the old one i mean.
how would they know you were using an iphone anyway?

Data. You can use whatever plan you want. However, you will have problems with text and data transfer. If you just want the phone to make call and look pretty you will be fine, but to run any of the nice apps, you will need a data plan with rogers which the are making impossible as they change from Edge to HSDPA.

What kind of text problems would I have?
Talk, text, and music. That's all I want to do with this phone. Is it still worth it to get an old iPhone unlocked? I don't care about internet, email, GPS, etc.
Can't i also jailbreak my iphone to get some nice apps too?

You will experience some delays in text.

Your apps will have to come 3rd party because you will not be able to download them , because you have no data.

Depending on what price you can get it for...I would wait for one of the new ones to fall off the truck.

Some pros and cons to help you on you're decision, jump:

This is for the newer version:

Pros:
3G network (fast internet and download speeds)
App Store (Ability to download 3rd party applications, such as games, medical terms and more)
GPS (Track where you are when you open up the "Maps" app, gives you turn by turn directions)
Cheaper ($200 cheaper than previous iPhone)
Better battery life, much better

Cons:
Plastic (May scratch more easily than the previous metal shell, but also has better reception)
Slightly thicker
More expensive data plan (Previous plan was $20, now its $30)
