    Hi Everyone

    I used to have a 2g iphone on Orange until it got stolen a couple of months back by some lowlife!

    Iv been using some LG mibile thing since and its amazing how other phones dont even come close to the original iphone!

    So im thinkin its time to get a new one. im just struggling to decide between a 3g and a 3gs. Which ever I get needs to work on Orange as my company pays my contract.

    The main issues are as follows;

    3g 16gb
    I can get this phone for about £300 on Ebay
    it comes unlocked but it is second hand
    Im not too sure what the resell value is going to be like in 12 months time
    It doesnt have all the features as the 3gs
    the main difference that im interested is the speed, is there much difference?

    3gs 16gb
    I can get this from the Apple store for £440 (really pushing the budget but doable)
    the biggest issue is unlocking it for Orange. I have done some reading and the whole thing seems so confusing? is this easy to do?

    If i could get some advice that would be great, iv gone to buy both these phones loads of time over the last couple of days!

    Cheers in advance

    No brainer, a new iPhone 3Gs.

    Just do a search, this request has been asked many times. There are many new features to the 3GS, just check out apple's site. If none of those features appeal to you and you don't mind getting a used phone on ebay then get the 3G.
