    This post kinda refers to the post HERE.

    I'm wanting to buy an iPhone off of Ebay. I'm just kinda wondering if i should be a activated, or unactivated iPhone.

    Please do not get this confused with locked or unlocked, as they are 2 different things. Though, i'm sure people here know that. ;) (locked and unlocked refer to jailbroken or not right?)

    with the high probability of one being announced tomorrow, wait a few more hours

    not sure what you mean because it doesn't actually make sense, but an unactivated phone cannot be used at all, except to call 911 or other emergency numbers

    nope. locked/unlocked means whether the phone can be used only on at&t (or other networks depending on country). and unlocked iphone can be used with any gsm network

    and a jailbroken phone is jailbroken, thats the only term used to describe it

    OK. So now we've seen the new 3g iphone. Which is better to get? I guess its all up to you, since the 3g iphone has down sides and up sides.

    :mad:Something i don't like is that plastic back. Does that mean 1 drop and its shattered or what? I really don't know. Must have to wait for a YouTube drop test.

    :)Something that i do like is that half price ordeal.
