i just won a auction, its almost like new perfect condition iphone 3gs 16gb for 400, is it worthy?
the phone is running ios4.0, and the seller claims that its unlocked and jailbroken, but i heard people said that ios4.0 cant be unlocked yet.
it comes with receipt, and stuff, what else information should i get?

Ask him to show you a picture of the Iphone with Cydia installed, while also showing you the version its running..

And while all this to have your name on a piece of paper as the background.

Also ask where it was purchased from. Some countries (like Australia) sell iPhones factory unlocked.
