    Hi - so here is a question I have. I currently have a 1st gen iPhone and will buy a new 3G iPhone on Friday.

    I understand from the web (do not remember where) that I can essentially use the old 1st gen iPhone as an iPod after I activate the new 3G iPhone.

    My question is: will we be able to upgrade the software on the old 1st gen iPhones to the new version 2 software AFTER we have activated our new 3G iPhones? And if we can do so, does anyone know if we would be able to purchase Apps from the App store as well?

    Thanks in advance.
