    iPhone newbie here - so bear with me:eek:

    I'm wanting to get my GF an iPhone 4 ( not 4s ). So I want to buy second hand. She has an Orange sim only contract. What are my option - go for an unlocked phone, or an Orange phone?

    Will she need a new sim to get all things working on the new phone? If so - how do you go about it ( i.e. - phone up Orange and ask?? :D ).

    Anything I should watch out for when buying a used iPhone 4 - probably look on Ebay, don't want to buy a stolen phone or anything like that.

    Thanks all

    lets see.

    Unlocked or organge locked will work.
    I think she'll need a new sim as the 4 uses a micro sim. Once the carrier gives her that she'll be able to use it.
    Never bought a phone from Ebay so my only advice is: if something looks to good to be true it probably is. Good luck.
