    You can buy Leopard (10.5) from Apple you might find some people on eBay selling Tiger.

    Did Microsoft give you Vista for free when you wanted to upgrade from Windows 98? No? This is exactly the same thing.

    You have 10.2.8.

    You need 10.3.9 minimum for an iPhone 2G. I don't know if you need 10.4+ for the iPhone 3G.
