    I've just ordered my 3GS over the phone with an o2 rep

    I had to pay £144 to buy out contract and £87 for the handset

    I ordered a 16gb in White

    I sold my 3g iphone on ebay for £320, so made a nice profit :)
    :cool:

    £0 because I didn't upgrade. I have no need for a digital compass. I'm gonna upgrade next june when the true upgraded phone is released.

    No harm in an upgrade if you're making money doing it :D

    If you did your maths properly you'd see that you certainly are not making money - just not spending quite as much as you could have done.

    When you pay off your contract, is the telephone number cancelled? I want to do the same as you but dont want to give up my number.

    If you did your Maths properly, I have!!

    Sold Iphone 3g for approximately £320

    Bought out contract £144

    Paid for new handset £87 (approximately)

    = £231

    £91 in my account extra to play with and still paying the same monthly

    :eek:

    How much did you originally pay for your iPhone 3G, how long was the original contract you signed and how much is your monthly line rental?
