    I am looking to save money and by a iphone which has not been activated jailborken or anything. Its 8gb for 340 However i guess it has been dropped when opening the box. However it comes with the receipt and all. They guy got it as a gift right after he purchased one.

    Or buy a new one for 424 with tax.



    Tell me what you think please

    I'd say that if you don't mind the minor scratches buy the $340 one. However, if you are going to buy the new one I'd advice you to wait because in June there is strong evidence that a major iPhone revision [strong rumors concerning 32GB and 3G connectivity] will happen.

    Hope it helps

    T-mobile (when it gets 3G) will use 1700/2100mhz
    AT&T uses 1900/2100mhz for 3G

    So iPhones for the most part won't be able to use T-mobile's 3G (unless you're in a strictly 2100mhz area, which I believe is small).

    I thought about the same thing as I also use tmo, and 3g wouldnt be a deal breaker as we wouldnt be able to use it anyways. Honestly, try to scrape up the few extra bucks and get a new one. I think, in the end you'll be happy you did.
