I have been looking at buying an iphone on craigslist and I came across this. Can anyone confirm if this works. ------------------------- Extremely Important to Read Everything --------------------- Hi y'all!!! If you clicked on this ad, chances are you're able to pay $489 for a Brand New 3GS 16GB iPhone or at least close to it. Anyways, here's what you need to do (I just got mine today!!!) I've been on CL for 3 days shopping for a fairly priced used iphone 3G but all i got after meeting countless "young" on a summer job iPhone resellers who lies about the condition of their iphones and over-pricing them as well was nothing but aggravation and Frustration!!! It is when I finally listened to my cousin who works for at&t and told me exactly what to do and how to go about it!! And here it goes... Note : If you're with t-mobile, do not cancel your contract with them. Step 1 Go to any at&t store (not apple store), buy a 3GS 16GB iPhone Black/white for $213.43 (including tax) total cash out!! Step 2 Subscribe to their minimum monthly plan required for a 2-year Contract of $74.99 Step 3 Register your iPhone the First Time you connect to Itunes with apple the moment you activate it so that they have your name on file for warranty purposes. Step 4 Jailbreak and Unlock your BRAND NEW 3GS so you can use it with t-mobile (just in case they're your current provider). don't pay anybody for these cuz even a 12 year old can do it. (go to google or youtube to get the instructions) it takes about 7 minutes to do it!! Step 5 Use your NEW iPhone for 3 weeks ( unlimited data and 450 roll over minutes ) just make sure you don't go over the 450 minutes! or better yet, just use your t-mobile SIM if you have one. Step 6 Call at&t after 3 weeks and cancel your service then pay $200 early termination penalty and First month Bill of $74.99!! By Law, they will have to abide by your request and your credit will NEVER be ruined so long as you pay the $200 penalty!! So there you go!!.... total cost for your Brand New iPhone 3GS 16GB is $489.00 !! you can go to att.com and check it out yourself!! (3G is even cheaper!!!) Total time spent : 35-40 minutes at the at&t store + 10 minutes on the phone with at&t to cancel service = 45-50 MINUTES!! ( I spent a combined total of more than 5 hrs talking to different iPhone resellers trying to make a quick bucks off of me!!!) Don't buy from these lying, over pricing, young"trying to make quick bucks" iPhone RE-SELLERS!!!!!!!!!!!
