    I have my old 3GS that I've been using as an iPod. I have it on 4.0.1 (8A306). It is jailbroken, unlocked, and has Cydia installed. I'm going to put my GV number on it. I don't like playing games, but I'm interested into what I can do with this thing! Help me out guys, give me some ideas!

    You can download songs to it and play them back later!

    WTH??? It still works, and even has a screen protector, keeping my fingers away from the glass. It's still functional and I was just trying to find a way to repurpose it. Geez.

    relax TS a little sense of humor their! ;) you can sell it on Ebay as is but describe it accurately or it might come back to bite you. thre are kits you buy for 20-30 on ebay to repair it. There are also iphone repair centers that will fix it for about 60 bucks at least by me. I recently found my daughters ipod I replaced because she thought she lost it. I am now using it I downloaded all my spotify music and I play off the ipod to avoid extra streaming charges, Since at made my unlimited plan 3gb! :(

    Thanks everyone for the advice but the point of this thread isn't that I need it repaired or want to sell it, It's the fact that I don't have phone service on it, and want to know how I should repurpose it.

    I remember seeing somewhere that someone had an Android they didn't need and turned it into a mobile hack and Network Diagnosis. They had apps that could deny others wi-fi, packet sniffers, apps to ping other computers, etc. Wondered what I should do with this iPhone

    Cornhole

    Seriously though. I'd replace the screen. Like labman said, $30 or so and you can have a perfectly working phone. There are step by step YouTube videos to help. I did it on my 3GS.

    Labman, great idea to stream the music! I've been killing my data plan lately streaming music on my commute. I'll have to look into that solution. I have no clue how to do it but I'm sure there are plenty of articles on that subject. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Edit: I hate how on the mobile version of the forum, the blue "Done" button is lined up perfectly with the "Submit" button. I'm always having to edit my posts!

    That's why I use the full version of the site on the iPhone... Most sites, actually.

    Yea I think you and I have had this discussion before in the past. Maybe I'll have to start using the desktop version. Thanks dolphin browser for making that switch so easy! I'll try it out and see how it goes.
