    For 30 euro. New condition, they always used cases, and screenprotectors. Saw pictures, and there were zero scratches. It comes in tomorrow. :p

    Now is the question; 'but why did you buy it? its 6 years old!'. Yes, it is, but in 3 months, i can get a new phone, and its probably going to be a iphone! And wth 30 euros, for a iphone 4.. i can't let that slip away. I always had android, ( and still using..) and its so slow. Laggy, etc. :( Obviously, i still got my Note 3, so that is always going to be my main phone. The iphone has ios 7.1.2 btw.

    Reason i also bought it because i want to know if its nice to have a IOS phone. :) So i know im sure to buy a iphone in 3 months. :)

    :)

    All your reasons for buying it are legitimate.

    I took an iPhone 3GS as a gift from my sister at Christmas 2011. It was the wrong carrier and I already had a primary phone at the time. But I knew I was getting the iPhone 5 in late 2012 so I wanted the 3GS so I could learn iOS and become comfortable with it.

    For awhile I was carrying around two phones. But I learned a lot. And when I finally did get my iPhone 5 I was ready. My 3GS slipped down to a media device until a friend needed a phone.

    I'm not a fan at all of the iPhone 4 series, but that's just my personal taste. The 4/4s were game changers and lots of people love them. So congratulations on your 4!

    I got in love with apple since i got my iPad 4. What a master piece! God-tier quality, fast, looking good. It doesn't lag a single bit. I love the IOS. I also got a macbook from 2011, my uncle gave it. Since then, im in love with apple, and hate my note 3. :)

    I didn't convert to Apple until about 2003. My PC crashed and left me with files I couldn't access.

    But I'm more a PowerPC Mac fan than anything. I only own one Intel Mac. For devices, I've had the 6+ and now I have the 6s+. My iPhone 5 is my media device now and I use my iPad Air 2 as a moving map/GPS system in my car.

    In general, I'm pretty much an Apple fan although there are certain things I don't care for with Apple and certain products I have no interest in.

    Well for 30 euros it's worth a punt especially if you only intend to use it for a few months. My mum is still using her iPhone 4 that she got in 2010. She refuses to upgrade it, God knows why. It's like she would even have to pay. However it still works for her so I suppose you should get on ok with yours.

    I have nothing really to add here except the OP seems like the nicest guy ever. Enjoy your iPhone 4, man!

    I still use my iPhone 4 as my secondary phone which is still in pristine condition.

    I almost spit out my hot chocolate on my rMBP (2015 13' 128GB SSD, for those interested).
    Thanks for the laugh:D

    I got my iphone 4 today. I really like the size. The typing is bit hard, but besides that, its a nice phone. Will be using it for 3 months, and then get the 6 plus, or maybe the 7 if its out?

    The battery is at 85% already. Only downside of the phone. :p
