    k , i finally got 500$ into my paypal

    been going through ebay ...

    is it just me or the white iphones are much cheaper than the black ones? "why" ?

    beside the cracks " which im not sure if i should even worry so much about"

    and any chance i can score a new black one with this budget?

    I wouldn't worry about the cracks. Not sure why the white ones are cheaper on ebay but I imagine you should be able to get an iphone with that $ (not sure which one though).

    Just get a new one and cancel your contract like one month after and unlock it. That should be about 400 bucks worth.

    Didn't you just calculate it? I thought you might be interested in the 8 gig iPhone 3G instead unless you intend to store alot of videos on it. I'm satisfied with mine.

    iPhone 3G+1 month plan+cancellation fee=total.

    im talking about the 16 gig

    im not even sure about my numbers

    so the 16 gig , one month , cancellation fee ... taxes and everything else

    will this be under 500$ ?

    Yes, the refurbished iPhone 3Gs from ATT or Apple that costs 249 might have better quality but used before. That might save you 50 bucks. Either way, its all under 500.

    Yes, depending on how much your monthly fee is.

    Wouldn't your monthly fees be around $70 for each month? $40 for the voice plan and $30 for the iPhone data plan? Unless you were talking about just the data portion...

    Uh-oh. Too bad, I can get an iPhone 3G without a social security number any day here in Canada. Can't really help from here, good luck.

    PS: You can get unlocked brand new iPhones if you come up north ;). Or order online from one of our 3rd party stores.

    Last time I checked, yes. I think you need it for the sim card. Do you own a cell phone now?

    Sorry, but I think eBay is your only option. Or try or ordering online.

    This is a thread, and there's an ongoing discussion. I do not get how this is spam and how it could spam the boards.

    Sorry, but that's the only available Canadian 3rd party store I could find in the first link, but they aren't selling it anymore.
