    I am looking to buy a used 3GS to replace my wife's 3G. Neither of our lines are eligible for upgrade till Feb/March 2011.

    My question is if I buy a used 3GS off ebay, is there anything more involved that just putting her current sim card from the 3G into it?

    I'll sell you mine if you want. 32GB black 3GS in great condition. Only glitch is that my iPhone 4 doesn't show up until July 6-8.

    Mine 32GS Black will be available after Thursday! Only normal wear and tear..never dropped and works just like the day I purchased it. Have the original box and everything that I received in the box. Ear buds never used and still in original wrapper. If interested PM me and I will send pictures...

    Might be interested in those, if the price is right... :p

    So just to clarify, if I go this route, will I have to renew a new 2 year contract?

    Can anyone verify that doing this wont automatically extend my contract?
