I want to get an iphone so I can have my phone + mp3 player in one device (i'd get a blackberry but I stupidly legally bought iTunes DRM music rather then using Amazon so now I have to get an Apple device). I am only going to be working in the US for one year and then going abroad (most likely) for 2-3 years, so I dont want to get a new iPhone 3g and have to get in a new contract, pay the ETF AND turn in my iphone to ATT in one year. If I get a 1st gen iPhone off ebay and unlock/jail break it are there any good carriers that offer a reasonable price without a 2 year contract? Do they provide data? I cant seem to find ANY, but I know a lot of 1g iPhone users used diff companies. Do any of you have any suggestions? Thanks!
