    I am currently using an iPhone 4 but have this expensive brick of an old 3G and want to know:
    *Can I use it with only wifi around the House? (like ipod touch)
    *How do I go about not screwing up my iPhone 4 if I plug this 3G back into my itunes? Do I need a new sim card?
    *can it be upgraded to newest software? Can I still put apps on it or share the apps I have on my new iPhone and have purchased from itunes?

    I'm sort of a low level abuser not a tech guru so please go easy on me!!:
    Grazie

    1. yes
    2. just plug it to itunes. It will be recognized as a different phone. No sim required (at least not for unlocked phones)
    3. yes (at least at 4.1) without multitask and backgrounds (unless you do not jailbreak it). Yes you can share purchased apps

    Prego ;)

    Hang on to it. You may want to use it again if you drop your 4 on a brick path.

    Yes, you can still get between $125 and $ 175 depending on it's condition and where you sell it. I'd keep it around just incase something were to happen to your iPhone 4 though.

    I usually give away old electronics to my 6-year-old, along with a screwdriver and a hammer.
