If you have an iPhone you will need to download and install iTunes (no charge) on your PC in order to be able to add music, photos, videos, etc. to your iPhone. The vast majority of iPhones produced by Apple were locked to a single carrier (AT&T, Sprint & Verizon) in the US and you will not be able to use an iPhone locked to one of these carriers on the network of another carrier. For instance, in order to use an iPhone 3GS produced for AT&T on T-Mobile you will first need to have the iPhone unlcoked. AT&T implemented a new policy on 3/8/12 under which they will unlock an iPhone under certain conditions (google AT&T iPhone unlock). This type of unlock is frequently referred to as a "Factory unlock". The other method of unlocking an iPhone is a software hack (3 steps which are jailbreak, unlock and hactivate). Be very careful of buying a jailbroken iPhone unless you know exactly what you are doing/getting. The later software versions (referred to as the IOS or iPhone Operating System)installed on iPhones have severe limitations at this time in terms of jailbreaking. Most/all of the current jailbreaks are tethered (you can only reboot the iPhone when connected to a PC which has the jailbreak software on the PC and you need to know how to load and use the jailbreak software) or involve loading the iPad baseband (radio receiver/transmitter) on the iPhone. Many of the iPhones with the iPad baseband have severe problems which can NOT be fixed (you can send the phone to China to have the baseband ships replaced) including non-operational Wi-Fi, non-operational Bluetooth, constant rebooting, non-operational GPS and fast battery drain.Read more ›

I ordered this iphone 3Gs 8gb which was supposed to be unlocked and jailbroken and it was! I was happy especially after being so skeptic from the other buyer reviews, I was happy to know that I actually got what I ordered. My seller was Ibuy NWA and they gave me the exact product that they described, it wasn't scratched up or cracked, it looked practically brand new to me. I am using it with my t-mobile sim card that I had previously used with my android unlocked phone, and it is working just perfectly! I haven't had any problems yet, in fact I am thrilled and really happy with my purchase! I would definitely recommend this to any other person who is looking to buying an unlocked/jailbroken iphone that isn't terribly expensive. :) (This is also my first iphone)

Bought from Amazon Warehouse deals. The product is in great condition but is not unlocked at all. The "funny" thing is that I called Amazon Wireless prior to shopping the product and they "confirmed" it was unlocked. Not at all. I am without phone right now because of that. Way to go Amazon!

Well, I actually bought this phone from FGS Trading, I'm very very happy because it arrived in less time that I expected.
This phone is for my son he loves apple products and i saw it and touched it and I'm very glad with this seller cause it really is a factory unlocked iPhone there was no problem with the other companies and the box was with the factory plastic wrap.
I would really buy again with this seller I'm very happy.
PS: The best phone I've ever seen.
Congrats FGS Trading.

I bought the phone from abe-123 vendor. I bought this for the wife because she loved her last iPhone. The delivery was fast, a lot faster then I expected. The only problem is that when she got it, it was stuck in recovery mode right out of the box, and nothing she did would get it unstuck. She went to the AT&T store and they couldn't do anything about it either. Now she has to send it back to Apple, which thank goodness it is still covered under warranty. So Apple is sending a replacement phone for her.

I understand I might have gotten one faulty phone out of several, but that is why I gave it a 3 out of 5, because I have to get a replacement phone for the one I just bought and didn't get to use once. I'm not going to blame the vendor at this point, because I know not every item will be functioning perfectly like it should

You should be aware that the 3GS was discontinued by Apple when they released the iPhone 5 in September of 2012.

You need to read the ads from marketplace vendors and be aware of the various types of "unlocks" and what "new" means. Not all vendors use these terms the same way (they mostly want you to think it is "no headaches" factory unlocked when in fact it may not be).

* "Factory unlocked" should mean shipped unlocked by Apple itself - after all, Apple is the "factory". You should be aware that the ONLY USA-authorized, factory (Apple) unlocked iPhone 3GS was the 8gb model with model number MC637LL/A. If you have a 16gb or 32gb or an 8gb with part number MC640LL/A, they might be CARRIER unlocked, or SOFTWARE unlocked (hacked), but they aren't "factory" unlocked. Apple stopped selling factory unlocked, 8gb iPhone 3GS models when they introduced the iPhone 5 in September 2012. The 4 became the new entry-level, factory unlocked iPhone at $450 (Apple had been selling the unlocked 3GS for $375). You might still be able to get Apple refurbished unlocked 3GS's in typical Apple "new" condition (albeit factory refurbished).

* "Carrier unlocked" is not a commonly used term because "factory unlocked" is what most buyers want to hear, and if a seller is honest and the phone is carrier unlocked instead of factory unlocked, they will usually just say "unlocked" (not say "factory unlocked"). Unlocked phones (carrier unlocked) do not require "activation" and will take any GSM sim (standard size). The operating system can be upgraded to the latest bug-fix or feature enhanced edition without any risk of "freezing" or "re-locking" your phone.
