Look on the telecom website, they sell iphones new so you will get an idea. Im pretty sure they r close to that price new!

geek_dice4, Jul 4, 8:40 pm

just had a look $589 new on telcom prepaid

geek_souljah_69, Jul 4, 8:51 pm

How many GB and how old! If condition is good then yes thats an okay price to get one for.

geek_massived, Jul 4, 8:53 pm

16gb not sure how old looks ok

geek_souljah_69, Jul 4, 8:57 pm

16GB means its quite old, mid 2010 at the latest

geek_vtecintegra, Jul 4, 9:02 pm

so u would pass on the deal then!

geek_souljah_69, Jul 4, 9:08 pm

I wouldn't buy a pre-4 iPhone full stop - they're just too outdated, poor screen, poor camera etc

Phones have come a long way since then

geek_vtecintegra, Jul 4, 9:09 pm

ok thanks for your help, i want iphone but dont want to pay more than 3-400 any ideas!

geek_souljah_69, Jul 4, 9:11 pm

Its a good price provided it's in good condition. Have a look on expired auctions on here how much 16GB 3GS sell for. That will give you a good idea of what the current market price is for a second hand iPhone. You will be hard pressed to find an iPhone 4 that works fine and is unlocked for less than $400. Most sell well above that.

sorry im not up with the play, locked, how do they become locked! sorry

iPhone and $3-400 don't fit in the same sentence. Double your budget or get Android.

been the age and the battery is not easily replaceable, you prob b3e lucky to get a decent life. off a good trust worthy mate, just maybe.

geek_n1smo_gtir, Jul 4, 10:22 pm

at the very least you could find a iphone 4 for about 400 if you looked hard enough

geek_justnewbie, Jul 4, 10:45 pm

I wouldn't buy any phone that old, for more than $100.

geek_black-heart, Jul 5, 8:57 am

No worries you won't ever find one for that price! They still sell for $350 - 450

geek_massived, Jul 5, 10:12 am

I wouldn't be looking, idiot market space.

geek_black-heart, Jul 5, 12:22 pm

Wait till September where Iphone 5 is out then, the price will drop even further.

geek_ang_ck, Jul 5, 4:01 pm
