Friend of mine bought the 3G, and unlocked the phone he had before. As you can see from the photos it's in GREAT shape, I have it in my possession because I told him I would try to sell it for him, after he got scammed on ebay. (Luckily I saw it before he shipped it) He is asking $400 dollars shipped, OBO. Thanks for looking!

as far as I know, anything with a sim card. But, I'd have to ask him, or somebody would have to chime in.

To speak based on my expierence with Unlocked Iphones, it will work with any provider that uses a SIM card

Here is more info on SIM cards so you know what it is, if you dont already. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subscriber_Identity_Module

i said make an offer. on another note however, they seem to go anywhere from 375 to 500 on ebay. This isn't brand new, but it's very nice. He said the absolute lowest is $350

I think Suncom got bought by T-Mobile. So I would say YES it will work. Nice phone. I have an unlocked and jailbroken one using TMobile. Any SIM will work!

Yeah but unfortunately my SIM doesn't work with TMOBILE. I don't know why but I'm sure because I already tried. Seems like SUNCOM is just weird so I dunno if I wanna get this or not.

Its not the SIM that unlocks. Its the phone. Maybe you tried on a locked phone?

this is unlocked, which means it can be used with any SIM card. Brand new they were not unlocked. Do some research man, unlocked iphones go anywhere from 300 to 500 dollars. 3G iphones that are unlocked go for nearly 800 or more.

ok i worked for AT&T wireless when they came out, they were 600 for the 8g and 500 for the 4g when they first came out, a couple months later they discontinued the 4g and dropped the price 200$ on both, so 400 for the 8g and 300 for the remaining 4g's in stock (which sold out in about 2 days) it cost about 50$ to get them unlocked (if your not getting ripped off) i know multiple guys that will unlock them for 30-50$, i also know a couple who charged 100$ but they didn't exactly get much business...

don't tell me to do my research i know more about that phone than 90% of the people trying to sell them...

not to mention the current Iphone is only 200$ and you DO NOT have to sign a contract to purchase it because we do not activate them in the store(we tell you that you have to sign a contract but its a lie), they are activated at home when you plug it into Itunes it goes thru a built in process and its self activated. when they are sold from the store we literally hand you the box and it has a non-active Iphone in it and we tell you to have a nice day.

ok, so how much are they selling for mr. high and mighty? Upon searching through the lovely Fleabay you will find pages of them selling for around 300, so the price is fair now. Before the 3G came out, the 400 was warranted. I don't give a rats *** if you worked for AT&T and what they sold for new. That has nothing to do with how much an unlocked phone sells for on the web....

and what I'M TELLING YOU is the only reason they sell for that is because people are retarded... they are not worth more than 250... period, and thats brand new in the box unlocked, its 200 for the phone and 50 to get it unlocked.

its just like a housing market, a 3000sq ft house in neighborhood (A) may go for 300k, but the same house in neighborhood (B) will go for 450k just because there were people stupid enough to pay that much for the rest of the houses in that neighborhood.

i'm not denying its a good price in comparison to what everyone else is selling them for... i'm simply saying the actual value of the phone and the unlocking process is no where neer what people are paying for them

delete the argument, im not trying to mess up your sale, good luck... try craigslist too, they go for 450-500 on craigslist and your buddy probably have a better chance at the 350-400 mark

read post above, didn't mean to dump, delete the argument and good luck with sale.

and when i worked for AT&T i did just that, i knew someone who unlocked phones and i sold him OTHER phones at contract prices and in turn he unlocked 5 Iphones for me for free, employees get 10% off so i payed 360$ for each of them and sold them for 500$ each, but that was before the 200$ model came out so back then it was a good deal

i understand, i have no idea what they sell for this is not my phone. I just gauged prices according to ebay, and he reminded me today he needed to sell it.

unfortunately he tried that, and even though it's local that is where people are trying to rip him off. The always popular story "I live in Georgia, but my brother lives in Indonesia, can you send the phone to him but let me pay for it?"

I used this back when I was new to paypal, somebody in Oregon paid for my pioneer in dash dvd, and I shipped it to a country overseas. Come to find out it was somebody elses paypal, and because I shipped it overseas to an unconfirmed address then I wasn't covered, goodbye 950 dollars. I literally told him this as he was about to ship it.

I guess it's happened like three times now, if anybody is interested, contact me.

the reason they sell that high is because people buy them from international countries where you can't but them in stores
