    Default 4 vs 3 IPhone!

    I was looking to buy my first IPhone. Searching Craigs list and there's lots of IP4's for sale ...why?...
    R There still lots of bugs beside the volume issue on them.
    Am I better off getting the 3gs?
    Whats the Jailbreak option.

    LOOKING TO BUY....
    I need a phone that I can be mobile and use the internet all the time for work.
    I also need to be able to have it unlocked to use out of the usa with another sim card.
    5.0 pixels or higher preferred so I can leave camera at home.
    Is there a way to use internet THROUGH the IPhone when at home on my Laptop?
    Thanks Az

    Have you done any research at all before asking these questions? They have all been pretty much answered 100s of times already.

    Three factors:

    1. Right now the 3GS (new, on contract) is so heavily subsidised and seems cheap - $49 for example.
    2. Many people buy the iPhone 4 and then realise they can't unlock it - so they try and offload it on craigslist.
    3. The verizon iPhone, which rumours say is coming next month

    Both new 3GS and iPhone 4 are limited to a tethered jailbreak on iOS 4.2.1 (latest iOS) - some 3GS that were made before September 2009 don't have this tethered jailbreak limitation.

    Then you need to look at getting an offically unlocked iPhone (buy from Apple Canada, Hong Kong or Singapore) These cost upwards of US$850

    No new iPhone 4 sold on AT&T can be unofficially unlocked with ultrasn0w.

    A new 3GS can be unlocked with ultrasn0w but you risk losing GPS functionality and have limited restore options.

    Some carefully maintained second hand iPhone 4 and 3GS can be unlocked with ultrasn0w, but you need to confirm the baseband, saved SHSH (and for 3GS - new or old bootrom) before purchase.
