Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black Smartphone

iPhone.... The only phone I have ever had, that MUST be connected to the internet through Apple iTunes BEFORE you can use it.

Reason for getting the phone... I had no internet or phone on where I was. I told this to the seller, it was extremely difficult to get the phone... "Activated" so I could use it. Very frustrating, they assume everyone has iTunes. How conceited are Apple??!!

After much fuss and bother and quite a few expletives!!! I finally got it activated. Since then, and after upgrading the IOS operating system, it has been OK. Battery life is indeed an issue, I had a Samsung Galaxy before this phone and battery life was about twice what this one is. Using the phone the same amount, as well as email and facebook, the iPhone fails in the power/demand ratio department significantly.

Other then having to stick the phone on to charge twice as often, I have found the phone to be easy to use and reliable.

Not as flash as the iPhone 5, or as quick. But for the price, it does everything I need it to do. Just wish the battery was better and able to be replaced as easy as other phones.

The iphone, do i need to say more?

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black Smartphone

One of the best mobile phones you can get. Very user friendly and has so many apps that allow this mobile to be one of the most versatile products in the market. Even though it is an out of date model by apple iphones for the price you can currently buy it for you really does provide great value for your money.


The only issues that come into mind are;
- Sometimes the iphone may glitch with some programs, but definitely not a major issue at all.
- battery life could drain pretty fast depending on how much you use the mobile and what you do with it. Having said that, as I charge my mobile daily there has never been a situation where my mobile has ran out of batteries by the end of the day (take into account that I use teh mobile A LOT). Or simpily get a attachable external battery as I have heard they are very effective.
- And finally, the reception on the iphone (at times) isnt very superior. But it is not as bad as it sounds.

All in all great mobile, you HAVE to use it to understand how great and diverse this mobile is. Got mine stolen (no surprise) and bought the exact same model here on ebay. Probably would never switch to a different mobile producer again, yep, thats the impact it has had on me!

The best X-mas present to myself I ever.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I am not the smartes person when it comes to new technology, however, I was able to work with this phone just about immediatelly, once I had downloaded the right itunes programe. It is so much easier to text, messaging and it keeps me up to date with many other things that I always forget, such as appointments, shopping list, and able to navigate to addresses easier than using a street directory.
It has so much more that a regular phone, is more like a miniture computer. Compact, light, and I can dress it up to match my mood and dress.

Very disappointed. Beware!

No, I would not recommend this product.

I bought this model because I have used a 3GS bought in Australia for the past 3 years and have been very happy with it.

Unfortunately the model that I purchased this time around is far inferior. It is supposed to be brand new but it doesn't behave like a new phone. I have not loaded any new apps and my usage is just odd phone calls and receipt of emails but the phone starts discharging rapidly from the time it is taken off the charger. When the battery life gets below 50% (usually within a few hours) the phone is likely to cut out completely and will not switch on again until re-charged.

This does not behave like a new phone. I suspect that it could be a refurbished phone with an old battery.

Quality phone.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black Smartphone

Good phone with inbuilt GPS and voice recognition.
Need to work on the battery and just let the longer lasting batteries onto the market once and for all.
Don't let Duracell, Everready and other industry powers hold back the release of better technology.
Look what happened to Kodak and probably GMh for not releasing better technology.

Nice... Not bad

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The iphone, one of the worlds most popular multitool gadget, enough said really... however there are certain disappointing but inevitable factors that hamper the iphones overall performance.

I love the features and all they make life much more convenient like when your on the train or bus you can still browse the internet, play a game or listen to your favourite tracks, you can always download and install apps that the default menu lacks free of charge *most of the time. The interface is brilliant compared to any other smartphone or touch screen, sensitive but intelligent just the way i like it :P .

Unfortunately, the battery life is appaling when used for using high performance applications such as games or watching videos but thats completely normal as the iphone was not designed solely as a computer so don't buy it if that's your only motive. As a normal phone however the battry life is like any other phone but you wouldn't be dishing out an extra $100-$200 for an ordinary phone would you which is rather ironic... but who am i to critisise.

I would recommend this product to those who either are enthusiastic about all this *new tech* and aren't afraid to spend a little extra and for those whom like streaming videos and playing games and aren't annoyed by the fact that you'll have to charge the phone every night.

Awesome I phone best in its range with IOS5 much easier to use.Great Value!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I phone with 1OS 5 make sure before purchase its tested and set to factory setting by the seller.
The phone is awesome. Plenty of space for 32G. Much faster than 3G and its very easy to use and battery life is not bad providing you keep all data roaming, Wifi, in check. As that can chew your battery pretty quick. Good value for money! Best Smart phones in the market to get in to Iphones if you are keen to get in to I products.
This compares to Galaxy S on the samsung. I love I phone for the versatility and love I products cannot beat the style and intricate details they go in to and always updating.
Battery can be a bit of a bummer and the camera is pretty poor but still takes good video and photographs
