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.

Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black Smartphone

I've bought two, despite the fact that the battery life is an issue. I have all apple products here so I just make sure all are charging when not away from home. I am about to buy another and perhaps a fourth at a later date. My granddaughters are thrilled that we can stay in touch with each other and their Granny and can play games, use the camera and video, play music and stories. The phone is always with us and frankly, with iOS upgrades, there are no worries about compatibility and syncing with our home and on-the-move communication equipment. One more granddaughter to join the circle right now and two more in a few years time.

Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black Smartphone

Have owned the phone a few weeks. I can type but find the keyboard difficult and easy to make mistakes. My wife has one and loves it so maybe it is just me. Went back to my old phone and when the voice recognition software improves will have another go.As a tool for news etc on the go is brilliant and found the phone itself to work well.

Only buy the genuine Apple iPhone!

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

Ebay is a great place to buy an iPhone because the site offers second hand goods in perfect working order at a cheaper price than brand new and sometimes they are unlocked allowing you to put any sim card in them.

The genuine iPhone allows you to purchase apps only avalible on the Apple iPhone such as Tower Defense, eventually this game may arrive on the android market. There is a difference in quality to the generic/fake iPhone, the fakes with dual sim cards fail and ARE NOT user friendly, (i know beacuse I bought one and had to get a refund!) The iPhone is Highly reccomended!!! Dont waste your time with other brands of phones or fakes!

Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black Smartphone

The reason I bought this phone was for work screen size enables you to read your emails alot easier its an easy phone to use and is very quick to respond the one problem with it is if you are using it like I do for emails and photos and sending them onto another party then the battery life is short yes I would buy this phone again but will probably be looking for something to extend the battery life not always near power you see

Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black Smartphone

Love the phone, it is a shame that it did not come with a battery charger which the previous owner should have stated when he was selling the item on ebay. Again very happy with the phone. I use to use Nokia phones but from now on Iphone. The phone is user friendly, I Love it.

suits our needs.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this phone as a replacement for my daughter's old phone. She is very happy to be "modern" like her friends & she uses it every day. The only issue we have had since buying the phone is that the battery doesn't last as long as we'd thought but as it is an older style I-phone it is to be expected. We are very happy with it.
