    Hey guys,

    I'm in love with my Blackberry Bold.. though it's fallen on some hard times. ASSUMING it doesn't recover (hoping it will!!!)

    I would LOVE a backup phone, and have some potential deals on an iphone 3G... (ie 2nd gen)... for like $250, new, no contracts etc....

    is that worth it??? I don't know what they're really WORTH now that the 3GS is out.

    Speaking of which - I'm on Rogers, and a Blackberry customer (with the $30 for 6 gigs of data, data plan) - Anyone know of any way to get a 3GS on the cheap??

    Honestly I don't want to give up BB for ever.. but if my Bold doesn't recover, I'd be down with using/playing with an iphone until the onyx comes out...

    I bought my wife a 3G off craigslist (Atlanta area) for $300 for 16GB.

    Sold my 16gb for $350 to a friend... could have gotten $400 as it was jailbroken and unlocked.

    I think $400 would be a bit of a stretch especially as the 3GS becomes more ubiquitous. On Craigslist in DC most 16 GB 3G iPhones are selling for about 200-350 (100 listings in the last 2 days)

    Most Storms are selling for around 175-300.

    If your monthly bill was over 100 for the last 6 months you qualify for a 3gs at 200. Check online.

    Yeah heard about that - and it's pretty rad.. sadly I know I don't.... I got my bold with the $30 / 6 gig data package when it was brand new... then I have like.. $10 voice, and I think $15 smartphone pack? My bill usually comes in around low 70 I believe....

    Sold my 8GB to a friend for $225 shipped but I could have got more if I really wanted. I saw the 8GB's going for $250-$275 on ebay

    Actually missed my shot at the $250 3G... which I'm ok with.

    Though my Bold's health IS still in peril
    (as it sits in rice as I type this, trying to get any last moisture out)
