I want to buy a first gen iphone. I have no 3G where I live and we are not likely to receive it anytime soon. I also have no use for gps as I already have an excellent Garmin unit.

There are several 16gb models listed on NZ auction sites already, reserve set at $400 so I would not be willing to pay any more than that.

Obviously given todays announcement this may be a good opportunity for someone to offload their 1st gen if they are going to upgrade to the 3G model.

Must be in very good condition.

Perhaps wait till vodafone starts churning them out? As soon as that happens then a 1st gen should be cheap as.

Got me a 16gb iphone for just over $400 so pretty happy with that. No high monthly on account fee's for me eitherLaughing

Score.. Not bad. Though the new ones should come in at a pretty reasonable price point.

If I had 3G coverage I would have considered the new model. Don't like the sound of being committed to a high monthly fee either.

Somehow i dont think vodafone will be going with the same low price policy as AT&T.

1st gen will end up coming down in price, thing is that the 3g may be cheap, but remember you'll have to sign up for 24 months.
That's how you usually get good handsets for the end of the day you end up paying a high price anyway!
