I only bought it to play with jailbreaking so I wouldn't mess up my 3G. It works great and is loaded with 3.0.1.

I think you could just pop in your SIM and go with it. It was never activated through itunes and was jailbroken. Then I updated to 3.0.1 and iTunes still didn't ask to activate it but cydia was gone. I'm a noob in those regards. I'd be happy to answer any questions here or through ebay.

could look iniside and see what's on my
mind.

Not trying to troll or anything, but given that an 8GB 3G is only $99 with a contract, $50 as a starting bid is a bit high.

But you HAVE to get a 2 year contract to get that price. The advantage of getting a used phone off ebay is you aren't committed. You can jailbreak, unlock, use another carrier, even AT&T's pre-paid plan.

I checked completed auctions and similar condition phones were going for ~$125 so I don't think my starting bid is out of hand.

Thanks for policing though.
