My guess would be 3.0, 3.1 is still pretty new. If you upgrading or staring a new line you will have to activate it. If you buy it outright I don't think you will have to activate it, problem is you will have to pay full price for the phone. That will cost you some coin.

I just bought the 8 gig on Monday, and it had 3.0. Someone else in the store at the same time bought the 16g, and it also had 3.0.

Awesome well I will pay 500 for the 3gS with 3.0 or 3.0.1 to jailbreak and hack.

I have a 3g 16gb white right now all unlocked. Those are selling for 350-500 on ebay, then I have 3g 8gb cracked screen unlocked to sell on ebay to make difference....

edit: I have 3 iphones right now. Iphone 2G unlocked, Black Iphone 3G 8gb unlocked(cracked screen) and a White Iphone 3g 16gb unlocked.

I want to get the 3GS 32gb to jailbreak and sell off these other 2 or 3 to recover the 500 for the 32gig. I just need to MAKE SURE it has the 3.0 or 3.0.1 and make sure they cant force me to activate it in the store..

SWEET! These fools piss me off. I tried walking into the store to buy one and the guy said it was 699 for the 32gb and he HAD to activate it in the store. I said but I dont need you to activate it. Actually my gf was in there trying to buy it becuase I'm at work. I can get a new one online for 499. I dont understand the price difference because it says im not due a upgraded price till 6/2010. But I ordered it online at 499 and the store wants 699 and he HAS to activate it...

WTF!

Well I got mine in and it was 3.0.1 which is AWESOME! Once i got it home I was having issues after I tried a few things. LONG story short I was forced to restore and update to 3.1.

SOOOO I took it back to ATT store today to exchange(30 days) for another white 32gb. Thank god they swapped it out and gave me another BRAND new iphone and it had 3.0.1 and I WILL NOT do what I did to lock it up this time.

You cannot shift restore the 3gs phones like you can the 3g phones. Itunes FORCES you to restore and update to 3.1 on the 3gs if you lock it up and HAVE to restore... Trust me!

Why get a 3GS? You can get a 3G for less than half the price and mod it. I'm pretty sure somebody has done it so they can send MMS. Might not be able to record video, but who cares? There will be a new version within a year. The 3GS was basically made only to appease the public.

Why get it, Well I originally bought the 16gb 3g but after jailbreaking my friends 3gs and saw how much faster it is I was like, I better take advantage of the upgrade discount price for the 3gs...

ITS WAY FASTER.. YOu can MOD a 3gs JUST as you can the 3G plus its faster and has video. Yes you can get cycorder but it still isnt as easy as having a permy one installed. I cudnt figure out how to send or save vidoes from cycorder.
yes ive been sending MMS on the 3G for a few weeks now and it switched right over to the 3gs now and WAY WAY faster...

dial up to DSL as is 3G to 3GS

i am sure if you have your itunes modded you could.... you would be sending your info to cydia vs apple and they send back a okay.. .then you can do it...

Everyone I know that went from a 3G to 3Gs has said all the speed hype is bullshit, that it's not any faster than their 3G was.

That is the whole reason I went and bought mine. I had never used a 3gs, I went JB my buddies and he had one. It caused me to go buy one the very next day it was that much faster so they're full of it... twice as fast

i found something that my 3gs has that my wife's 3g doesn't...i'm sure that everyone knows, but i'll mention it anyway. if you hold down the "home" button (i guess that's what it's called) you get a voice command that lets you call someone in your contacts by saying their name. that's pretty cool...

If you have a jailbroken 3.0 or 3.0.1 then you can keep the jailbreak and go to 3.1 on the 3gS

Quote:
If you have a 3G[S], you will need to have ALREADY jailbroken the device at a previous 3.xfirmware (3.0 or 3.0.1) in order for this to work. If you have a 3G[S] which came at or has already been upgraded to 3.1 through Apple, this release of PwnageTool (3.1.3) WILL NOT WORK.

But then you lose the unlock and tethering, CORRECT?

So why go to 3.1? NOTHING 3.1 can do that 3.0 cant...

3.1 offered what? MMS.... thats it! Now jailbreak maybe?.....

3.0 has MMS, Tethering, jailbreak and unlock.

i just went and bought my wife a new 32gb 3gs from an att store and it has 3.1. apparently there is supposed to be a jailbreak released on monday, but i'd much rather not have to deal with that nonsense...can you return it at any att store or the one that you bought the phone at? i don't think that they have any 3.0 phones at where i bought it. also, is there a way to tell if it has 3.0 from the box, without opening it? maybe a date code or something?

nevermind...i got a 3.0.1 and jailbroke it.
