    Some advice on iPhone 3gs 32GB, How much is it worth?

    I have been offered an iPhone 3GS 32GB for £300 from a relative. The phone was replaced 4 months ago and so is in mint condition and still has apple care till august, to sweeten the deal she said I can pay in installments. it is unlocked and comes boxed with everything.

    So people, is this a good deal? I currently have a Nokia X6 which is a piece of ****, but have borrowed my brothers HTC desire which I love. To complicate things my contract is up so i could get a desire pretty cheap on contract or buy the iphone for cash and get a sim only deal.

    I have never had an iPhone, i admit they look nice but the camera and processor speed put me off a bit and surely the iphone 5 is on the horizon and will push the 3GS price down. so what would you do ?

    Cheers Jake

    Forgot to mention, the iPhone is boxed with everything like new. Also interested in peoples opinions of the camera and wether the 3gs will become slow like the 3g when a new os is released.

    Cheers, so is £300 a fair price do you think? It is also unlocked if that makes much difference, prices on ebay vary so much its hard to judge.

    I have the exact same phone, I would not sell mine for under £300 I'd say it's a very fair price and even has around 6 months warranty left on it!!

    Regarding the Camera and processor. I don't find the phone slow at all, and the camera is fine for what it is (it's not a HD camera and doesn't have a flash but takes fine pics for me!!

    Thanks for reply, I am very tempted. Do you find the signal is good as that is my pet hate with my x6, the signal constantly goes up and down, very frustrating!

    Gawd, I gave my 3gs in brand spanking new nick only a few months old etc to my 10 year old when I bought my Iphone4, maybe I should have charged her for it ?????

    Oh well, such is life........

    Still prefer the "hand feel" of the 3gs to the 4, its a more manly phone lookswise I think (the 4 not the 3), might just ask her to swap me back.
