can be fixed,or it is a software problem??
A good piece of tech. Still works quite well with new networks (at least where I live). The only problem is that it is no longer updated, and it's nigh impossible to find apps within the App Store that are still compatible with iOS below 5 (the maximum for 3G is iOS 4.2.1, it cannot be upgraded any further).
If jailbroken, however, the apps are abundant and the phone becomes even more useful. It's tough to break (although there are a few weak points: the battery connector, the vibrator connector and the infamous mute switch), and the protective glass really does its job (I had to swap it out once, but that was after a deliberate throw). The battery is theoretically non-removable, but with some basic manual ability and a size PH00 (or thereabouts) Phillips screwdriver it's practically a cinch (around 45 minutes to an hour for the first time, about 30 minutes in subsequent attempts).
Pros: strong, reliable. Some hacking potential. With the right software useful as a network diagnostic tool as well. Battery replacements are cheap and abundant, too.
Cons: the battery tends to get weaker with time, and does require replacing within about 24-30 months.
Also, the iPhone won't properly work with just any USB charger - the DATA+ and DATA- pins need to be set to specific voltage levels for the phone to even attempt charging. A voltage divider network does the job though, making it a viable option 'on the cheap' (and it can be incorporated into the cable, too).
In general, it's a good piece of tech. Don't throw it away, if you don't have to.
I'm still using this phone. Jail breaked iPhone 3G. It is a fine durable piece of technology for hard use.
I have G3 I phone that has given me great service for over 4 years. I think the battery is finally failing. I sure hope I can have it fixed and keep it.
folks mine is an iphone 3g 4.1 jail broke and i have a doubt that ,hoe to upgrade
haha, we all know this , its not a secret, this phone was made in 2008 so cant get the latest updates and for the age still rocks and looks great..
This is not much different to the original with the very small battery, small screen and rubbish camera. It is stronger than the older I phone it can survive getting knocked onto concrete from ear height dropping on the back or sides. I however wouldn't trust the screen. If you have the first I phone this isn't really worth the couple hundred extra pounds spent on this upgrade.
