I was looking around on this and I'm wondering, do anyone of you guys know a link to a free iPhone with a 2yr contract? What do you guys think of the iPhone? I am thinking of getting one or an iPod Touch. Do you guys have US deals for iPod Touch under $70?

One way you can link a free iphone with a two yr contract is by going into AT&T(us) i think its orange in UK, but either way.... you go into one of their stores and have them activate it with your account. The second way: If you don't want to do that you can jailbreak it with pwnage tool or quickpwn (you can search on youtube for a tutorial) and then you unlock it (again use youtube for tutorial) and then put your sim card in the phone. If you dont use AT&T/ Orange you will have to use the second choice. If you have any other questions just PM me.

It depends on your definition of on.... I can leave mine on (the 3G) but the screen is completely off and it isn't doing anything (if that's what you mean it will last a few days). Now if you mean on as in using it and the screen is always on it will last anywhere from about 5 hours (depending on brightness and other phone settings) to about 12hrs I would say. These are just rough estimates because I have not actually tested this with my phone. But however this should give you a fairly good idea of how long the battery lasts.

PS the only thing that would change how long the battery lasts in the 3G compared to the original is wether you have the 3G service turned on or not.

Hope this helps!

Hardly.

There are plenty of carriers around with the iPhone, hell there are at least 5 networks here (Telstra/Optus/Virgin/Vodafone/Three) carrying the iPhone.

Of course if OP is in America and they want to use it on T-Mobile they'd have to do it, but it'd suck anyway because it'd always be on GSM and have EDGE data at best, due to iPhone supporting 850/1900/2100Mhz UTMS/HSPDA (3G), where T-Mobile is 1700Mhz

E: OP you won't get an iPhone for $0 upfront unless you get a contract with a high payment per month (here its generally $59/mth for free iPhone, something like $99/mth for free iPhone 3GS). If you really want to be cheap, buy an iPhone 2G, again you'd only have EDGE speeds. Might not be worth it though, don't know about your country but here in Aussie all the old GSM networks will start shutting down in a year or two rendering 2G iPhones useless

I don't think that is going to happen here in America any time soon. But you said the phone would suck on T-Mobile well here we have basically two choices for the iphone, suffer with AT&T's over priced wireless plans a data plans or use T-Mobile. I chose T-Mobile and to tell you the truth I tested my phone against a friends running 3G and I saw almost no difference. Oh and over here there would be no way of getting one for free through a wireless company.

Thought I point out that it's O2 UK that operate the iPhone contract

Also in my opinion, think about it before you rip yourself off.
