iPhone 3G has . a different shape . the ability to download apps . better Safari and . is cheaper . is more user friendly . comes in 2 colors . is faster.
3G is the service for things like the internet... just like in the old iphone there is Edge.
They are both very close in size with the iPhone 3G having a rounded back. There is no obvious size difference, however.
Yes, all currently sold iPhones can receive internet from AT&T's 3G wireless internet in America and other carriers' 3G internet in other countries.
Original answer by Markbarner Edited by Arianna Lovendino 3G mobile internet is faster. GPS functions are a little bit moreprecise. Sounds are louder. I would buy an iPhone 3G, if I wereyou. But you can wait. There is a new iPhone model arriving inJuly.
The iPhone 3G: has App Store better battery better quality more features different size and weight. iPhone 3G can support GSM, WCDMA, UMTS.
\n. \n. \nIt is a Apple Type of Phone.You can also listen to music and others!
i would say that in battery time the 2G is better. The network connection is more stable on the 2g. on the 3g mobile internet is faster, sounds are louder, GPS function is a little bit more precise. I would buy a 3G phone now if i was you, but if you can wait... theres a new iPhone coming in July
\nYes. It's called iPhone first generation or simply iPhone. However it's not available new or with a warranty. The only ones available are used on sites like ebay.com or through a friend.
The 3G S has more features like voice recognition, a compass, video recording (with a 3 megapixel camera) and a GPS. You can also stream movies and TV shows straight to your phone in areas that have wireless internet.Also if you would like to compare the prices the iphone 3g cost $99.99 and the ipho…ne 3gs cost $199.99.But i consider the the iphone 3gs is the best. (MORE)
Yess you can ( but not through the itunes updates). if you are available for an upgrade, just go to the store and you can get the 16GB iPhone for $199, or the 32GB for $299. IF you are NOT available for an upgrade, each is $100 more expensive (16GB-$299 and 32GB-$399). Hope that helped! :) well …i dont think you can becuz the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS are not the same thing. Most of the time the upgrades are free.. so yeh u cant upgrade a iPHone 3G to iPhone 3GS cuz they are both different phones. (MORE)
the 3gs is a lot faster all around. it also has a compass. takes better pictures , ad has a few more features if your trying to decide definitely pay a little for for the 3gs its well worth the extra money
The 3G S has more features like voice recognition, a compass, video recording (with a 3 megapixel camera) and a GPS. You can also stream movies and TV shows straight to your phone in areas that have wireless internet. For more info got to www.apple.com and click on a iPhone
Yes, all iPhone 3G external accessories fit the iPhone 3GS since they are the same size and shape.
The iPhone 3gs is the best it is more lightweight and is quicker but is more expensive. But - what are my first impressions of the iPhone 3G? 1. Good: the ugrade procedure was painless. Plug it in, and it asked me whether I was upgrading. I said yes. It silently copied everything over to the new iPh…one 3G - settings, music, wallpaper, photos, the lot. 2. Fail: the iPhone 3G doesn't come with a dock, unlike the original. 3. Fail: the dock for the original iPhone does not fit the new one - the new iPhone is slightly wider. This is damn annoying, Apple. More annoying: the Apple store has sold out of the new ones. 4. Fail: it feels cheaper. Mostly, this the plastic back, which has a cheap-looking printed Apple logo on it (rather the nice inset metal one on the metal back of the iPhone). 5. Fail: its bulging back means that you can't stick it on a table and type on it - it now rocks and won't stay still. Very annoying. 6. Fail: 3G actually doesn't appear to make much difference. Downloads aren't really much faster; and because the phone likes 3G cellsites over EDGE cellsites, that means that at home I now get the weak 3G cellsite with only one bar, instead of the full 5-bar EDGE cellsite. And given that my phone's stuck on my home wifi, that's doubly annoying. 7. Good: there are some design tweaks. Notably, there's a visible piece of rubber between the glass front and the metal casing, enabling (one would assume) less glass breakages from dropping it. And the little buttons (mute and volume) are rather nicer, made from nice shiny metal. 8. Fail: the annoying inset headphone socket is now no longer inset. This means that leaving the phone in your pocket with headphones plugged in will now flex the circuit-board and the headphone socket, instead of being protected with a big amount of metal. (There really is no pleasing me, is there?) 9. Fail: the new operating system is notably more sluggish than the original, sprightly, v1. Hitting 'contacts' or 'SMS' makes me wait a good five seconds or so before the phone wakes up. And there's at least one bug with the 'delete' key, which appears to go mad and delete great swathes of text. 10. Good: audio quality on calls is notably improved. 11. Fail: the last.fm app doesn't monitor what's playing (unlike the jailbreak MobileScrobbler version). 12. Fail: the wifi connections for BT Openzone and The Cloud need resetting, which isn't entirely obvious if you're using wifi to check your email. 13. Fail: the iPhone now performs a backup every single time you connect it to iTunes, making quick synchs a thing of the past. (MORE)
Yes. The only difference b/w the two phones is something like .1 oz. There is no size difference.
I have an iPhone 3GS and the only difference is that you can take videos, you can use voice control, and it has more memory. Let me improve that answer. The iPhone 3G[S] is more than 2x faster, has more powerful processors. (You need it for most 3D apps (like games) to run smoothly, and for augmen…ted reality.) The iPhone 3G and original iPhone CAN record video, once jailbroken. (This is free) The iPhone 3G[S] costs more than the iPhone 3G. The iPhone 3G[S] has a digital compass. (This allows for navigation and augmented reality apps.) The iPhone 3G[S] is available in Black or White, while the iPhone 3G is available in only Black. The iPhone 3G[S] has restrictions made by Apple to make jailbreaking just that little bit more complex, but it is always possible. When the 3G[S] was first released, jailbreaks for each firmware version were a while behind jailbreaks for the 3G, but now there is more known about its inner workings, and it is more widely adopted, jailbreaks come out at nearly the same time, if not sooner, for the 3G[S], so no worries now. But if you are thinking of buying an iPhone, I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND waiting till June/July to see the new iPhone, and if it will be worth its price. There are reports of the NEW iPhone being cheaper. (MORE)
ANSWER First of all mac doesn't refund their phones, so your answer is FULL price. ANSWER It depends on whether you are available for an upgrade or not. To check just text some number, I think it's like 611 and they will tell you if you're available. But annywayyyy.... if you happen t…o be available which pretty much means you have had the same iPhone and plan for a full year, the 3G's will cost $199 for the 16GB, and $299 for the 32GB. IF you are not available for an upgrade, it is $299 for the 16 GB and $399 for the 32 GB. (MORE)
The iPhone 3GS is a little thicker, but not noticeable to the naked eye. There is a notable difference between GB size though.
You can get a iphone 3gs at the apple store, at At&t, Amazon, Ebay, craigslist.
if you want to record videos, then you can find tons of apps that will allow you to shoot videos.
The iPhone 3GS has more internal ram which enables the device torun at a higher speed than the iPhone 3G. The 3GS supports abackground and multitasking, whereas the 3G does not. Internetspeeds are the same.
The Apple iPhone 3GS was followed by the iPhone 4 in June of 2010, and the iPhone 4S in October of 2011.
The iPhone 3GS. It's faster, has an improved camera with video recording capabilities, has a digital compass and more. It's also compatible with the latest software (at the moment), iOS 6.1, whereas the iPhone 3G is only compatible up to iOS 4.2, meaning you won't get as many software features and m…any apps won't be compatible. (MORE)
not much other than the OSI is much faster and the camera has video recording and that's pretty much it
Messages, Calendar, Photos, Camera, YouTube, Stocks, Maps, Weather, Voice Memos, Notes, Clock, Calculator, Settings, iTunes Store, App Store, Compass, Contacts.
to get an iphone 3gs you can either buy it, find one, or win one anywhere in the world
No it will not work, I tried doing that myself when I was repairing an iphone because i thought I used the right screen. It turns out that the digitizer layout is different. So if you do switch the screens up, if you click on an app, it will go to the one next to it.
Alrite. First of all,China does not have iPhone 3g..it is most likely a fake clone iPhone that is freaking slow..The only china city that sells the actual iPhone is Shanghai..it is exactly like the American iPhone 3g,but it is slower
If you aren't getting any internet access whatsoever, then you should make sure the iPhone has been activated with AT&T. If you are only getting a connection through "Edge" (the letter E will appear in the top bar), then you are either not in an area that has 3G available or it is simply disabled. … To make sure you have 3G enabled, go to Settings > General > Network. If the "enable 3G" button is off, turn it on. If it IS on, but you aren't getting 3G coverage in places you normally do, I would contact AT&T. (MORE)
Sorry but no, cydia and ice are only allowed to modify your idevice to great extincts. But you cannot use it to surge into peoples wireless network. Think of it as painting your car red and trying your key in your neighbors lambo. Just dosnt work that way.
Picture messaging is available on every model of the iPhone, including the 3G. However, this feature is only available if your iPhone software is running on version 3.0 or later. You can check your software version by going to Settings > General > About...and then scrolling down to "Version". If th…is says you have a version older than 3.0 (such as 2.x), then you need to update. All you have to do is plug your iPhone into your computer and start iTunes. Once iTunes recognizes your phone, click your phone's name on the side bar and you should see a message informing you that a newer version of software is available. Allow iTunes to perform the update and, after your iPhone reboots, picture messaging will be available. (MORE)
Mainly,the iphone 4 has face-chat enabled over wifi only,and it has a clearer resolution,so it has higher graphic.it also has faster processor,so it doesn't lag that much. it also comes with multitasking and home screen change enabled when you buy it. Hope this helps!
Exactly the same how ever the iphone 3g has a little bit wider screen and faster data speeds due to the fact that it supports 3g whereas the original iphone only supports edge or 2g
iPhone 4 has a range of improvements including high resolution screen, gyroscope, improved processor, 512MB RAM, 5 megapixel camera with flash and a front facing camera for video calling. ----------- iPhone 4 has better specs than 3gs. You can check some reviews on this site. (See the so…urces below) (MORE)
the sim card just holds network information not phone information so yes you can transfer your sim card without any problems i had a sim card from about 3 years ago and i just bought a iphone 3gs and it works fine in it
the 3gs is much better for it's money iphone 3gs is better, i think. but it is very dear. it seems that you have enough money. if not, you can buy cheap phone instead.
Well,you can't really distinguish them by just looking at them.But iPhone 3gs has a compass app,unlike the iphone 3g. And you can also see how much faster the iphone 3gs can launches apps than the 3g. and iphone 3gs can record video,whereas on iphone 3g,you have to jailbreak it to download video rec…ording app. Hope This Helps The main difference is the RAM and CPU. iPhone 3GS is more faster then iPhone 3G, you can distinguish it by surf the same website or play the same game.

The iPhone 3G was launched July 11, 2008 The 3GS almost a year later, June 19 2009
I am assuming you are asking if you can update the iPhone software from the device directly rather than using a computer. Unfortunately, no, you cannot. The iOS (software used by the iPhone) can only be updated by using iTunes on your PC or Mac. This is because your iPhone needs to be "backed up" be…fore undergoing a change to the device's operating system. No worries, though. With the constant progressions in technology, I'm sure we'll be able to do this within a few years! (MORE)
The difference you will see between the iphone 3G/3G S and the iPhone 4 is quite noticable. Especially the design. AS for the iphone 3G,there is no recently used apps bar (multi-tasking), you can't have a background wallpaper on the homescreen. As for the 3G S, you have both of these features. Howev…er, the iphone 4 has the Retina display, which the previous models do not. The iphone 4 has facetime (video calling), which the previous model does not. The iphone 4 can do HD video recording, has 5.0 MP with flash. I believe the 3G does 2.0? and the 3G S has 3.0 MP to it. No flash on previous models. Really, you can just go to the iphone section and i'm sure you can compare between the iphone 4 and the 3G S. In US, they do still sell the 3G S model but in 8 GB of storage, each country could be different where they could still sell the 16 GB model or the 32 GB, but very unlikely, unless they have few in stock. iphone 4 comes with either 16 GB or a 32 GB. (MORE)
No, it does not. The two models use different cables altogether; sucks, I know. Life would be so much easier.
no it has different connectors, make sure you by a correct digitizer or your wasting your money. 3g has a larger connector and the 3gs will not click into place on a 3g. even if you force the connector into place the pins will not seat correctly and the digitiser will malfunction. some ditributors a…re not aware of this so make sure your 100% before you order....... again the 3gs has a smaller connector (MORE)
The exterior design is relatively the same, what separates the 3Gs is the processor and RAM. With the camera also being upgraded to 3.2 MP
Well on my iphone i got the developer version for IOS 5 before it was released. First you need to download itunes 10.5. go onto apple.com and click the itunes tab. you can find it there. then if your phone is compatible it Will say your phone has an update IF IT IS PLUGGED INTO YOUR COMPUTER. IF IT… DOESN'T NOT GO ONTO APPLE.COM AND SEARCH FOR IOS 5 (MORE)
yes of course i ve done it.....its nice but it may stucs some times if you have many programs to task manager........
The iPhone 3GS came out more than 2 years before the 4S, between that time there has also been the iPhone 4. There is a difference in the basic things, like the memory has became bigger, available now is a 64GB memory, in the past 64GB was not an available option. There is also the processor, the pr…ocessor will be upgraded to a brand new, faster and overall better processor. With every new product that comes out, the camera the camera will be bumped up to have higher megapixels and better optics. The iPhone 3GS was replaced with the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4 had a complete redesign, instead of using plastic Apple decided to go with glass and construct a steel band around the edge of the phone. The iPhone 3GS screen was a LCD capacitive touchscreen, on the iPhone 4 the screen changed to become the first Retina display on a smartphone. The steel band around the edge of the iPhone 4, held the glass together and it made it look like the sexiest phone around. But it was flawed with antenna issues, the antenna would not work properly if the phone was held a certain way. Ofcourse everyone complained and there was a huge uproar about this at the time, but the CEO at that time, Steve Jobs, his solution was to give away free bumpers for the phone or return it. He held a conference about the issue because of the global outcry of antenna problems, he then showed a presentation styled keynote of other phones form various different brands which had similar problems and pointed them out. Apple did a great job with the design of the iPhone 4, but with putting so much effort into the design and physical attributes to the iPhone 4, they overlooked other aspect of the phone. In 2011 the iPhone 4 was replaced by the iPhone 4S, which had better camera, memory, processor and camera. Steve Jobs died a few days after the release of the phone. The iPhone 4S has no antenna problems, this time they have made sure that there is no problems with any aspect of the phone. The 3GS also never had a front facing camera, meaning you could not video call, with the iPhone 4 Apple introduced a front facing camera, which allows the use of Apples own Skype-like service which they aptly named FaceTime. FaceTime is just like Skype, it is only compatible with Apple products unlike Skype, which can be used with Mac, PC, iPhone, Android, etc... Apple also introduced Siri, a voice recognition system, which allows the user of the phone to ask questions to the phone when pressing the HOME button, unlike other smartphone operating systems Siri allows you to talk to the iPhone and it comes up with answers. There is only so many questions you can ask it, depending on where you live there are some services that some people living in the US will get that other countries will not get. And there is the fact that Siri is still a working progress, over time it will get better. The iPhone 4S is currently the latest iPhone to be released. Speculation is constantly going on about when the next iPhone will be released, some say this summer, others say it will not be until the winter. There is no one that will be able to tell you because Apple are tight lipped when it comes to releasing new products. But the iPhone 4S is a brilliant phone, if you are thinking of getting it then you should, it is worth the money. (MORE)
Just plug it into a computer with itunes and find the update button within itunes. It should come up on a screen saying that a new iOs is available would you like to update!
Yes. iPhone 5 headphones come with the standard 3.5mm headset jack. The 3GS has the same size port.
Considering updating your iPhone forces you to update to the latest software available for the device, updating an iPhone 3GS now will update it to iOS 6.
