Purchasing an iPhone 3GS in 2012
Hello, I am new to the forums.
Well I have a 64GB Wifi iPad 2, and the plan was to buy a 4S to compliment it. But now thanks to financial problems it ain't happening. I am being made to look at alternatives - way below the 4S price point of £499.
So while Android doesn't appeal, webOS is dead, Windows Phone is... Microsoft ..
I've been offered a BlackBerry, and I don't want one to be honest. Nothing but bad reviews.
Currently using the painfully slow iPhone 3G 8GB on iOS 4, I was planing on purchasing an 8GB 33GS new from Apple at £310.
It's the best iOS phone I can afford and it's that or something 'out of the Eco system' which I am trying to avoid.
What do you guys think?

The 3GS is still a good phone. I just bought one a week ago despite it being an old phone, but it is still plenty fast enough, even on iOS 5. It lags occasionally, but pretty rarely. I can play some games like Temple Run and Mega Jump just fine on it. If you are set on an iPhone and can find a cheap 3GS, I'd recommend it.

Of course you can. Other than the screen resolution I really didn't notice that much difference between my 3GS and the 4S when I upgraded. You should be able to get a used 3GS fairly cheap.
I'm just wondering if you're financially strapped, do you really need a smartphone? Most of the cost is in the plan, not the hardware.
