new iPhone user (need some help)
I got iPhone 3g from my cousin (he upgraded to iPhone 4 which is amazing) but anyways I have some questions. He jailbroke it and everything so it would work (he had tmobile, and I have tmobile) and I wanted to know before i erase everything,
1) how can i delete his text messages and contacts that are on the iPhone?
2) should i just restore it?
3) syncing it to my itunes?
I have few more but i cant think of them at the moment but those are the more important/main ones.

If it were me, I'd restore it and this will upgrade you to iOS4. Some have said it is much slower, but that has not been my experience with the 3G that we have at the office. I restored a couple of them and played around with them and they seem just fine. I think many that are having lagging or real slow issues is because they upgraded instead of restoring.
Restore it, make it your own by setting it up as a new iPhone for yourself with your own iTunes account.

Well the text and contacts can simply be deleted! You can also go to setting / store and click sign out which will remove his iTune info. Then you can log into yours. You should then be able to sync just fine.
To remove the message just go to Text: Edit and you'll see minuses on the left side. Click those and they will be deleted.
To Remove Recent Calls: Click on Phone/ Recent/ Clear
Contacts: Click on each one hit edit/delete, you also have the option of syncing it with your own exchange account or google gmail account if you have one. Also if he has a mail account on there if you delete it and his contacts are synced through it, it may automatically delete them all.
Hope this helps!

If you restore the iPhone this will get rid of the jailbreak and the unlock and you will have to jailbreak and unlock the phone. I would recommend restoring it and then setting it up as a new phone and look at the jailbreaking section of the forum to get started with that... I am not familiar with an unlock with t-mobile so this is as much as I can help you except for actually jailbreaking tips... Good luck and enjoy your new iPhone!
